The only thing that stops the dust is the rain. It’s a sweet reprieve, but there is no middle ground. The land is either as dry as the Betty Ford clinic, or as wet as the ocean floor. Everything can be seen from the ridge overlooking Armadillo as John Marston gently bounces along atop...

Miyamoto Stepping Away From Mario After 3D World

Posted on Monday, November 4 @ 04:54:11 PST by Alex_Osborn


It looks like Nintendo's legendary game designer Shigeru Miyamoto will be taking his hands off of theMariofranchise onceSuper Mario 3D Worldis out the door.

Speaking withGamekult, Miyamoto explained that while theItalian plumber is very near and dear to his heart, he'd like to pursue smaller projects going forward, and working withMariowould just eat up too much of his time.
Creating a Mario of 3D World's calibre demands enormous energy and there is little chance that I'd be able to take the time necessary to work on the next Mario. Instead, I want to get involved more heavily in the development of new, smaller-scale projects, but that doesn't necessarily mean just modest downloadable titles.

It's not impossible that I'll present a new game as principal creator in the future, but even though I'm not directly in charge of a project, I'm always keeping an eye on what the teams are doing in terms of gameplay and I have confidence in them.

Don't worry about Mario!


Do you think the younger minds at Nintendo are capable of carrying on the Mario franchise without Miyamoto's direct guidance? Where do you hope the franchise goes following the release ofSuper Mario 3D World? Be sure to comment below and let us know.

Super Mario 3D Worldlaunches on November 22nd, exclusively for Wii U.
