Shigeru Miyamoto, the most senior game developer of Nintendo and creator of the Mario, Donkey Kong, Pikmin, Zelda and Star Fox franchises, has recently stated in an interview with GamesTM that “the best is yet to come”. Speaking about the evolution games have gone through in the last decade, Miyamoto explained that he would not have been able to imagine ten years ago that he would be working on the titles that have kept him occupied for the last five years. With this statement, Miyamoto refered to his work on titles such as Wii Fit Plus and Wii Sports Resort. Based on the speed with which developments impact the industry, Miyamoto is convinced that the best has yet to come.
While the Nintendo frontman did not specifically address the topic of HD-capable Wii, he did state that Nintendo, as well as other organizations, will continue to integrate new technology into their products as these technologies evolve. He was not able to elaborate on whether the next Nintendo console would in fact be an updated Wii with HD-capability, a full next-generation successor to the Wii, or something completely different all together.
In response to a question concerning a new installment in the Star Fox-series, Miyamoto replied that he would like to see such a game. Over the past year, rumors concerning a new possible installment in the series that originated in 1993 have become more frequent.
