    Remembering Brian Goldner one year after his death

    Today marks one year since Brian Goldner died. Brian ran as CEO of Hasbro for 13 years, and has been with the company since 2000. Before that, he was Executive Vice President and COO of Bandai America, where he oversaw Bandai's United States operations, including merchandise for Power Rangers...

    Nintendo to Acquire Dynamo Pictures; Accelerates Interest in Animation

    https://www.nintendo.co.jp/ir/pdf/2022/220714e.pdf Yesterday, news broke out that Nintendo is planning to acquire Dynamo Pictures, a Tokyo-based CGI animation company, by October of this year and renaming it "Nintendo Pictures" with the intent to accelerate its foray into the realms of...

    Kingdom Hearts Tamagotchi Nano

    It's been awhile since we last touched on this, but I found this tweet that confirms that Disney actually straight-up said "Go Ahead!" to Nintendo when approached for Sora's inclusion in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, and that it was Tetsuya Nomura who was kinda iffy on the idea, mostly because he...

    Jurassic World Tamagotchi Nano

    I will admit that most of the Nano crossovers are pretty left-field, and their announcement frequency is making me think that Bandai Namco may be trying to make Tamagotchi their answer to Lego or even Funko license-wise as opposed to developing Tamagotchi as a franchise with the material they've...

    Jurassic World Tamagotchi Nano

    Bandai Namco surprises us with yet another Nano. After the R2-D2 Tamagotchi, the Toy Story Tamagotchi, and the Kingdom Hearts Tamagotchi, we'd expect Disney to be the primary, if not the sole, source of western Nano themes. Well, we were just proven wrong, as yesterday came the announcement of...

    Kingdom Hearts Tamagotchi Nano

    If Smash Bros. is anything to go by, I don't see why Tamagotchi wouldn't be. Now to ponder on how Kingdom Hearts terminology would apply to the Tamagotchi Universe. Are the Ura counterparts the nobodies of a Tamagotchi? Are the Spacy Brothers secretly affiliated with Organization XIII? What...

    Kingdom Hearts Tamagotchi Nano

    On the subject of Kingdom Hearts itself, Square Enix just confirmed Kingdom Hearts IV. A release date or platforms weren't specified, just confirmation that it is indeed happening. I'm suspecting it'll release later this decade and will be on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, and not the Nintendo...

    Kingdom Hearts Tamagotchi Nano

    Going back to the Kingdom Hearts Tamagotchi Nano - I am surprised that Bandai Namco is able to convince Disney to license their stuff for Nanos without a care about the royalties. I've heard people say Disney laid out a steep licensing bill to Nintendo for Sora's inclusion in Super Smash Bros...

    Kingdom Hearts Tamagotchi Nano

    I'm aware of Bandai Namco Filmworks and Sunrise, but I meant a visual content production unit here in an English-speaking market. The only business unit in the ballpark of international visual content production according to that website is Shanghai's Sunrise. If modern Bandai Namco aims to...

    Kingdom Hearts Tamagotchi Nano

    Bandai Namco's logo change came into effect today, and it appears that Bandai America has been renamed "Bandai Namco Toys & Collectables America" after merging with Bluefin Brands, confirming your stance on them being a toymaker. This streamlining of Bandai Namco's business on an...

    Kingdom Hearts Tamagotchi Nano

    So what you're saying is that when/if Bandai decides to provide some form of animated content for Tamagotchi, be it through a dub of the existing anime or something entirely new, they could license it to competing platforms like Paramount+, HBO Max, Peacock, Crunchyroll, or Prime Video despite...

    Kingdom Hearts Tamagotchi Nano

    Don’t assume your dreams are just fantasy. If you can imagine a world, believe in it…and dive in. If you thought the R2-D2 Tamagotchi and the Toy Story Tamagotchi are as close as Bandai was gonna get to Nano-ing up with Disney, you ain't seen nothing yet. In honor of the 20th Anniversary of the...

    US Tamagotchi ON App shutting down in August

    Somewhere, Mr. Blinky is feeling a disturbance in the force.

    Toy Story Tamagotchi Nano

    Yeah, I did miss that. According to the article, the changes will take into effect on the same day Bandai Namco's logo changes from that groovy shape and warm color combination to the textbox with plain black text. I guess fusing with the more collector-favored BlueFin means Bandai America...

    Toy Story Tamagotchi Nano

    I was expecting it to happen one way or another, but not with a July 13th release date. The only way I can see that day working is if Lightyear got the Encanto treatment and became streamable on Disney+ that day provided the ongoing pandemic pampers with its theatrical run, or if it skips...
