In a recent interview with Nintendo general manager & game designer Shigeru Miyamoto (Mario, Zelda, etc.), he commented he’s currently busy creating several new games, including: Pikmin 3 for Wii U, Luigi’s Mansion 2 for 3DS, and an unannounced new original game!
To quote Shigeru Miyamoto:
‘Is it too much pressure to try to come out with something new?’ I have to say no, I’m enjoying myself. -Miyamoto
“People have come to expect a lot from me. This certainly makes me feel some pressure. But if you ask me, ‘Is it too much pressure to try to come out with something new?’ I have to say no, I’m enjoying myself. When I make something I always try to do my best.”
So what will his next game look like? Well, it certainly won’t have realistic graphics.
Mr. Miyamoto said: “Each creator has his or her own field for which he or she is particularly good at. I’m not saying that I am particularly bad at making the very photo-realistic video games. But when it comes to the realistic games, you have to create something familiar. I personally want to make something really different.”
In the full video interview below, aside from the original game, the 59-year-old game designer also mentions he’ll be making games for a long long time.
“I really appreciate all the kindness given the kind of comments that I made. But to be clear, I have no intention to retire at all. I’m not old enough to think about retirement right now.”
