Miyamoto: Nintendo "will introduce new characters soon"

Nintendo Universe writes:

There is a “strong possibility” that Nintendo will “introduce some new characters to the scene soon,” according to recent comments made by Shigeru Miyamoto. (3DS, Nintendo, Nintendo DS, Wii, Wii U)

I sure hope Nintendo introduces some new characters and IPs on the Wii U. I think some of their characters could mature a little bit too... like Link and Samus. No blood and guts or cursing or anything like that, just a bit more grown up.

I'm 35 and have played on every Nintendo console since the NES and I just don't feel like some of the franchises have grown with me. I think Nintendo should use more influence from within the company besides Miyamoto... see what they can come up with.

I'd also like to see Pit get a console game for the Wii U. Kid Ic was one of my favorite NES titles and I would be hyped to see a full blown Kid Icarus on console.

Prepare for the world to explode because Nintendo is making new IPs
(The world of N4G, that is).

It won't explode. They will just start posting more "Nintendo should go 3rd party", so everyone can play their IPs, articles.

Either that, or automatically label the new Ips "shovelware".
Jourdy288  +   845d ago
Hmm, perhaps this is related to Pikmin 3?

They can could make 10 new characters each with new games and game ideas that are just increable And most of the people on this site would hate anyway!
ChickeyCantor  +   845d ago
It will be most likely cheerful characters. And people will hate on it because "It's not of their taste".

It's always been like that.

Now im interested!!!!!!! Finally something from Nintendo i want to hear!!!!!! Geez ppl on here get real emotional when you criticize their console (like nintendo) for not bringing anything new to the table in terms of ip's and they call you a fanboy. Things like this is what i want to hear and will interest me more about the wii u.
mike1up  +   845d ago
That's funny, because Nintendo already mentioned new IPs coming weeks, if not months, earlier. This is just Miyamoto saying it (again).

It gets even funnier when you think about Xenoblade, The Last Story, and Pandora's Tower (all of which are new IPs) coming out this year.

But that's okay... play innocent, I will pretend with you.

Nah they will ignore them just like all Nintendo franchises not related to Mario and Zelda.
Nada Nuff  +   845d ago
Heard this story before.....
firelogic  +   845d ago
lol, when's the last time nintendo had a new IP? All they do is constantly go back to their dried up well.
christheredhead  +   845d ago
Yah, the well seems pretty dried up. Nintendo games are still fun and enjoyable. Dont you hate that?

@ Firelogic & @ manman : so did we all just imagine games like Xenoblade, The Last Story, Pandora's Tower, Disaster Day of Crisis, Dillions Rolling Adventure, Rythem Heaven, Captain Rainbow,Excite Truck, Excite Bots,Pushmo,WiiSports/Resort,W ii Music, WiiFit/Plus, Steel Diver, Nintendogs etc ??? Are those not all new Nintendo IP's that came out within the last generation of gaming???

firelogic  +   842d ago
Yes, those are all indeed new IPs. I guess I should have specified, new "GOOD" IPs eh?

So if I'm amassing a list of PS3 ones, I should include the likes of Lair, Haze, all those stupid minis, all those stupid eye-toy games, and all those stupid move games?

Heck the 3DS launched with a new IP. Steel Diver!

Also pikmin just was made last gen
Fire emblem and advance wars just came to NA last gen
Trace memory just started on the DS
The operation Rainfall games are new!

People see what they wanna see
Mikhail  +   845d ago
Cool, but I want HD zelda! ASAP Wii U would be my first console from Ninty. Only played their games because my cousin had it back in the day.

Nintendo had an amazing opportunity to introduce new characters with the Wii but didn't even bother to create new franchise and stick to what works.
PopRocks359  +   845d ago
Oh good. Maybe now people will shut up about new IPs they don't even intend to buy.
jalen247  +   845d ago
Hopefully. Nintendo really needs some new IPs.

As much as I love Mario, Zelda, and Metroid.

We need some new amazing ip.
AWBrawler  +   845d ago
I love the idea of new ips but I'll be happy with a new F-zero or a Captain Falcon Adventure game
CaptainPunch  +   845d ago
Anyone can make a new IP, but making the IP as successful as Mario or Zelda is another story.
hazelamy  +   845d ago
Wadaisy and Wapeach then? o_O
GameTavern  +   844d ago
I don't get it... "When was the last time Nintendo made a new IP.. they released Xenoblade 3 weeks ago..."

Its not that they don't create new IPs/brands, if people choose to ignore that.. its a different discussion. But to act like they've done nothing new since Mario and Zelda.. is odd
Ck1x  +   844d ago
Its not only odd but its the reason that these companies release say Call of Duty 1-4 so quickly. Because when companies like Sony, Microsoft & Nintendo do release new IP's, people dont even go out any support these games in the same fashion that they do with the big budget Hollywood game titles...
