IGN has scored an interview with legendary Nintendo developer, Shigeru Miyamoto in which he talks about the Revolution, the future of the DS, Mario 128 and Metroid Prime 3.
Miyamoto is adored by his fans and admirers like no other. IGN describe one female fan sobbing helplessly after Miyamoto agreed to have his picture taken with her. I’ve heard of this type of thing happening when fans meet musicians but never games developers.
IGNcube: Speaking about Revolution, we have many questions. At a trade show like E3, it seems that perception is so important. You say that it’s not the time to reveal Revolution in full. But with major showings from Microsoft’s and Sony’s next-generation consoles, do you feel that it hurts Nintendo to remain quiet? That people may incorrectly assume that Nintendo is quiet because it isn’t prepared to compete with or lags behind its competition?
Shigeru Miyamoto: You know, I didn’t get a chance to see the Sony and Microsoft presentations for myself, but from what I’ve heard from people it sounds like they are going to be using cutting-edge technology, as are we. However, the way that they are planning on implementing that technology is obviously very different from the route that we’re going to be taking. On the business side of things I see where we’re going and I see where they’re going and I’m not worried at all. I don’t think it’s going to influence us at all. We’re good to go.
