But he doesn't have the time...
That's right, the creator of Mario and Zelda wants to make a First-Person Shooter, however, he says he doesn't have the time.
In an interview with Kotaku, Mario, Zelda, and Donkey Kong creator Shigeru Miyamoto has expressed interest in developing a first-person shooter.
Please give him some time?“I actually do kind of want to make a first-person shooter, but I don’t have time,” he told Kotaku.
“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. 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.
Also, he said that Nintendo highlighted the two GamePad usage at the E3 conference because it was "important to gamers". And, he seems pretty interested on making a co-op game using two Wii U GamePads.
Currently he is working on Wii U’s Pikmin 3."I don't think we're ever going to be at a point where we'll say it will support four GamePads, but two gamepads is something people wanted," he said.
I wanted his take on the relevance of two GamePads tied to one Wii U game. His fresh answer: "Well, if you're playing a first-person shooter and you have the game up on the television screen and you have your subscreen below [in the GamePad controller],within that game world you're able to turn in all directions around you."
Miyamoto continued about his idea of an FPS in which the player views their game world through the screen on the GamePad: "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." Ergo, two GamePads are useful. And also, ergo, that's the kind of FPS he'd have a good time making.
