A New F-Zero Would Require A New Controller Interface Says Miyamoto



As part of a discussion with YouTube channel Smosh Games, Nintendo’s Shigeru Miyamoto touched upon the possibility of the company working on another F-Zero racing game. Here’s what he had to say:


“I actually made F-Zero first, and then after we made F-Zero we made Mario Kart. But we see a lot of other designers who are kind of making more traditional racing style of games. So, we’ve tried to focus on something that feels a little bit more gamey. So, maybe if we create a new type of controller interface, and we find a controller interface that’s particularly suited for F-Zero, then maybe we’ll do something with it in the future.


“Actually, the lead designer on F-Zero who I worked with on the original is Mr. [Takaya] Imamura, and I worked together with him also on the original Star Fox games. So right now, the two of us are busy working on the next Star Fox game.”


Star Fox is currently in development for Wii U and will be released sometime in 2015.
