Do you all remember when Nintendo bought up Dynamo Pictures, and rebranded it as Nintendo Pictures? Well, now they’re making the acquisition official with a brand new logo for the company. Check it out below:
Everything’s Official with a New Logo
The official website of Nintendo in Japan announced the new logo for Nintendo Pictures, which you can see above. As you can see, it looks very different from their old logo back when they were Dynamo Pictures. Not only does it now have the red and white color scheme associated with Nintendo, but you can also see Nintendo slapping in their own logo on the left side. All seemingly to remind everyone that yes, this company is indeed now officially part of Nintendo. In fact, you can compare it to the old Dynamo Pictures logo below.
It’s not just the new logo Nintendo wants to show us. Nintendo Pictures now also has an official homepage in Japan. Said homepage doesn’t really offer anything new for us though. All it really contains is a reiteration of their goals to produce more video content for Nintendo. Unfortunately, they don’t make any exact claims about what video content they will produce. Just that they want to create some extremely memorable Nintendo videos. Tune back in to THS later to find out what that video content is when we do.
Nintendo Pictures: Pikmin Speculation
According to Nintendo Everything, Nintendo Pictures (or rather, the original Dynamo Pictures company) had originally worked on animation for Metroid: Other M. In addition, they also apparently did the animation for the Pikmin shorts Nintendo released 2 years ago. You can, in fact, watch those Pikmin shorts entirely for free on YouTube now, as you can see above and below. Which is rather ironic since Nintendo originally only made those Pikmin shorts available on the Wii U and Nintendo 3DS eShop, and only released them on YouTube to promote the release of Pikmin 3 Deluxe. My condolences to everyone who paid money to watch those shorts, but hey, at least we now get to see the cute Pikmin action for free.
With that in mind though, it’s entirely possible that a future project for Nintendo Pictures will be a Pikmin anime. We know that Pikmin 4 is coming sometime next year in 2023, so we just might get an accompanying anime to promote it. Which I would be all for, considering how adorable those little carrot-ant people things are. Granted, this is pure speculation at this time. Take it with as much Pikipik carrot-flavored salt as you like.
