Eurogamer reports today on a new interview with Nintendo’s legendary Shigeru Miyamoto on website Zoom.in, during which he confirms that he is working on a new “original” game for Wii U, as well as other fan favourites such as Pikmin 3.
During the interview, Miyamoto also denied recent a recent story on Wired that hinted that he might be about to retire.“People have come to expect a lot from me,” the creator of Mario and Zelda told Zoom.in. “This certainly makes me feel some pressure. But if you ask me, ‘Is it too much pressure to try to come out with something new?’ I have to say no, I’m enjoying myself. When I make something, I always try to do my best.”
Phew, so we can expect many more years of amazing games then!“I really appreciate all the kindness given the kind of comments that I made. But to be clear, I have no intention to retire at all. I’m not old enough to think about retirement right now. But everyone has to retire at some point. I wanted to make clear that we are preparing for that.”
