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.”
