Nintendo's Secret Weapon

Kotaku - On the third floor of Nintendo’s U.S. headquarters, next to the conference rooms named after Mario and Donkey Kong, there’s a door that you can’t open. There’s no boss key or warp pipe here—unless you’re one of the handful of people with a high-security keycard, you’re not getting in.P

If you were to somehow break the seal, you might uncover a treasure trove of Nintendo secrets—scripts and code belonging to unannounced games from the most iconic video game franchises in the world. Maybe you’d stumble upon the Wii U version of Zelda, unfinished and unpolished. Maybe you’d find some hardware revision that hasn’t been unveiled yet. Maybe you'd run into one of the talented writers responsible for many of Nintendo’s most memorable moments. (3DS, Nintendo, Wii, Wii U)

Nintendo's real secret weapon is Shigeru Miyamoto. Without him Nintendo would have long ago lost relevance. I really wish that Nintendo would release a true next gen system so that we could see what Miyamoto could do with the tech.

Whats a true next gen system?

This is Nintendos next generation console. They go at their own pace. Like everyone, theyve had problems developing in hd for the first time. It would be quite the jump for Nintendo to squeeze the most out of an console equivalent to the ps4 when coming from the wii. No game console company has taken a leap that big.

An generation isnt determined by power. If that was the case, x1 and ps4 wouldnt be considered next-gen when pc clearly outshines them.

Miyamoto is the man but you do relize he's not the only one at Nintendo who does a great job ...eiji aonuma the director or producer of every zelda game since OOT has been doing more for Zelda then Miyamoto for years ..and the same can be said for Yoshiaki Koizumi he's been the producer of Mario's best games for years like galaxy's and 3d land......I hate when people act like miyamoto is the only talented person there ...when most of the times he's just over seeing the projects

most people somehow are not aware of aonuma, koizumi, and Masuda. they mostly just know Miyamoto and Sakurai.

I know Kotaku gets a lot of flak on this site, but this is actually a very interesting and well written article. I'd never heard pf the Treehouse before.
