Legendary Nintendo developer Shigeru Miyamoto has stated that he hopes Nintendo’s much loved Star Fox and Metroid franchises will make their way onto Wii U. He thinks the Wii U GamePad could be greatly utilized for a Metroid title and also “personally” wants Star Fox to make an appearance on Nintendo’s next home console.
“With Metroid it’s very easy to imagine some interesting implementation for Wii U. I think that having another screen with the gyro built in really gives you a lot of interesting opportunities for development, and we can bring a lot of our games to life in a completely unique way with that.”
“I feel like the possibilities of the GamePad for Metroid could be really fantastic,” Miyamoto told me at a different point in our conversation. “There’s certainly a lot that you could do there for that game.”
