Wii Sports Resort

It's well known that Nintendo designer Shigeru Miyamoto isn't someone who rushes. Miyamoto's famous for cancelling, rebooting and delaying projects until they've become something he's proud of. The follow-up to Wii Sports, the game that launched Wii's unexpected popularity, was not decided overnight, Miyamoto revealed during a post-E3 chat with game journalists.

Miyamoto and his team at Nintendo performed a number of design experiments related to different sports that could possibly work on the Wii. He mentioned two ideas Nintendo eventually decided against: Wii Motor Sports and Wii Leisure Sports. Miyamoto did not elaborate on what became of those prototypes, however.

And while Wii Sports Resort comes with a number of improvements over the original -- Miyamoto was disappointed Wii Sports didn't include a way to really improve your skills within the game -- he doesn't consider it a sequel. Neither is Wii Fit Plus. Miyamoto didn't slap a "2" on them for a reason, he said.

It's not like Miyamoto doesn't believe in direct sequels, though; Nintendo announced development of Super Mario Galaxy 2 during their press conference.
