Could this be the Super Mario 4 rumoured in last week’s domain filing?

Elsewhere into the interview Miyamoto gives some insight into Nintendo’s current directions.

He says that traditional games” are now very well catered for by emerging markets such as iOS, so Nintendo is instead focusing its efforts on trying to create new types of gaming experiences.
