Shigeru Miyamoto Is Working Hard To Find The Next Big Nintendo Hit

Legendary games designer Shigeru Miyamoto has confessed to investors that he feels pressured to find the next big hit Nintendo franchise which will change the face of the games industry and also the fortunes of Nintendo. Miyamoto wouldn’t be drawn into revealing his plans but we do know he’s been working on hard on a new Nintendo IP.

“I am spending more time than before on finding new ideas for new developments rather than focusing my energy on work in my (development) teams in order to solidify the contents of (existing) franchise titles. After all, developing big hit titles must be the solution [to Nintendo’s ongoing financial losses].”
“I am acting with the understanding that one big hit title can change multiple phases of a situation in the entertainment business, and I feel that finding such one big hit is my basic job.”

    1. SOME PPL JUST DONT KNOW WHEN TO QUIT SMDH… -_- HE’S PRACTICALLY A WALKING DEAD. THE OLD FART AIN’T GOT MUCH LONGER TO LIVE, LET YOUNGER, FRESHER MINDS MAKE GAMES YOU AINT GOT IT IN U NO MORE OLD MAN. UR “CREATIVNESS” (BUT NOT ORIGINALITY, SINCE U URSELF ADMITED TO COPYING FROM OTHER COMPANIES ESPECIALLY DURING THE N64 & GAMECUBE ERA source:kotaku&1up) CEASED TO EXIST AFTER MARIO 64 & OCARINA OF TIME. EVERY GAME FOLLOWING WAS JUST A COPY-PASTE FORMULA ADDING A FEW “NEW” FEATURES & HARDLY NOTICIBLE BETTER GRAPHICS. LOOK WHAT HAPPENED WHEN RARE RECREATED DONKEY KONG, IT BECAME A MUCH MORE POPULAR SELLING FRANCHISE THAN THAT OTHER GARBAGE KING KONG RIP-OFF VERSION. WHAT’S FUNNY IS U GOT SO BUTTHURT WHEN THE TIE WEARING APE TOOK OVER UR GARBAGE VERSION. U SPENT YEARS CRYING AND BITCHING. WHAT A SHIT LOAD OF FUCK. DONT BE SUCH A SORE LOSER LOL. ITS A SHAME FOR A MAN UR AGE TO BE THROWING A TANTRUM LIKE A 3 YR OLD… THEN AGAIN UR FANTARDS ARENT ANY BETTER… :/ I BET THE 1ST THING THEY’LL DO IS THROW A TANTRUM OVER MY HARD COLD EPIC PWNAGE FACTS. MEH GUESS BIRDS OF A FEATHER FLOCK TOGETHER. WHAT CAN U EXPECT FROM SHEEPLE WHEN THEIR SHEPARD IS ALSO CRYBABY?

      1. “A few new features and hardly noticeable better graphics” Sounds a little like the CoD series. “Throw a tantrum over my hard cold epic pwnage facts.” It seems as if you’re the only person writing in big letters, Sir Dumbass. Lastly, according to the average life expectancy, he should be able to live at least ten more years to live. Bye!

    1. I personally don’t like people I don’t know in any of my friend’s lists for anything, and I think the same goes for many other people.
      Try finding a 3DS friend code web site instead of advertising here, I’m sure you can find one.

      1. Yeah I agree. What’s the point of adding strangers to your friends list unless they’re your friend…? If I wanted to play a game with complete strangers, I would use the normal online mode. As for a friend code sharing website, http://www.passid.ca is a great one.

      MARIO 3D WAS BY FAR THE WORST OF THEM I PLAYED. SMALL TIGHT ENVIRONMENT. BORING MUSIC. NO CREATIVE STORYLINE JUST THE SAME OLD SAME OLD REGURGITATED VOMIT. MARIO 3 GBA PUTS THAT PEICE OF GARBAGE TO SHAME. SPEAKING OF GARBAGE THATS WHERE MY GAME WENT. NO REGRETS.

      I CANT WAIT FOR THIS! ITLL BE A BREATH OF FRESH AIR FROM ALL THE SHIT PILE :)

        1. Hate to say it, but he’s kind of right. I know Mario is Gameplay>Plot, but i think that they need stronger plots. Galaxy 1 struck that balance perfectly. It had the traditional rescue the Princess plot, but there was more at stake, the toads that got encased in crystals at the beginning, the galaxy Bowser wanted to create, and of course the amazing subplot that was the storybook. They should do another Mario like THAT. Galaxy 2 was better gameplay wise, but the plot of the first absolutely blows Galaxy 2, and any Mario platformer out of the water in that
          aspect. What they should do is make a Mario with the progression of 3D Land, the plot of the first Galaxy, and the exploration of SM64. Would that not be the perfect Mario game?

  2. I know he’ll do something great! How about a RPG? Something with a really unique battle system!

    1. Its most likely going to be something to compete against first person shooter or RPG of course, PS has SOCOM, Microshit has Gears of Pussies. Nintendo has a new aim to have Core gamers in their systems. Hopefully it will have the best story line that the rest of the competition including better than COD, Battlefield both are rip off pussies when it comes DLC.

  3. Curious to see what this originality will turn out to be. Classics don’t happen overnight, and still rely on the recurring themes to make them successful. The Legend of Zelda, starting with the Ocarina of Time, created five hugely successful console games all without changing the basic “Zelda” formula.

    Pikmin was an “original,” but does that really come to mind when we think of Miyamoto?

    As much as I understand that creating a new hit is probably what Nintendo needs, I hope this doesn’t mean they’re moving away from what they know already works. Personally I would like to see an RPG that maybe takes what they’ve learned from the Mario/Zelda series and gives it some fresh energy.

  4. I vaguely recall Miyamoto saying he could have made Halo in one of his interviews (not that I think very highly of the Halo series… the word “contrived” comes first and foremost to mind) but maybe it’s time Miyamoto took on a more western aesthetic in his next franchise, whether it’s an FPS or and RPG.

            But you have to remember, it’s a new game, not a remake so it’s not supposed to have the same name.

  7. Oh yeah so excited for this!!! I always wondered if Miyamoto still had it in him. We need more original games like the abundance in the 80’s. Hopefully this will be an RPG series because I would love to see him create one (I consider the Legend of Zelda to be an action-adventure series).

    1. With exception of Link’s Adventure, most of the Zelda games registered as action-adventure in Japan. Genre of the games will be printed out at the back cover.

  8. Oh I smell opportunity! ^^ Well lets not was precious development time on DLC or RPG’s for one, Tekken 3d Prime Edition is gonna destroy the market, its science my dear friends. But if your thinking about something new, try so some thing like an Action, fighting game NOW HEAR ME OUT!. I know some people are getting overwhelmed by fighters, but now’a days you cant make a good game unless it has an online feature. So keep that in mind, but Nintendo should work on the friend list like let you write more and have a messenger app that lets talk to others and have group chats, oh and a “Add friend” feature kinda like ps3, basically ,make the 3ds more Social, or is that to much to ask? Someone back me up?
