Miyamoto wants Mario platformer for 3DS

Nintendo legend says he's adding new features into remakes

Nintendo development legend Shigeru Miyamoto has told us that he's keen to remake a Mario platformer for 3DS - following the announcement of 73 new titles for the system.

We got hands-on with a demo of a remake of Ocarina Of Time earlier.

Speaking in Los Angeles at E3 today, Miyamoto-san said: "Some of you saw an R-wing flying today in the [E3] video. With the StarFox games being a shooting genre, particularly in the 3D space, it's hard to know when you're going to hit... all of that becomes very clear in full 3D. As soon as we started work on [3DS], I said I wanted to make a StarFox game. Particularly with a touch screen as well."

He added: "If you play something like Mario, even jumping onto a stump or hitting a question mark in the air can be very difficult for people - unless you have full 3D visuals to go with that full rendered world, then it becomes clear. We've been looking at what we can do with past games like these."

However, Miyamoto promised that he wouldn't just take simple ports of classic Nintendo games - and promised plenty of new products, too.

"If all we wanted to do is port [the old games], we'd have the same games," he said. "We've been looking to improve them, and add new features. We're having a lot of fun."
