Shigeru Miyamoto Reconfirms That He’s Hard at Work on His New IP

We know Shigeru Miyamoto is working on a brand-new IP for Nintendo, but we don’t know if it’ll be an adventure-type game like Zelda or Pikmin or a less mainstream type of game like Wii Sports. According to a recent interview with Nielsthooft, however, he’s definitely deep in development – he even says development picked up steam recently – and based on his response to the question asked, he seems to suggest that it’s actually an adventure game.

Click below to evaluate his statement and let us know what you think.

The question definitely addresses a “new adventure type game,” citing Pikmin as Miyamoto’s last new IP in this realm. And Mr. Miyamoto doesn’t offer any mind-opening suggestion that it won’t follow in that vein – he just says he’s hard at work on the game, as if to acknowledge the desire for the type of game the interviewer describes. Sounds like a new Miyamoto adventure to me!

If I’m not mistaken, Pikmin was the last time you worked on a truly new adventure type game. Don’t you miss this?

I happen to be working on a completely new game even now. The project is actually getting busier lately.

Hm… Leave your thoughts in the comments!

    hoping for true action/adventure, not something like these games that try to pass themselves off as action adventure

    I’m guessing it will be a friend simulator where a virtual face appears on the gamepad. You have conversations using the microphone to keep you engaged and take your mind off the fact your Wii U has no games.

      These are currently all the wii u games out currently to date… 30 games. The wii u is less than a year old and it has 30 games out, which are more games than the ps3 and xbox 360 had a year into their life cycle: How is this “No games”?

        I personally don’t see any games that interest me that aren’t available on other consoles, but I still think the Wii U is a great system and will actually start using it in the future.

        • Matthew Wesley

          I only have a few of these games myself, but this sure as hell isn’t “no games”.

          • Ghabulous Ghoti

            I think he may have been referring more to “no exclusives that anyone cares about”, but now that Pikmin 3 is out, I guess there’s a game that SOME people care about.

            I personally am too picky for these exclusives, and the multiplats will work just fine on PC or PS3, so my Wii U has been collecting dust down in my basement, but I do await TWW HD and Smash Bros. 4, and may give Mario 3D World a chance.

            • Matthew Wesley

              And my point was that, whether you own any of these games or not, that this is hardly a lackluster lineup…. not to mention backwards compatibility. And come this fall and winter, the really good stuff is coming.

              • Ghabulous Ghoti

                And come even later, Smash Bros. 4 is coming. There is no way anyone could say a console that has Smash Bros. 4 has no games.

          The only thing the Wii U, for me, is good for is telling off trolls on Miiverse and playing LEGO City Undercover and the Zelda, Pikmin, and Metriod games on Nintendo Land.

    • Guesty pooh!

      The game is being made by one of the games industry’s best creators ever, I’m sure it will be good. Heck, even his worst is better than most of the crap that’s out there.

      Seriously though, what does it matter what console has what, I don’t regret buying my Wii U at all, if you enjoy playing games then who cares what machine it’s on.
      Enjoy playing games for what they are, not what machine they’re on.

    But will it be better than Gmae Freak’s solitaire horse racing game?

    • Erimgard

      Nothing beat’s horse solitaire. Not anything. Not ever.

  • K2L

    To wait and see.

    Sounds interesting…
