Miyamoto assures gamers that another Super Mario Galaxy isn’t out of the question
New SMG not out of the question.
Several fans have wondered if Super Mario 3D World meant that the Galaxy series was at an end. Miyamoto has made a comment on that, stating, “Just so there is no misunderstanding, I should point out that this doesn’t mean we’ll never make another Super Mario Galaxy game.”
Producer Yoshiaki Koizumi adds that, “When we first started making Super Mario 3D World, Miyamoto-san asked me if this was going to be more like Super Mario Galaxy or more like Super Mario 3D Land. When we made Super Mario 3D Land, we had our eyes on the form of this game, so we made it this way without any hesitation.”
As for why Nintendo doesn’t work on both Galaxy and 3D Land/World at the same time, Miyamoto explains that the team behind each game is the same. “The same team can’t make both at the same time,” Miyamoto stated. “And we can’t bring in a second party and slap the name Super Mario Galaxy on it. I suppose we could idealistically make both in Tokyo, but we want to do something new too, so there was that dilemma.”
What are your thoughts? Will we possibly be seeing a new Super Mario Galaxy sometime soon?
