Miyamoto Says He Is Busy With His New IP

miyamoto_luigi_new_york

Niels Hooft recently had the opportunity to sit down with legendary video game designer Shigeru Miyamoto to talk about Pikmin 3. While discussing Pikmin 3, Miyamoto reiterated that he is currently extremely busy with his new IP which he has been working on for quite some time. He wouldn’t discuss details, but he did say that the mystery project is actually getting busier lately. Hopefully, we won’t have to wait too long to see what it is he is working on.

If I’m not mistaken, Pikmin was the last time you worked on a truly new adventure type game. Don’t you miss this?
“I happen to be working on a completely new game even now. The project is actually getting busier lately.”

Thanks, Mike S

  1. His Lord ship has been working on this like forever, I hope it blows away our minds once it is revelaed and gain us total Nintendomination once again!

              1. Just one Hunter, please. One beautifully isolated Hunter.

                The others ham up the atmosphere and make it too X-Men feeling. Doesn’t jive with Metroid.

      1. I’m enjoying one of his current ones , the wonderfull world of Pikmin! Absolutely fucking amazing Pikmin 3 so far , I got it today ^_^

        Just wow all around. I love failing at a day and then retrying it and doing it all right :)

        1. I’m glad you like it! I can’t wait to get Pikmin 3 when I come back from Europe.

          Btw: Dat avatar, hilariously awesome xD.

          1. Where abouts in Europe are you man ?

            England is some HOT SHIT right now. My family canceled a holiday and moved it later to the year cus the weather is so good this summer.

            1. I’m going to France to visit some family members.

              lol, Is the weather that great! That makes me more excited :)

              1. Yeah, the weather has been like 30 degrees C everyday for like a month now (except about 3-4 cloudy/rainy/humid days)

                    1. I can’t stand more than 18 degrees celcius…

                      But minus 18 degrees that’s just lovely…

                1. I wish my 1600km long country shared the same weather as our eastern islands right now…

                  Small tornados, skyfall and floods…

        2. Excellent!

          You honor us all, I can’t wait to the day I get my hands on it aswell as every other game High Command will have for us!

      1. Unfortunately even Commanders don’t know as this has been top secret classified to everyone except High Command itself…

    1. it will be saved for a Nintendo direct.

      You should know Nintendo doesn’t like to reveal anything until it comes up close to release.

  2. Step back people. Make room for the genius. You cannot be allowed to compromise the feng shui of his imagination with your pathetic internet banter.

  3. The last time he said he’s bringing out a new IP, it was Wii Music.
    I’m lowering my expectations, but who knows?

    1. Yeah, it’s bad that we have that to worry about.

      If someone said “Platinum Gamss is making a new IP”, or Grasshopper Manufacture, or From Software, then you’d instantly know that it would be amazing. But there’s always that “what if” with Nintendo -.-
      I just hope its actually a core game, he’s talked about even making a shooter before, that would be amazing.

          1. And where did I imply Pikmin was new franchise hence the fact that I have 1 and 2 for the Gamecube boxed and mint :P

              1. Probably because there isn’t enough gravy for ya. I wondering how much cahs I need to import Mario Kart arcade oversea?

                  1. Yea me and Simply G ride on the groovy gravy train to work everyday. That is how I met him too. We goes all the way back then. We found out that we both love gravy so much too and it is very simple to make too.

                    That is how Simply G got his name. It is “Simply Gravy” but he thought “Simply G” was cooler though. I thought I was Super and I like gravy too.

    2. After that mistake, I’m sure the legend himself won’t repeat it again. I’m pretty damn certain its an actual game we can actually enjoy and not another damn cheap simulation that appeals no one.

    1. They are called Pikmin 3, SM3DW, Bayonetta 2, Mario Kart 8 and so on…

      So there are plenty of games that will make the Wii U possibly the second best Nintendo Console ever made…

        1. Hello Mr.erich80…

          I was talking about sales wise…

          But if I have to choose one…

          I’m tied between N64 and Gamecube because they both contain my favorite games I’ve ever played…

          Metroid Prime/Echoes
          Majora’s Mask
          Perfect Dark
          Resident Evil 4

              1. God damn. I say something nice and I get THIS kind of reply?

                I’ll just stick to being an asshole so at least I have it coming.

