Wii News: Miyamoto alludes to new Nintendo characters in '08

Famed Nintendo game designer Shigeru Miyamoto said in an interview published on Sunday that new Nintendo characters could be coming as soon as next year.

The story is too old to be commented.

Sounds interesting.

It also has me thinking of Pikmin in Smash Bros. Either as a trophy or a character.

I hope it's something that will stay, and not go the way of the Falcon or Fox.
Nintendo needs to revive more characters from their games, but then again games take time to make. :(

It's Nintendo's answer for the hardcore fans (i.e. MGS/GOW). A new and original hardcore franchise on the Wii. It will be an open-ended action/FPS wartime space odyssey with dark Asian undertones and an American comic style storyline (i.e. Max Payne/Red Steel meets Killzone 2/Halo). The main character will be a Mexican bean farmer named Juan who gets drafted by the United Global Defense Force to plant the seeds of destruction within a menacing new enemy's territory light years away.

Seriously, whatever it is, it better be unique, fun, and entertaining. History has shown that Miyamoto usually delivers.
