Chris Buffa (Modojo): It's been a while since Nintendo created a new intellectual property as big as Mario and Zelda, by no means a criticism. The company had an incredible run in the 80s and 90s and used its many franchises to dominate the industry across multiple decades. If only all publishers could be so fortunate.
That said, the fact that legendary game designer Shigeru Miyamoto is up to something fills me with excitement, and why not? This is the same genius that delivered Mario and Zelda, along with Pikmin and Nintendogs.
