Miyamoto searching for Nintendo's next 'big hit'

A new major hit is 'the solution' to Nintendo's recent shortfalls

Legendary Mario creator Shigeru Miyamoto has said he's actively working to create Nintendo's next 'big hit' new franchise.


"I am spending more time than before on finding new ideas for new developments rather than focusing my energy on work in my (development) teams in order to solidify the contents of (existing) franchise titles," he said during the firm's recent financial briefing.

"After all, developing big hit titles must be the solution" he said, in light of the recent losses reported by the company.

"I am acting with the understanding that one big hit title can change multiple phases of a situation in the entertainment business, and I feel that finding such one big hit is my basic job," Miyamoto added.

Do you want a new franchise from Miyamoto, or would you rather him dedicate his time to sequels in his trusted and long-running IPs?
