Invited to the podcast Serfdom This Monday, February 1st, he explains that someone from Netflix decided to share the information with the Wall Street Journal, which completely cooled Nintendo and closed the door to other customization options.
Fantastic Mr. StarFox
Here we learn that Conover was linked to another of these suggested adjustments. According to him, entertainment company CollegeHumor could have been working on a StarFox stop-motion series
I worked at CollegeHumor and we had a secret project: we wanted to do a StarFox sound animation series with Nintendo. I know because Shigeru Miyamoto came to our office, and I remember it very well because I asked my boss if I could be there that day – because it was the weekend – to see Shigeru Miyamoto. He said no to me and I’m still mad at him … Then, a month later, suddenly there were articles saying that Netflix was not going to do the Zelda series anymore. I wondered what had happened. And then my boss told us that we wouldn’t do our StarFox anymore. I asked for an explanation. He said to me, “Someone on Netflix leaked the The Legend of Zelda thing, they shouldn’t be talking about it, Nintendo panicked … and they took everything off, the whole customization program.”
And if there’s one company that doesn’t mess around with NDAs (nondisclosure agreements) and secrets and hates being cut off under their feet, it’s Nintendo. To betray your trust can be very expensive and ruin dreams. Does this mean the company in Kyoto, looking to expand into different media, won’t try again for Zelda and Fox elsewhere and elsewhere?
