Legendary games designer Shigeru Miyamoto was recently asked by The New York Times what he was most excited about with regards to video game development. Miyamoto replied that online is something that he feels opens up a tremendous amount of possibilities. Despite the lack of online functionality for Nintendo Land and New Super Mario Bros U, it appears as though Nintendo might be ready to embrace online after all.
“For a long time at Nintendo we didn’t focus as much on online play because for many years doing so would have limited the size of the audience that could enjoy those features. But certainly now we see that so many people are connected to the Internet. It opens up a tremendous amount of possibilities.”
