Miyamoto Wants to Make A Shooter
Shigeru Miyamoto, best known for Mario and Zelda, is interested in making a first person shooter.
“I actually do kind of want to make a first-person shooter, but I don’t have time,” the legendary game designer told Kotaku.
Unsurprisingly Miyamoto’s vision isn’t exactly Battlefield or Call of Duty.
“Rather than necessarily the question of ‘What kind of weapon do I have?’ in a first person shooter or ‘What kind of effect does that have on an enemy?’, I think that the structure of a first-person shooter is something that’s very interesting,” he added.
“Having that 3D space that in theory you are in and being able to look around and explore that-particularly being able to do that in conjunction with another person-is very interesting.”
Miyamoto also argued that using the Wii U’s GamePad would make for a compelling experience in a shooter: “Obviously that would be very fun,” he said. “If you have two people doing that in the same room, that could create a very fun and unique gameplay experience.”
While he showed off Pikman 3 at E3 Miyamoto does in fact have some experience with shooters. The industry veteran oversaw production of Metroid Prime which was a collaboration with Retro Studios.
