Miyamoto Teases New Franchise For 2014


Nintendo’s senior managing director, Shigeru Miyamoto, reveals in the latest issue of Famitsu magazine that he’s been busy at work on helping create a new franchise.


“We’ll have Mario Kart 8 out next spring, and at that point we’ll have the whole lineup in place, so I think it’s about time we brought out a new franchise,” Miyamoto shared, according to a Polygon report of Famitsu’s interview. “I can’t give out details, but that’s the title that’s been keeping me pretty busy lately.”


While that makes it sound like a Wii U game, Miyamoto didn’t explicitly state whether the new game would be for Nintendo 3DS or Wii U.
