Miyamoto-san Wants to Create New Video Franchises over Remakes

The Legend of Zelda The Windwaker is being completely remade in HD for the Wii U, will Nintendo follow suit and bring more remakes to the system? Find out what Miyamot0-san had to say in an interview below.

In an interview with GameSpot, they asked Miyamoto-san whether Nintendo is planning on bringing more classic GameCube or Wii  games to the Wii U. Miyamoto-san said while he can’t talk about all the games Nintendo is bringing to table, he is interested in bringing new games to the system, over remakes.

On top of Luigi’s Mansion and Pkimin 3, Wind Waker for the Wii U is supplementing that lineup. Is Nintendo considering giving Wii U treatment to any other games, potentially older games like Metroid Prime?

Of course I can only talk about the titles we’ve announced publicly. We are thinking about the possibilities around that, but there’s nothing I can share today. I guess I can say from my perspective, I’m more interested in creating new titles.

    Oh yeah, remakes are fine(Wind Waker HD), but i'd much rather see Miyamoto make NEW titles, espeacially for Metroid. Another Retro-made Metroid Prime would an instant System Seller for me. 😛

        Congrats! I hope one of these days I get to go there live as a developer. Are you going to film it live through ustream, livestream or youtube?

    Nice. I guess this means that Miyamoto's mind is still as creative as always.

    • Furious Francis

      Yup, Miyamoto is supposed to show a new game at E3 this year, so look out for that!
