Shigeru Miyamoto E3 2009 Interview »

X-Play's Blair Herter had the honor of sitting down and chatting with Nintendo's legendary Shigeru Miyamoto during E3 2009. Among the topics discussed were:

  • Going four players with New Super Mario Bros.
  • Super Mario Galaxy 2
  • Integrating ideas from 2D development into a 3D game and vice versa
  • Introducing fresh ideas after decades of game development
  • The new Zelda game
  • Metroid: The Other M
  • His thoughts on Microsoft's and Sony's respective forays into motion controls

Regarding that last bullet point, Miyamoto said, "I think it's a testament that everyone has been able to see that when gamers are using their entire bodies to play in a physical nature, that they're having fun. It's just nice to see that everyone is recognizing that it's a fun style of gameplay for our audiences."

Be sure to watch the entire interview to get all the answers from one of the most brilliant developers in gaming history.
