    This isn't a shock at all. He said he was going to cool off a bit. And as for the Paper Mario thing... I don't know why fans are complaining. He said he made that decision based on Club Nintendo opinions, so we only have ourselves to blame. I couldn't care less about the story, I just wish it was more RPG like the originals, that's my only gripe.

    But hey, hopefully he'll still have a say and people will go to him for input. I mean, the guy is a genius. I say don't exclude him from everything unless he asks to be excluded. Get his input.

    Why would they? Miyamoto taught people in the EAD dude, he took students on and everything. If I recall, I think Mario Galaxy was a title that he and the people he taught made.

    At least other franchises will come in to light now; enough of mario, bring on metroid and donkey kong.

    Eh, he has made good games but I would like to see some new ideas pumped into the franchises.

    Not Metroid: Other M ideas, but you have to admit there's a certain level of staleness and a constant "playing it safe" approach with games like Mario and Zelda.

    ... Well, I hope this isn't completely bad news. I hope something good comes from this. And I hope Miyamoto still makes games too. x_x

    I love the guy, but I feel his interference in many recent projects has started to let down Nintendo.

    From mistakes like Wii Music to turning RareWare's Dinosaur Planet into Starfox Adventures, and asking Intelligent Systems to strip Paper Mario of its unique individual charms, and possibly being responsible for the homogenized design of the New Super Mario Bros series...I feel Miyamoto may have lost touch somewhat.
    But then titles like Super Mario Galaxy 1&2 and Super Mario 3D Land have also been hits. Meanwhile, Mario Kart 7, an excellent game, and Mario Tennis Open, maybe not such a great game, have suffered from character roster issues.

    Can Nintendo really be, without Miyamoto at the helm?

    Indeed. I wish to see a change as drastic as A Link to the Past was to Zelda 1. Like Ocarina of Time was to ALTTP... and most of all, as Majoras Mask was to OOT. Even though it had the same(ish) graphics, on the same console and everything... The Doomsday theme, the three day rule, doing things over and over again (In a good way!)... it was such a fresh new take on Zelda. I find Twilight Princess and Skyward Sword to be... Ocarina of Time-ish.. Wind Waker was had a cool new graphics direction, and sailing around... but it was also very similar to OOT in spirit.

    Now, what I would like to see is actually a follow up to Zelda 2, on 3DS. The over head view, the side scrolling action.. Like the zelda mini-game in Super Smash Bros. Melee... A Lengthy one.. Maybe as a follow up to the other handheld games (awakening, oracles, minish etc.)

    The issue I have with Zelda is that it looks like they flirt with the idea of, well, new ideas, but are just too concerned they'll alienate their fanbase to do anything about it. They tried to have a true open world in Wind Waker but there was like nothing to do. They tried to have some RPG elements in Skyward Sword but they were all completely shallow and obtuse. In the end it's like someone's yanking them back on the "Make it like Ocarina of Time but X" path.

    I'd really be thrilled to see a darker Zelda world that was incredibly open (I don't mean "Hey there's two optional dungeons to do" open I mean like "Hey this thing is as big and has as many sidequests/dungeons as Skyrim" type of thing), had actual RPG elements (like you could actually level up, find new equipment, etc), and maybe even tried some nonlinear gameplay choices (Like why not have a boss you can defeat in three different ways, each catering to a specific element you level up?).

    The argument is made that "If you change Zelda then IT'S NOT ZELDA!" but we've had 15 years of the same Zelda and I don't want to deal with that anymore. They have a console that's basically on par with current consoles that can pump out massive worlds, beautiful cinematics, and tons of content. Abuse it.

    I'm all with you on that Guild, Especially the open world, and some RPG elements. I also find it too bad that the collectibles almost never do anything. I don't want to only go around finding heart pieces. I want more power up things to find. But Like Majoras Mask, there were sidequests in that game. and they did stray from many of the classical concepts at least... and it was dark. and I want more... death. death of a character that has meant something to you for a good portion of the game. not just random guy X.

    I don't think this is true. Nobody else has reported it and now the source link is down. I agree with Guild wholeheartedly, though, Miyamoto needs to change his formula.

    I can't say I enjoyed Majora's Mask but I can appreciate it for being a bit more daring and probably being the most offbeat in the franchise.

    It just feels like for every step forward in the franchise they feel a need to go two steps back.

    I can't find this news anywhere else online; all that comes up are old articles speculating on a rumor and a site linking to Valwin's article... which no longer exists.

    I think it's fair to say ya'll got trolled.

    Good. Maybe now Nintendo will start releasing good consoles and games again instead of the garbage they have been releasing for the past ten years.
