Miyamoto: 2010 Will Be Great For Hardcore Nintendo Fans

Mario Galaxy 2, Metroid and Zelda should keep everyone happy

The Wii may be getting a little long in the tooth now but that hasn't stopped Shigeru Miyamoto from commenting that 2010 is likely to be one of the best years yet for the format.

Speaking to UK site CVG, the highly-respected games designer references several key titles, including the new Wii Zelda and Pikmin - although they may not feature this year.

This year's going to be really great for the hardcore Nintendo player, especially with Super Mario Galaxy 2. It's action-packed software and when I say action-packed software, it's not just going to show you [pre-set] action movements in the 3D format. Rather, this is action-packed software that you can manipulate with your own will and your own control.

I really want many households to be able to have a hands-on experience of Mario Galaxy 2. [Elsewhere] I didn't have any involvement in Metroid Other M, but it is on its way. And also we are working on the New Legend Of Zelda for Wii. So from this year to the next, I hope that the hardcore-type gamers are really looking forward to the multiple Nintendo titles on Wii. And also, we are working on the [new] Pikmin.
