Edge - Legendary game designer Shigeru Miyamoto is leading several new projects as Nintendo positions the Wii U for a fightback. So it’s the perfect time to visit him in Kyoto to talk about Nintendo’s new strategy, its plan to win over core gamers and why building something new is key to the console’s success. The man himself wields a GamePad on the cover of E271, which is out now in print – either as a single issue or a subscription - on iPad, Google Play and Zinio.
Miyamoto isn’t the only person building Wii U’s future, of course. We meet the minds behind the next wave of games as the console gets ready to switch up a gear, including: Zelda franchise supervisor Eiji Aonuma; Yoshi’s Woolly World producer Takashi Tezuka and executive producer Etsunobu Ebisu; Splatoon producer Hisashi Nogami; Devil’s Third CTO Tomonobu Itagaki; Xenoblade Chronicles X executive producer Tetsuya Takahashi; Super Smash Bros director Masahiro Sakurai; and Hyrule Warriors development producer Yosuke Hayashi.