            1. That’s nice, there are ofcourse many more but those 4 are on my all time top 5 list…

              The 5th being Starcraft…

          1. Have you ever played Eternal Darkness? Add that to your list, maybe Oot, and you have the best damn game list!

            1. I never had the chance of buying ED unfortunately but I did test it and it was good…

              OoT is a very good game but it has way too easy bosses which brings the enjoyment factor down for me…

              MM was like the opposite of OoT in that regard the first time…

              1. The Legend of Zelda:A Link to the Past, Super Mario 64, Super Mario Brothers 3, Super Smash Brothers Melee are my 4.

                1. Great list, Super Smash Brothers Melee is an excellent game indeed…

                  However I prefer Brawl just a tiny bit better because of Lucas and the Story mode…

                  But Melee had the best Events…

          2. N64 and Gamecube for me also. Maybe because I started out with N64 and matured into the Gamecube. I mean I had a SNES but I was a kid at the time like 3-6 years old…

            Yeh, the N64 and the Gamecube are my two favorite Nintendo consoles, I have a feeling in time that the Wiiu is going to join them. It’s the best hardware, the Gamepad with its off tv play and dual screen potential is shiznit.

            1. N64? well then you did not participate in the Ancient War between our Empire and the Segans?…

              I have been around since Game&Watch was at the top of its game…

              I’m so ancient…

              1. I’m 22. My first memories 2-3 years old my broter had a NES and a Master system and then a Megadrive and a SNES which I played a lot. By this stage the Master system and NES were in the attick unused…

                I have extremely fond and nostalgic memories of the SNES/Megadrive generation (Robocop , Echo the dolphin , Alladin , The lion King , Mario , etc etc) but shit got serious for me with N64. It was my first ever console (not my brothers) and I loved the shit out of it. Then by the time the Gamecube arrived I was old enough to trully appreciate and finish many games :)

                1. Oh so you were a part just not a real Drone yet…*wink*

                  I’m not much older than you though but I have been a gamer ever since I was 2 years old with the Game&Watch in my hands…

                  I never owned a NES or SNES myself as my best friend at the time had them and brought it over to my house like every other day to play together while I had Megadrive…

                  But when the Segans fell and Nintendo won the war, I commited myself to the supremacy of our Empire officially…

                  But Nintendo has always been my first console and will be my last…

                    1. Nothing, I will support them by buying Sonic for the Wii U but even if they made a return I am still loyal to Nintendo…

                      However I might even buy their console one day if they ever did that to get my old rushes again…

                      But they will never rival our Empire again…

              2. Maybe its just me but I’m old fashion. Youngest memories was me playing the Super Mario Bros. on the NES, Star Tropics, Chip n’ Dale Rescue Rangers, spy hunter, and some others I can’t remember. Apparently I was told that I got the high score on Astroids in a dentist office when I was 1 to 2 years old but I don’t remember such a feat so I don’t think it happened. Out of all mario games even to this day, top number one is Super Mario World.

            2. I notice Nintendo fans of different ages tend to have pretty different taste, or at least their tops. I was 4 when I got an NES in 88 and got a SNES christmas 91 so a lot of my favorites are from that era. Oh I forgot, add Diddy’s Kong Quest to that list. Kind of kool that Nintendo can appeal to different generations in different ways and imprint a huge mark in life and childhood in fresh ways with the same characters.

      1. Nintendo Commander, I can’t think of SM3DW being one of them its not the 3D game we wanted, I’m not saying we galaxy (i love the series, but lets face it, it needs a break) just a sequal to SM64 when will Nintendo have the guts to make a proper sequel, and if people complain ‘oh what about sunshine, that game was not a sequal it was its own franchise, bottom line, should we get SMG3D on 3ds ill go ape

        1. Well similar things were said about NSMB2 on the 3DS and it’s still selling good despite being “the same” as the other 2…

          NSMBU sold fair aswell the first weeks…

          I have no doubt that this game will sell good the first 2 months anyway…

  4. I really want to see it, hooefully a trailer by the end of they year would be cool, same with the new Zelda.

      1. Well we know they could’ve shown Zelda at E3 so that’s on the card to be shown at any given time, but as for his new IP, he’s been on it for at least 6 months to a year, so it must be someway through.

