Miyamoto thinks F-Zero needs a 'new type of controller interface'


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.
