Recently, a Q&A interview with Shigeru Miyamoto was posted about the Wii and 3DS. None of it was Zelda-related, but if you want to read the whole thing, be sure to check it at MercuryNews.com. However, there was one thing we thought should of been pointed out and that was Miyamoto’s response to a question about the Wii and Skyward Sword. Although The Legend of Zelda series mainly focuses on intense gamers, according to Miyamoto, Skyward Sword was mostly aimed at casual gamers.
Miyamoto goes on to say that in order for casual gamers to play Skyward Sword, he would have to make the controls less sophisticated and simpler to use.
I suppose getting more people to play games like Zelda is a good thing, but Nintendo are focusing too much on casual gamers and should really focus more on intense gamers because newer installments are getting far too easy and eventually boring. Let’s just hope the Wii-U brings out less easy games and more difficult games, just like the old days.
Let us here what you have to say in the comments below. Do you think Nintendo should focus more on intense gamers or stick with attracting more casual gamers?