  5. These days, with all the stress and pressure, there going to burn this guy out. Nintendo games are so fucking good because Nintendo has developers that make games for the sake of gamers having fun, and as such, the Devs have fun making them.

    With all the pressure, I fear game development is becoming more work and less fun, and if they don’t have fun making it, it will be less fun playing it. (same principle as adding “love” to cookies)

    So the top brass better give this man some space!!

  6. Wii U gets better every minute. This new game is for Wii U right? I mean thats what it needs, 3DS like all the N handhelds is fine, but they need to push this system themselfs like in Gamecube era.

    1. By next week you’ll forget he’s working on a new IP anyway. Let alone will you remeber to laugh if it turns out to be a party game and ignoring Mario party and Wii Party U games.

  7. With his retirement on the way, and the fact he’s been working on this new IP for quite a while…let’s hope that it’ll make him go out with a bang.
    I hope that reason why Mario has been stagnating in recent years is precisely because most of his focus and effort went on that brand new game.

  8. The man that saved the whole video game industry. Brought us Super Mario bros. Zelda, Donkey Kong and Metroid. He can be making Tinker Bell adventures I will preorder that drm free game anyday.

      1. Nintendo Commander we have actually disagreed for once I like that. 97% of all female gamers are nintendo gamers. The ones that are not try to appeal to their boyfriends. So I support our female compatriots.

        1. I think they play basically more than 80% of all games the males play on Nintendo…

          Zelda, Metroid, Mario, Pokemon, Nintendogs, Smash Brothers etc etc are all played by both male and female Nintendo Drones…

          They also share many characteristics in online games I do…

          Miss.Scott, what is your opinion on this?…

    1. yes, a FPS super smash bros. with blood spurting out every characters nose whenever they are splashed by Mario’s FLUDD.

      1. I kinda hoping princesses save the plumbers instead. Why Bowser kidnap Princess Peach? Seriously why just her? I think Bowser have a major crush!

        1. Yes. If you knew your facts, you would know that the chances of video games being this popular without Miyamoto are much less likely.

            1. You took my words too seriously. I didn’t literally mean that if Miyamoto didn’t exist, there would be a 100% chance that video games would not.

            2. What he trying to say is that we be missing out of amazing games if weren’t for him to created Zelda or other series.

  9. I want this hype to really be legit. Some of the hype they created lately are not what we were expecting like Game Freak’s new game other than Pokemon and Donkey Kong instead of Metroid.

  10. I’d be quite shocked if they don’t reveal it at E3 2014; and for that reason, I have a feeling this game is at least a year away.

  11. I just hope that whatever it is he’s working on is as charming and addictive as Pikmin. And not something boring like Metroid (no offense, Metroid fans. I just don’t like it). Sure would be cool if it was something similar to Earthbound. *drools*

  12. If you google “Wii U” and click “news” you’ll see tons of articles of that european store no longer selling Wii U, ignoring that Pikmin 3 games are hot, ignoring that other retailers such as Game Stop, ToysRus, Best Buy, Walmart, and Kmart also sells Wii Us. Also ignoring the heavy hitters coming in week to week, at journalist wants to play dumb acting like Wii U is dumbed…..just like A who beats his meat Anonymous.

  13. I really hope it is an action first person shooter with some adventure but not too much and a deeply engrossing, addictive gameplay and interesting characters and plot.

  14. I think Nintendo is done with the Wii “something” games now. There isn’t much shovelware on the Wii U right now and I think Nintendo is trying to step away from the casual stuff they made last gen. You can kind of see them using the 3DS install base to the Wii U’s advantage! SM3DW looks like 3D Land and the kids and all those people who got a 3DS for 3D Land might get a Wii U for 3D World! Same thing with DKCTF! People who bought a 3DS for DKCR3D might get a Wii U for DKCTF! It’s like they’re building the same 3DS install base.

  15. he’s going to turn the industry on it’s head, and make a first person shooter where YOU are the Russian! :)

  16. PLEASE MIYAMOTO, NO FIRST PERSON SHOOTERS (or first-person ANYTHING).
    P L E A S E ! NOOOOOOOO!!!!!!! Those are the most horrible genre of games in existence.

    1. Maybe but if he can re-invent this genre then I’ll be glad to see it be done…

      Metroid Prime was a new experience from that genre as it was a completely different experience…
