Miyamoto working on new, original game

In new interview, Mario creator reveals he's at work on an "undisclosed original title."


Legendary Nintendo game designer Shigeru Miyamoto was the center of much attention recently, as speculation about his retirement ran wild following an interview with Wired last month. Nintendo countered by stressing Miyamoto was not retiring, and now it's clear he's not only staying with the company, but also working on an original game.

Miyamoto recently gave an interview to the Associated Press (as spotted by Zoomin Games), where it was revealed that in addition to a new Pikmin game for the Wii U and Luigi's Mansion 2 for the 3DS, Miyamoto is at work on a new property. Zoomin refers to this project as an "undisclosed original title."

Explaining his development mentality (but not revealing anything about the new game), Miyamoto said, "People have come to expect a lot from me. This certainly makes me feel some pressure. But if you ask me, 'Is it too much pressure to come out with something new?' I have to say no, I'm enjoying myself. But when I make something, I always try to do my best."
