Da Neogaf un breve riassunto sull'intervista a miyamoto apparsa sul sito francese gamekult.
It's in French:
- About FZero, he's surprised players want more of this series.
Gamekult: After a quick survey on Twitter, one of the game French gamers miss the most is F Zero. Nobody really understands why Nintendo hasn't made a new one since 2004. Is there a chance we can see it back on Wii U?
Miyamoto: :eyes open wide: I am really pleased to hear Twitter's opinion, because since the first episode on SNES many games have been made but the series has little evolved.
I thought people had grown weary of it. I'd like to say: Thank you very much and try to wait by playing Nintendoland's FZero minigame.
I am also very curious and I'd like to ask those people: Why FZero? What do you want that we haven't done before?
- Link sprite was designed by Takashi Tezuka. Like Mario, they wanted a character that would be recognizable from his sword and shield so they thought of a long hat and long ears and went into the direction of an elf. At the time, when you said long ears you thought of Peter Pan and as he's a Disney fan, they drew inspiration from it.
Link's name come from the fact that originally, the fragments of the Triforce were supposed to be electronic chips. The game was to be set in both the past and the future and as the main character would travel between both and be the link between them, they called him Link.
- Not a confirmation or anything but here's what he answered to the question: what do you see for the Metroid franchise on Wii U: something like Metroid Prime, Metroid Other M or a third way?
Since Wii U is a HD console with more hardware power, what we can naturally think about is a beautiful HD action game (Huge smile, meaning he won't say more).
Insomma pare che il Miya non veda la necessità di realizzare un nuovo F-zero, sembra che il brand non abbia più nulla da dire secondo lui.
Eppure il solo editor di mappe e veicoli tramite touchscreen basterebbe a giustificare la presenza del brand su WiiU imho...
Ho paura che si tratti solo di una questione di vendite, non si faranno problemi a fare l'ennesimo mario kart.
