In an interview with Gamer.nl, Shigeru Miyamoto responded to the popularity of crowdfunding, stating that he would be scared to carry the responsibility of having already accepted people's money, before an actual game is released. 'I would be scared to have that kind of responsibility', he said before calling the developers who did turn to this kind of development 'very brave'.
Miyamoto also talked about post-release development of games, saying he would consider this method for Nintendo-games, but only if there is a suitable environment for it. 'For the consumer market we have to be sure that every console is able to update. If such an enviroment is there, (updating) is something that we will consider.'
