In a recent interview Shigeru Miyamoto explained that the company hasn’t ruled out returning to the critically acclaimed Super Mario Galaxy series sometime in the future. Miyamoto said that with the forthcoming Super Mario 3D World the Kyoto based company weren’t directly trying to define the future of Mario titles. However, he did say that in the future his team may create another game in the vein of the beloved Super Mario Galaxy.
“We did not set out trying to define the future of Mario action games with this title,” Miyamoto said about Super Mario 3D World. “Rather, we’re just trying to find some fun new elements that we can incorporate. So for example, I certainly wouldn’t rule out the possibility of us creating more games in the vein of Super Mario Galaxy, for example. What we’re trying to accomplish here, is just to create a really good entry point for new players into the Super Mario 3D games.”
