Yoshio Sakamoto: Nintendo will surprise with its new home console

Recently in 3DJuegos have had the chance to chat with Yoshio Sakamoto, co-creator of the Metroid and Nintendo head of a Group SPD (in charge of the WarioWare series and the new Metroid: Other M, among others).

When asked about the new Nintendo home console, Sakamoto of course, did not disclose important details about the machine (Satoru Iwata warned not to say anything at the moment in order not to competition), but it found that we can expect something surprising. In his own words:

I started gaming on the NES and felt like Nintendo betrayed me after the Super NES.

If Nintendo can give me a hardcore experience on there next console I will be more thank happy to give them my money.

Kakkoii3027d ago

After the SNES? I'd say N64 was fairly hardcore for the time too. Especially with games like Conquers Bad Fur Day and GoldenEye.

Anyone, waiting for a hi-def Metroid Prime will just have to pick up Halo Reach. I've definitely been sleeping on Reach, that shit looks awesome!

"Anyone, waiting for a hi-def Metroid Prime will just have to pick up Halo Reach. I've definitely been sleeping on Reach, that shit looks awesome!"

O hey, i just thought i come here and compare Metroid to Halo, cause obviously they are the same.
You see one character can shoot, and the other too, o and there are aliens.
Therefor all games are mario games because you can jump!
And all consoles are "The brown box" because that was the first console.
You see my logic?
Its hi-def guys!

Active Reload3027d ago

I didn't mean any disrespect sidar, lol. I'm sorry if my comment got your panties in a bunch.

ChickeyCantor3027d ago

O dear,
You aren't disrespecting anyone, its just flat-out nonsense what you said. =P
Carry on =D

NeutralGamer3027d ago

Its not flatout nonsense...

Halo 1 reminds me alot of the Metroid Prime series...

Halo 2, 3, but Halo 1 (and ODST a bit) REALLY had a Metroid Prime feeling over it... Kindar like Dead Space also reminds a bit of Metroid Prime...

I really hope Halo: Reach is going back to the Halo roots, so we once again get that "Metroid Prime" feeling...

ChickeyCantor3027d ago (Edited 3027d ago )

Just because it reminds you of something does not mean they are the same.
Halo is not Metroid and Metroid is not halo.
They totally play different( yes even the prime series ).

Seriously I do not get how you get the prime feeling by playing a halo game. Prime series are heavily based on exploration.

They are in the end different experiences. So you cant justify skipping a metroid game for halo, cause it reminds you of metroid.

smoothdude3026d ago

Okay lets get this straight, it was because Nintendo did not do original that they lost to PSX and PS2. It was nintendo how was first to brag about visuals (N64), and the only reason that Nintendo came out with the Wii is because they were did not have the cash that Microsoft and Sony had to invest in new technology.

Nintendo did not know how well the Wii would preform. So stop with all this PR stuff and just give us a better online experience. Until that day happens I don't care what their next console is like.

ChickeyCantor3026d ago

Any reference to your claim them not having the money?

smoothdude3026d ago

Sidar, check out Nintendo's financial statement here:

I am not saying that they were not profitable, but they definitely did not have the money that Sony or Microsoft had. I am hoping that the next console from Nintendo fixes their online problems.

can you imagine if Nintendo delivers for both the hardcore and casual - what would the outcome be on the N4G users.

dionnysus3027d ago

maybe as long as there are no more damned party games!

Theonik3027d ago

I expect the same welcome Move has had.
Well no but it's the same thing really.

zatrox3027d ago

The Wii has a fair share of games, sadly overshadowed by tons of shovelware, but hell if the GameCube didn't had of the best games of that gen. It was glorious.

eagle213027d ago

Forget ya'll..Wii da

i think that the next nintendo console will sale: Wii x2


Up until the GC Nintendo were great, but when the Wii launched they became a toilet.

eagle213027d ago (Edited 3027d ago )

and Sony and MS became the tissue I guess....cause Wii da best. 35 million units ahead of both :)

Highest rated game this year...wii da best. :)

CombatEvolving3027d ago

I doubt I'll be surprised. I hated the Wii. Its motion control used Wii motion and not real motion. Very annoying to use or enjoy. If I were to use motion control it would need to be fluid and natural. I'm sure their next console will have a new gimmick that will later be done right.

MicroSony4Life3027d ago

The next Nintendo will have a gimmick but lets hope its optional.

Come on Nintendo, you practically invented the remote controller for consoles now give me a pad that would me me proud to be a Nintendo gamer.


That's my main grip with Wii too.

I don't think it's library is that bad (although I tired of people trying to justify good library listing Mario Kart as hardcore game, but good games are good games none the less) or that the hardware limits are that much of a problem (most games still look good enough), what bothers me is the control... I'm not against motion controls, but I really don't buy anything I don't have, at least, the option to avoid them.

Motion controls are a good new addition to the gaming industry and maybe Wii deserved it success to it (I still think it was out of curiosity an noob friendily-ish, as the thing originally barelly worked as people expected), but they better refine it a lot and make the normal pad the standard (or have both as standard at least) so their games are designed with this in mind and don't play like crap on Wiimote and even crapier in classic controller, that if they plan on collect my money next round. Would love some more Zelda and Metroid, gamepad version please.

RyuCloudStrife3027d ago

"Surely the new Nintendo machine will leave you all with my mouth open."
