Shigeru Miyamoto – creator of some of the most beloved franchises in video gaming history; like Mario, Donkey Kong and Zelda – is somehow under the deluded impression that the stuff he’s done in the last 5 years is his best work. â€œUnusualâ€ titles like Wii fit Plus and â€œWii Sports Resort.â€
â€œTen years ago I could never have been able to imagine that I would be making games like that,â€ she said to MCVUK, continuingÂ â€œThat’s why I can say that the best is yet to come to me.â€ I enjoy those titles for what they are – but rather reference stuff like Super Mario Galaxy as for what the future may hold, mmkay?
What the future may hold though – quite obviously – is a successor to the Wii.
â€œTechnology is always evolving and Nintendo, just like other companies, is going to integrate those technologies into our new products as they develop,â€ Miyamoto added. â€œWhether that be a Wii HD, Wii 2 or an entirely new console, I am not in a position to say at the moment.
â€œI think that in the next generation of hardware, the challenge is how unique and different a product Nintendo is able to make.â€
I have a re-acquainted love with my Wii, having found a bunch of games that play to the systems strengths – and I have pretty high hopes for Nintendo’s next system – just don’t cater to the Wii fit masses too much next time round, please.
