If the new Mario animated film gets a video game tie-in, who’s gonna make it? Will Nintendo be willing to trust anyone but themselves with the task? This though has been in my head for awhile and no news has come out confirming or denying such a possibility. So what do you guys think?

The Sonic movies didn't get tie in games, so I doubt Mario will.
Sound, but every company operates differently. It’s like saying just because Ubisoft didn’t do it, then Square Enid won’t do it either.

It’s sort of like asking if there will be a new Star Wars movie, then will there be a new Lego video game after it? To be honest, we just don’t know. I’m not saying it’s impossible.

The purpose of the film at least from Nintendo's perspective is expand their audience and the popularity of the brand. IE they it drives people to buy more Dwitches and Mario games. To this end they don't really need a new because all the existing ones will essentially be new to that audience. What they need to do is have an awesome bundle that's like Switch+Kart+Odyssey+Maker or something.

I feel like the movie will only get a tie-in game if the movie itself is successful. Nintendo might see it as a waste of time making a game based on the movie if the it didn't do so well.

I mean SONIC was a huge hit. There's a trend of actually decent video game TV shows/movies coming out, why not get a jump start with Mario?
