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."
