Miyamoto want to make a first person shooter

Nintendo’s Shigeru Miyamoto, creator of super-cute IP such as Mario, Donkey Kong and Zelda, has confessed his desire to make a first person shooter.

Don’t hold your breath for this intriguing concept, however – the Nintendo development boss says he hasn’t got the time to dedicate to such a project right now.

"I actually do kind of want to make a first-person shooter, but I don’t have time," he told Kotaku.

"Rather than necessarily the question of ‘What kind of weapon do I have?’ in a first person shooter or ‘What kind of effect does that have on an enemy?’, I think that the structure of a first-person shooter is something that’s very interesting," added Miyamoto.

"Having that 3D space that in theory you are in and being able to look around and explore that-particularly being able to do that in conjunction with another person-is very interesting."
