Miyamoto doesn't want photo realism

Shigeru Miyamoto doesn't have the ambiition to create photo realistic games, not even for Wii U. He prefers to create a game world that's full of fantasy. Currently he's creating Luigi's Mansion 2 for 3DS, Pikmin 3 for Wii U and an unannounced game.

Yes please. We already have enough amount of developers who can do that. Has anyone seen NI Nu Kuni? Valkyria Chronicles?

Makes sense. None of the Nintendo characters asides from Link would benefit for becoming realistic.

Samus. They could detail the hell out of her suit.

F-Zero and Starfox games could also benefit from realistic graphics. In Starfox's case just the Arwings and machines though. A realistic-lookin bi-pedal fox would look so weird lol.

The fact that there are studios that lean in a photo realistic direction is great, but there will always be room for games like Shadow of the Colossus, Limbo, Zelda (Wind Waker), Muramasa, Team Fortress 2, Jet Set Radio, Okami etc etc.

Team Fortress 2 looks and plays great on my crappy PC. I'm glad that Miyamoto isn't pursuing photorealism like everyone else. I did like the Zelda Wii U demo but that wasn't entirely photo-realistic.

I rather devs use their imaginations to make their own art style rather making what they see outside.

Pikmin 3 :)

Well, I think part of imagination is to use the innovation that ,with art, improves each generation. There's no reason that there can't be a time and season or a combination into some sort of new sensation to improve the relation between real and fiction.

he said he didn't want to do it, doesn't mean others wont. anyway it all depends on the game.

I love what Miyamato stands for as part of Nintendo but he's a personal hero to me. Awesome guy, brilliant, witty always interesting. Just a wonderful person and there's absolutely no one like him.
Now here's the one million dollar question. How did Miyamato create a Chracter in the early eighties that still is relevant today? Loved by children and adults the world over?
No one's even come close to accomplishing that not even Walt Disney.
