Shigeru Miyamoto has created an eclectic but impressive library of games in his storied career, from Super Mario Bros. and Pikmin to Wii Music and Nintendogs. However, in a recent keynote speech at the 2018 Computer Entertainment Developers Conference in Yokohama, Miyamoto revealed that he has no interest in tackling one highly popular genre: MMORPGs.
In a report from Kotaku, Miyamoto was against making a MMORPG during their peak as he did not like the subscription model. Miyamoto, who is known to jump from project to project, said, “Since I get tired of things easily, I don’t want to keep making one game.” A MMORPG, which thrives on updates and new content, would tie him down, he feels.
While this is completely understandable, it certainly is interesting to think about what assuredly crazy take Miyamoto would have on a massively multiplayer game.
