We’d be fine without it, all the same
In a recent appearance on Smosh Games (interview starts at 4:35), Nintendo’s Shigeru Miyamoto touched on a range of topics, including the future of F-Zero and Pikmin.
The famed designer gave a concise update on the latter series — “We will continue to make Pikmin games,” he said through translator Bill Trinen — but as for F-Zero, well, it’s complicated:
“We see a lot of other designers who are kind of making more traditional racing style of games,” he began. “So, we’ve tried to focus on something that feels a little bit more game-y. So, maybe if we create a new type of controller interface, and we find a controller interface that’s particularly suited for F-Zero, then maybe we’ll do something with it in the future.”
Oh, Miyamoto. Always trying to surprise and delight.
