Nintendo is working on both traditional and brand-new games for Wii U. If he had to choose, legendary designer Shigeru Miyamoto’s top two franchises that he wants on Wii U are Metroid and Star Fox. Miyamoto “feels like the possibilities of the GamePad for Metroid could be really fantastic.” Miyamoto didn’t confirm whether these games are in development but revealed that, out of all Nintendo franchises, he “personally” wants the Star Fox franchise most on Wii U.
“With Metroid it’s very easy to imagine some interesting implementation for Wii U. I think that having another screen with the gyro built in really gives you a lot of interesting opportunities for development, and we can bring a lot of our games to life in a completely unique way with that.”
“I feel like the possibilities of the GamePad for Metroid could be really fantastic,” Miyamoto told me at a different point in our conversation. “There’s certainly a lot that you could do there for that game.”
