Nintendo Wii 2: Shigeru Miyamoto Discusses Nintendo Wii 2 (Project Cafe) And Development

UK news publication The Telegraph recently received the opportunity to speak to legendary games developer Shigeru Miyamoto about the development of Nintendo next home console which is currently known as Project Cafe. Miyamoto obviously didn’t give too much information away but it’s an interesting read nonetheless.

“Even when the Wii launched, we were developing new hardware. The creation of devices is quite speedy nowadays, and we’re always working on new ideas.”

“There’s definitely space for uniqueness in a home console,” he continued. “As you know the Wii is family orientated, played in the living room of the household. We’re hoping to evolve that, there’s a variety of options we can think of. With the more advanced devices, game design is currently at a high level.”

“Nowadays I think it’s really important that designers are really unique and individual. It’s costly if you are focussing on similar ideas, so that uniqueness is important. You can get more budget for games, but your energy must be focussed, otherwise it won’t last. Don’t focus on how many stages it’s got. Tell me if you’ve seen it before. That’s the challenge for me.”

  1. Um…what if we WANT to have a game that we’ve seen before, Miyamoto? What about those that’d want more 2D Mario like NSMB Wii? Not every video game HAS to be unique, Mr. Miyamoto.

    Sadly, you don’t seem to realize this.
