From Nintendo's 77th Annual General Shareholder Meeting, we have this interesting exchange.
Q7: Regarding product video, are there any plans to bring back past content like Kirby anime on BD, or old games on DD for console/mobile?
A7: Miyamoto: We hold the Kirby IP and it’s growing in Europe. It’s selling in Spain; watched in places w/out game hardware. We want to make anime for Pikmin, Star Fox, Yoshi, etc. and distribute it freely, or integrate into games.
This doesn't mean we WILL see a Star Fox anime, but they want to do it and are far enough in the consideration stage to talk about it openly. I, for one, can't wait to see what they can do, after the awesome Star Fox: The Battle Begins short. Of course, this is a fan-translation. Though he is very reliable, I'm told, take this translation with a grain of salt.
Ayano Harumaki says that this is a slight mistranslation. According to her translation of the original Japanese transcript from NStyles, Miyamoto was referring to pre-existing Pikmen, Yoshi animations and Star Fox: The Battle Begins, not interest in making new animations. Here's her translation:
Miyamoto: We hold the Kirby IP and it's growing in Europe and it's selling in Spain well. We can sell the visual products even in areas where gaming machines cannot be sold. We made anime of Pikmin, Starfox, Yoshi etc. and distribute it freely, or integrate into games.
I guess we'll have to wait and see with an official translation to be absolutely sure. It all hinges are whether they were talking about the future or the past.
