Aonuma Says He Wouldn’t Develop A Mario Game As He’s No Good At Them


Zelda producer Eiji Aonuma has explained that he wouldn’t dare develop a Super Mario title as he isn’t too good at Mario games. Kotaku asked Aonuma which Nintendo franchise he would love to be able to tackle next, to which Aonuma replied that it wouldn’t be the Super Mario series as he’s not particularly good at platformers. Aonuma concluded the interview by saying that it’s ultimately the Zelda franchise that he is into.

Kotaku: What Nintendo franchise would you want to tackle next?

Aonuma: It wouldn’t be Mario because I’m not any good at that type of jumping game.

Kotaku: There are different reflexes involved there. What about Pikmin? There’s some similarities there. There’s a lot of exploration and a focus on figuring out the gameworld.

Aonuma: When I look at Pikmin, I feel like it’s something that kind of comes out of a lot of the ideas for Zelda. I think that is what happened with in Mr. Miyamoto’s head. If I made a Pikmin game it might turn into a Zelda game. Zelda is the main thing I’m really interested in


      1. Fuck You That Has Nothing To Do With The Article, Get Out Of Here You Fan Boy Bitch!!!! WiiU Is The Best Around!!!

      2. actually they forgot the virtual boy which sold 750,000 thats the worst selling nintendo console

      3. Ok why are gameboy,ds other bits of data in there. Its clear ur trolling but u fail. virtual boy was both home and “portable”.

      4. The 3ds turned around :/

        The Vita is turning around

        If the flop of the PS3 could turn around, the Wii U definitely can

      5. Don’t even reply to him dude, in the end they a just consoles, does it make you magically better if one sells super well or doesn’t? And to those dumb asses that says Nintendo sucks they can’t sell are stupid I like to counter attack by saying Microsoft has basically no market share in the smartphone area and Sony has crap phones with bad outdated specs.

      1. Its A Hate Comment Toward First Comments, The Guy With The A Testicles For A Default Picture Is True A Disgusting Human Being And Should Be Ban For Life!!!!

      2. Normally I pride myself in the clean slits I make across the Fibrae your balls dangle. But you make me wanna test how much weight I can clamp onto them until they get ripped down forcefully via gravity. And then become nothing more than a sound of squish, as the weights I have applied, crush them on the concrete.

    1. 01100010011101010110110101110000.
      *Destroy all Nintendrones*
      *Target *
      Bieeeep Bieeeeeeeep

      1. I ment to say he isn’t great at mario game as much as he use to. He is a damn good designer

      2. He hasn’t made anything in while or truly worked on anything (pikmin 3 a bit)

      3. Ignoring Pikmin 3 and WWHD moved Wii U consoe while the other games didn’t. Exposed……wait never mind.

      4. LOL doc is the biggest Damage controller in YT Afer N-dub Nation.Nice try Dude ;)

      5. and your damage controlling the truth of your post and xbox…but this guy is right, you only see what you want to see…so yes it is a good try and proves your ass is hurt on the truth. Truth hurts.

      6. You know the funny thing is that even Lost World got positive reviews from some places but no one talks about them either. That video is spot on and really shows how lame the whole gaming community nowadays is. Its not about games anymore its just about pointless system wars etc. Actually i dont see much of point in owning an Ps4 or One cause i can built more powerful gamin pc for cheaper and have games running better on it, that is a fact that no one talks about either. Xbots and sony fanboys are blinded by their fav companies that they dont see the truth that gamin pc is better to own for gamin than ps4 and one, no one cares about their exclusives and i can plug in any kind of traditional controller on pc to get that experience except better. Now Nintendo brings good exclusives and something new to the table and everyone freaks out, because they know that its harder to replace, they actually feel threatened thats why you see so much Nintendo hate. Let me tell you Pc gamin will own both Ps and Xbox gamin soon theres a reason why sony sold one of their buildings and why ms investor wnats to get rid of xbox brand, those who really want that hifi gaming experience go to Pc and not for ps and xbox. WiiU+gaming Pc FTW!

    1. Can’t tell if you mean that as a bad thing but, Majora’s Mask, Wind Waker, Twilight Princess, and Skyward Sword. He’s doing just fine.

  1. Kid Icarus, Takamaru’s Ninja Castle, and Metriod. Are games I think he could pull off if he tried

  2. I think Aonuma & his team would make a pretty good Takamaru game.. They’re both similar I several ways; that said, I think it’d be awesome if Nintendo would be willing to collaborate with Platinum Games to giving life back to their Takamaru franchise *_* I think Platinum Games would be the best because they make fantastical action games, I mean Hideki made DMC. Maybe if Aonuma or even Miyamoto were to supervise them (as he did with Retro on Metroid, & Next Level games on Luigi’s Mansion) then it could maybe pretty please happen? :x

    1. Congratulations!!! your the 1 billionth troll to use baby/kiddy to describe something nintendo related!!! You’ve won a free trip to get a life!!! You’ll be join by Ben Sanders!!!!

      1. Dayum I struck a nerv at you nintenbabiez. Did you forgetz to change ur diperz ?? Don’t be mad dat Wii U suxz

      2. Dayum using da same old “go home ur drunk” joke. Get a new joke mayne don’t be madz dat Wii U Suxz

    2. Hey Fuck You Man, Aonuma Is The Best, Try Naming A Dev Who’s Been Giving Us Multiple Good Games For Years And Is Also Well Known…..Well Go A Head Bitch!!!!!

    3. Hey bitch. You looking at some nintendo news while you wait for your gay porn to finish loading cocksucker?

  3. It would be interesting if Aonuma designed an all-new RPG game, as some of you have stated. OR, Nintendo could buy the rights to Sphinx and the Cursed Mummy and create the looong overdue sequel. Okay, now I’m just dreaming. Sigh…

  4. that’s right. stay with the zelda series and continue to improve the franchise. nobody messes with my fav game series.

  5. Having heard this, the idea for a platformer Zelda has crossed my mind. It’d be a pretty interesting change of pace!

  6. PROBABLY ANOTHER SHOLVEWARE GAME WITH THE SAME STORY AND GAMEPLAY.Nintendo Sucks Hope Iwata,Reggie and Aonuma get cancer and DIE.
