Song-opinion: Is Nintendo doomed?

Chris Plante co-founded Polygon in 2012 and is now editor-in-chief. He co-hosts The Besties, is a board member of the Frida Cinema, and created NYU’s first games journalism course.

Plenty of opinion pieces have been written about the future of Nintendo. But we have a music video. "Is Nintendo Doomed" is the work of freelance contributor Jonathan Mann, a self-proclaimed Nintendo fanboy.

Jonathan Mann is best known as the "song-a-day guy." He's been writing, recording, producing and posting a song and video every day since Jan. 1, 2009. His videos have appeared all over the web from Boing Boing to the Huffington Post front page to TechCrunch, and on national television, such as live performances on The Rachel Maddow Show and Anderson Cooper Live. In addition, Steve Jobs opened his "Antennagate" press conference with a video and song created by Mann. He also wrote The Mario Opera, the world's first rock opera based on the Super Mario Bros.
