    That makes me wonder.... Hmm. I think this is the start of a new era! But will those new characters be as good as the usual old ones? We shall wait and see.

    Is anything not created by miyamoto considered not nintendo? Cause come on we have dillon, the pushmo fellow, the sakura samurai, the kids from sin and punishment 2, and anyone from freaking xenoblade. I mean come on they have plenty of new people being cranked out all the time!

    Hmmm I never thought of it that way, you got a point there, but I think by new characters he meant First Party games that will stay around like Link, Mario, etc. That's just a theory so I might be totally wrong.

    I think he means memorable characters, Xenoblade...well fantastic game but I can't even remember the characters names and they're hardly anything different from other JRPG characters, S&P2...really the kids? They're just generic kids.

    There's been are characters not by Miyamoto that are considered Nintendo characters such as Samus, Pit, Kirby & Ness.

    Yeah they've done some new IP's very recently but not many with memorable franchise starting characters.

    To be honest though, there's not many new big new characters in the gaming world today by anyone that aren't your standard video game character fodder.

    I can think of Angry Birds which is now a brand, probably the biggest & best known new one of this gen (though I find the games to be "meh") & Sackboy.

    People write those games off as e-shop trash, but it's partially Nintendo's fault for lack of advertising that would help establish new characters in the Nintendo lexicon

    If Sakura Samurai and Dillon aren't in the next Smash Bros. I'd be very surprised

    Hopefully a baddy, like Bowser or so :O Maybe a demoniacal friend of Bowser, would be cool.

    What Miyamoto also mentioned was the importance of keeping their other franchises alive.
    Here's the quote:
    "We need to continue releasing new games in existing franchises otherwise those franchises might die"

    This is something that could hint at future F-Zero or Starfox titles, not only that but I would also like to believe in the possibility of a franchise revival like what Uprising was to Kid Icarus, is StarTropics 3 in the pipeline? Fans seem to like the idea at least.

    I thought pushmo was only published by Nintendo, rather than developed by them?

    My hopes for the new characters to be awesome is very low, still thats just my personal bias since I prefer female characters over male characters.

    It was developed by Intelligent Systems who are based at Nintendo.

    When Miyamoto gets cranking, the results are always, at the very least, interesting. If he's got something new up his sleeve, I'll be more than happy to see what it is.

    If he doesn't create new franchises he should mix things up with his existing franchises! Like for example he could have Mario being the one kidnapped and Peach has to go re- oh wait..... In all seriousness I would love to see new exclusive franchises from Nintendo that along with 3rd party support and the WiiU/3DS will be huge hits.
