Little is known as of yet.
The article reports from an unnamed source that, in the process of hiring writers, Netflix is comparing the series to “Game of Thrones” but geared to a ‘family audience’. It was said that Netflix is “working closely with Nintendo” on development. A representative from Netflix declined to comment, and as of now Nintendo has not commented either.
In December of 2014, Netflix released its original series “Marco Polo”, which at the time drew comparison to Game of Thrones. As of this post, the series garners 30% on Rotten Tomatoes. Marco Polo has been renewed for a second season.
