Nintendo chief designer Shigeru Miyamoto told a panel of reporters that HD versions of Super Mario World or Super Mario 64 could eventually come to fruition, but that the company is focusing on creating new games, according to a report today from MCV-UK.
“But most of our developers are working on new games. We like to have them working on new stuff,” Miyamoto said.
However, Miyamoto did add that HD remakes could make for a good project for Nintendo’s development partners.
“ ... That’s something I hope we can introduce in the future,” Miyamoto said.
Nintendo isn’t exactly shy when it comes to remakes. Just this September, the video game publisher and developer launched an HD remake of The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker.
As for Nintendo’s upcoming title Super Mario 3D World, Miyamoto said elements of past titles can be found scattered about in the game.
“There is a lot of content like that,” Miyamoto said.
Miyamoto said the Nintendo’s trying to create inroads with new players, and thus gamers could see more 3D games in the future.
“We’ve tried to find some fun new elements that we could incorporate. I certainly wouldn’t rule out the possibility of creating more games like (Super Mario Galaxy) in the future,” Miyamoto said.
