Shigeru Miyamoto, legendary developer (and snappy dresser) spoke with Electronic Gaming Monthly about his company’s upcoming baby, the Nintendo Revolution. While not much was learned from the interview (we still do not know anything about the controller), it is nice to hear some verification to what we had all come to assume, and that is the probability of Smash Brothers hitting the DS and Revolution (or, at least, they are ‘thinking’ about making a sequel to the greatest selling GameCube game of all time). He also showed interest in making sequels to Pikmin and Luigi’s Mansion. Miyamoto-san left some ambiguous words on the upcoming console’s DVD capabilities (it will be capable but will require an add-on to cut down on cost but it won’t be external add-on?). Also, there will be no ethernet port - purely wireless - but you can add one via a USB port.
Of course, Miyamoto had to do some gloating - viva la Revolution, right? In terms of technical prowess, he calls the Revolution more than capable by comparing this generation’s Zelda games with ‘next-generation visuals’. If that was not fighting words enough, Miyamoto believes that the Revolution’s controller will become the industry standard. Of course, we kind of have to take his word at this point since we know nothing about it, except that it would work great with the game Pikmin.
I hope Nintendo isn't making a mistake by not having a ethernet port to use. Not everyone is wireless and sometime USB is just a PITA.
