But he doesn't have the time, he said.

Mario, Zelda, and Donkey Kong creator Shigeru Miyamoto has expressed interest in developing a first-person shooter.

“I actually do kind of want to make a first-person shooter, but I don’t have time,” he told Kotaku.

“Rather than necessarily the question of ‘What kind of weapon do I have?’ in a first person shooter or ‘What kind of effect does that have on an enemy?’, I think that the structure of a first-person shooter is something that’s very interesting. Having that 3D space that in theory you are in and being able to look around and explore that—particularly being able to do that in conjunction with another person—is very interesting.

“Obviously that would be very fun. If you have two people doing that in the same room, that could create a very fun and unique gameplay experience.”

Miyamoto is currently at work on Wii U’s Pikmin 3.

    Keep flooding and over saturating the market with FPS. I hope that 1 day their popularity start to fade.

      I think COD is starting to lose steam but EA is after the the fps throne. I believe fps have slowed the past couple years but I could be wrong

    • @LordKaiser: FPS has its loyal audience

        @mateuspradosousa: I know but whe that particular audience becomes too mainstream you start to see less from other genres. And when you see less of the other types of game you have less different options to play. The games I see the most these days are either FPS or the typical action game that when you die you start where you died like Uncharted, God of War etc.

        • @LordKaiser: nobody can give to you all this “innovation” pal

            @mateuspradosousa: Well if developers where not that lazy copying each other works and recycling the same BS over and over I’m sure they could.

    It should be a mix of Super Mario and Mirror’s Edge.

      [email protected]Acidicsam: I agree. He is not specificaly saying he is giving a character a gun and going on a killing spree. He merely admires the FPS Environment.

    Hell No Miyamoto I plan on buying a WiiU my very first Nintendo console you will not curse it with fps.

    Lol. “interesting” was his choice of words … more like “I see they make alot of money and it’s not going anymore for a while and i want some of that $$$”.

    Heck, i don’t blame him but, i’d stick to something that NOT every other company is doing.

    Seriously, fuck FPSs! They are static as hell. Nothing groundbreaking came out of them for years!
