Shigeru Miyamoto, Nintendo’s legendary creative ringleader, recently sat down with GameSpot’s Giancarlo Varinini for an interview. After being asked if he plans to give any other games the Wii U treatment like Nintendo is planning for The Wind Waker HD, Miyamoto-san avoided the direct question, but revealed that he actually prefers developing new titles to remaking old games.
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. — Shigeru Miyamoto
It’s interesting to see him say this, after expressing interest in remaking A Link to the Past for Nintendo 3DS alongside the recent 3DS remakes of Ocarina of Time and Star Fox 64. On the other hand, though, it’s not entirely unsurprising that creating fresh games is more enjoyable than simply redoing something.
