You've been given the Kevin Feige role and must build up the NCU's Phase I to a Super Smash Bros. movie, complete with a shot that resembles the famous Avengers circle, just with, say, Donkey Kong in the Hulk spot, or Link drawing the bow and arrow, etc.
Here's the deal: you've got free reign, here. You can introduce as many or as few characters as you like, you could start with a Mario movie or with someone else, you can choose whomever you prefer as your breakout villain, you can come up with whatever Easter eggs you think would work best to connect the films before the big crossover event, etc.
Now...sell us on your idea.
Also, in before any references to that thread where the guy cast a Mario movie with things like "Steve Buscemi as Lakitu" or whatever that was all about.

Mario has been fighting evil for 20 years. He’s retired now. Now Mario’s spine is a mess, his brother is dead, no one has heard from Peach in years. Mushroom Kingdom is a cesspool. He’s content to drink and whore himself to death while Yoshi makes snide remarks and is just generally a nag.
This all changes when Kirby shows up and destroys the Mushroom Kingdom embassy.
Now Mario is obsessed with finding Kirby’s weakness. He will kill anyone who gets on his way. Nothing will stop him from killing this fat pink bastard. If there’s even a 1% chance of Kirby turning evil, he must take it as AN ABSOLUTE CERTAINTY!
Start with Fire Emblem. You basically have to if you want to make any sort of decent narrative out of it, because it's both one of the only things they have that lends itself to that and the Outrealms give you freedom to do whatever the hell you want and lay the groundwork for everything that comes afterward.
That said as for what Fire Emblem game to start with... I dunno. I think maybe Awakening just because it has both the largest fanbase and a pretty simple (albeit not very well structured - could pretty easily improve it though) narrative but I could see people calling foul if you don't start with Marth.
From there I'd probably do Metroid, since it'd be a radical shift just to really show how different the worlds can be from each other and the wide array of genres at play, with the plot primarily based off the manga but with some Zero Mission elements (mostly the having to go without the suit for a lot of the climax thing) with Samus overcoming Ridley being the primary focus of the initial narrative but with seeds planted for Mother Brain. Maybe also work in some Metroid 2 with the baby so you just go straight to doing Super, I dunno.
After that I'd probably get to Zelda. That I'd primarily base on Ocarina of Time but I'd borrow some elements of Twilight Princess to flesh it out (plus they're too similar structurally to bother making movies of both of them), mostly adding Midna to the proceedings to have her do the brunt of the talking and to add some comic relief.
Detective Pikachu: I have no idea how the plot of the game goes but at the end of this movie Pikachu and Jigglypuff get hit by an extremely powerful beam by Mewtwo clean out of New Donk City and into a time vortex.
Mother: A multi-season TV show following the plot of Earthbound.
Star Fox: Follows the plot of... well, Star Fox. Only in this case Fox doesn’t get out of the Andross fight fast enough and is sucked into the same vortex as the Pokemon... and Link.
Yoshi (TV series): just a basic kid’s TV show about, well, Yoshi. Set on remote Yoshi Island, Kirby crash lands in one episode on his wrap star and for whatever reason can’t summon a new one. He joins the regular cast of the series after this.
F-Zero: Can Captain Falcon save the world while also trying to win the grand prix? Maybe even throw in a romance subplot. At the end of the movie, Falcon is celebrating on the podium when he’s approached by a mysterious woman referring to herself as just Samus, who hands him an envelope with a Smash logo stamp.
Donkey Kong: Mario and Luigi save New York in the 80’s from the big ape when Pikachu, Jigglypuff, Fox, and Link get thrown into this time. But the fissures caused by the ape’s repeated slaps to the ground cause a giant iceberg sized Freezie to unearth itself and freezes the entire city, causing it to sink underground.
Smash: Samus returns to Earth with Falcon to investigate a way to unfreeze New York. They recruit the help of Ness, who they determine through scans of multiple planets might be the only person in the galaxy currently thay has enough psychic power to reverse the freezing process. Meanwhile, the grandson of the orginal Donkey Kong returns to wreck havoc on the city that sprang up on top of the frozen New York, New Donk City. On his way, the ape destroys Yoshi Island, pissing off Yoshi and Kirby enough to where they start pursuing Kong. Things happen, etc etc Donkey Kong finally turns good after being revealed to be mind controlled by Mewtwo this whole time and all 12 of the orginal Smash Bros. go and get takeout before Samus sends everybody back home through her ship. After the credits, it’s revealed that Andross isn’t dead, and that all along he’s been working under his boss.... Tabuu.
Just a rough outline

Ok, I did have an idea for something awhile back loosely based on Captain N. I thought of it more as a new cartoon, but I could see it working as a set of movies.
Basically all the video game worlds are separate universes in a multiverse. You can travel from one to another via Warp Zones. But a great disaster happened long ago (how long ago depends on which universe you're from as time runs differently in each universe) that caused these warp zones to be closed off from one another, and in many places the knowledge of their existence was lost. That is except for one inter-dimensional specter named Tabuu who can open and close the Warp Zones at will to send his robot armies into new universes to conquer them.
The story opens with Tabuu's army attacking the Legend of Zelda universe. Link attempts to fight them off but they're too much for him and he's captured by Tabuu's main lieutenants, the Master Hands. Link is freed though by the intervention of ROB, one of Tabuu's first robot soldiers who has since gained sentience and rebelled against his former masters evil plans, and Mr. Game & Watch, a strange, shadowy man who also has unusual control over the Warp Zones.
The three travel from universe to universe putting together a new team, a team who's goal it is to re-open the Warp Zones to all, unite all the universes, free the conquered ones, and defeat Tabuu once and for all. The team would eventually also include Samus, Donkey Kong, Kirby and Captain Falcon.
