Miyamoto talks Wii Music, online, the future


There’s a five-pager up over at Edge today with Shigeru Miyamoto that makes for a good Friday morning read.

In it, the father of Nintendo talks Wii Music, and the trials and tribulations that have come so far with that evergreen title.

There’s also the brief aside to online play that every Nintendo exec seemingly makes today, in addition to some insight about what Miyamoto has in store for us next now that his initial Wii “to do” list is complete (Wii Music was the last box to check).


  1. Please, please make the Wii Music talk stop.

    I can’t decide which is more overwritten about. Wii Music or harcdcore vs casual.

    I’m tired of them both.

  2. Oh great, the great one has became delusional.

  3. as much as I want him to stop what he’s doing and go back to the old Miyamoto, I really enjoyed that last paragraph.

  4. @ RoyalRook:
    “Oh great, the great one has became delusional.”


    @ typicalhardcoregamerlivinginthepast:
    “as much as I want him to stop what he’s doing and go back to the old Miyamoto”

    There is no “old Miyamoto”. There is only “Miyamoto who focused more of his time on games that appealed to you” VS. “Miyamoto who does whatever the hell he wants at all times (as he always has)” If all he did was make goddamn Mario and Zelda games till the day he died he’d never BE that guy who kept innovating till his dying breath, he’d just be a has-been who spent the last 20 or so years of his life making sequels to games he first created in his early twenties.

    Goddamn selfish, self-centered hardcore gamers. I swear, people like you will never, ever learn: you can bitch all you want about the current direction Nintendo is headed in, but it is the right direction for Nintendo and is only helping the industry…concepts you can’t understand because your mind is still in 1998, waiting for the next big Nintendo branded thrill.

  5. A creative person at his best.

    Mario Galaxy is no more than 1 year old, and it is the best 3d plataformer ever created, Zelda TP was great, and people still complain…

    LET A CREATIVE mind be creative, and innovative.

    BTW I love WII MUSIC, one of the best Wii experiences.

    IGN, Game Trailers, Game spot reviewers were on crack reviewing this title, they just didn’t get it.

  6. “IGN, Game Trailers, Game spot reviewers were on crack reviewing this title, they just didn’t get it.”

    Umm, no, they get it fine.

  7. ResidenEvil:

    Actually not, they didn’t.

    They didn’t understand why there was a scoring system that let you give your own score, they didn’t get that this was NOT a button smasher with a cool soundtrack (GH RB).. of course they did not understand the game.

    Miyamoto CLEARLY said that this was a game to enable people embrace the joy of music and creativity.. give those people a tool to express themselves thorough music instruments, and maybe from there, grab a real guitar, or a real piano.

    So ¿why those reviewers slayer Wii music because “everybody can wins” “it is not GH” “it doesn’t have Nirvana in the soundtrack” “you can score 100% always”, “if we don’t use the musical score, we all suck”…

    Those are the facts.

  8. One thing is to say: “I did not LIKE the game”, and other bashing it because it is not what I WANT it to be, even if that was not its purpose

  9. Excellent points, Carlos. So what do you have to say that, ResidentEvil?
    You can open your fat hardcore gamer mouth to bash a game you’ll never understand, but when some tries to explain it to you you’re at a loss for words?

  10. What i do not realize is in truth how you are not actually a lot more well-favored than you might be now. You are very intelligent. You know thus significantly with regards to this matter, produced me individually believe it from a lot of numerous angles. Its like men and women are not interested except it is something to do with Girl gaga! Your personal stuffs outstanding. Always care for it up!

  11. Excellent post, I will be checking back regularly to look for updates.

  12. Excellent read, I just passed this onto a colleague who was doing a little research on that. And he actually bought me lunch since I found it for him smile Thus let me rephrase that: Thank you for lunch!

  13. I have to thank you for the efforts you have put in penning this website.
    I really hope to check out the same high-grade content from you later on as well.
    In truth, your creative writing abilities has inspired me to get my own site now 😉
