Nintendo’s Shigeru Miyamoto was in attendance at a recent Super Mario Run event held at the Apple Store. There, lots of questions were thrown Miyamoto’s way during an interview, including one that asked if there was any character he would like to have the chance to develop further. To this Miyamoto replied that he had always wanted Fox McCloud to achieve more popularity than he had and then continued, saying he would also like to work more on Pikmin. [Thanks, GamerSplash.]
Here’s Miyamoto’s full response to the question:
“Yeah, I always wanted Fox McCloud to be a bit more popular than he is. But I think one more would be Pikmin. So I think these two, I’ll need to put some more energy into.”
While it may be some time before we see a new Star Fox game, a new Pikmin title is already in the works for the Nintendo 3DS and will feature sidescrolling adventure gameplay.
