Miyamoto wants Wii U Metroid, Star Fox

While fans are no doubt waiting for Zelda HD, Shigeru Miyamoto has other Nintendo properties on his Wii U wish list.

The iconic developer told IGN he is interested in seeing how Metroid would benefit from the upcoming console and its tablet-like GamePad controller.

"With Metroid, it's very easy to imagine some interesting implementation for Wii U," the Nintendo development legend said.

"I think that having another screen with the gyro built in really gives you a lot of interesting opportunities for development, and we can bring a lot of our games to life in a completely unique way with that.

"I feel the possibilities of the GamePad for Metroid could be really fantastic. There's certainly a lot that you could do there for that game."

Metroid had two outings on Wii, most recently with the divisive Metroid: Other M in 2010.

Miyamoto added that the series he personally wants to see the most on Wii U is Star Fox. 

Aside from a 3DS re-release of N64 title Lylat Wars last year, there has not been a new Star Fox game since 2006's DS title Star Fox Command. The series last console outing was 2005's Star Fox Assault on GameCube.
