Miyamoto Still Believes Wii U Is Revolutionary

Legendary games designer Shigeru Miyamoto says that the company will continue creating innovative dedicated gaming machines. During his interview with EDGE magazine Miyamoto also said that he still believes that the Wii U is both unprecedented and revolutionary.

“Of course we had some concerns. After all, we’re human beings: our eyes cannot see two objects at the same time. But we were sure that, even with that kind of, say, weak point, we would be able to make something unprecedented and revolutionary.”

“We want to create, and they want to experience, something unprecedented all the time. For us to meet these goals, we need dedicated hardware that is designed to cater to the needs of these avid gamers. People might say that software is software. No. A unique software experience can always be realized with unique hardware that has a unique interface. That is why I believe Nintendo is, and will be, sticking to these dedicated gaming machines.”

News has already started to come out of the latest edition of EDGE magazine which features Shigeru Miyamoto. Shinya Takahashi revealed in the magazine that the map for Xenoblade Chronicles X on Wii U will be roughly five times bigger than than the one found in Xenoblade Chronicles on the original Wii.

“Vehicles are called Dolls. They are 5 Times larger than a person. So to get the same feel as Xenoblade Chronicles, the map would need to be 5 times bigger. The game world in X is e in fact even bigger than that.”

Operation Platinum Is Aiming To Get Bayonetta 2 To Sell One Million Copies On Wii U

A fan made movement is currently in the works and it’s called Operation Platinum. The social movement is calling for Nintendo fans to purchase Bayonetta 2 on Wii U and help the game shift over one million copies. Of course some people will see this as Nintendo’s job, but that hasn’t stopped fans being vocal about it. The movement is a direct response to third-party publishers that say Nintendo fans don’t purchase their games and the console isn’t worth supporting.

Thanks to everyone who sent this in.
