Is Nintendo Working On Super Mario Galaxy 3?

Posted on by Ryan


In a recent Interview with Eurogamer, Shigeru Miyamoto has revealed that Nintendo is not focused on developing a Super Mario Galaxy 3 at this time and is more focused on 2D games such as the New Super Mario Bros. series. Miyamoto stated…

“Going back to our roots and making New Super Mario Bros., anyone can play that. So that’s why we went back. We’re always thinking, is there a middle ground where people who do enjoy the 3D worlds of Galaxy and those who enjoy New Super Mario Bros. can both enjoy it? We’re always looking at those opportunities.”

“On the other hand, me and [Yoshiaki] Koizumi-san, director of Galaxy, are always looking to challenge Galaxy and do another 3D action title, however, we can’t make so many games at once in parallel.”

Eurogamer then asked if they would need a more powerful console such as the Nintendo NX. Miyamoto just replied…

“Wii U’s definitely good enough in terms of hardware performance, it is more the workload of the team. If you look at Star Fox Zero, the TV and GamePad are both rendered in 60 frames, so in total that’s 120 frames. It’s really just a matter of the CPU speed at this point.”
