Miyamoto on lack of online support in New Super Mario Bros. Wii

Posted on November 14, 2009 by (@NE_Brian) in News, Wii

At E3 this year, Shigeru Miyamoto told reporters at a roundtable event that there would be no online support for New Super Mario Bros. Wii because the game uses all of the console’s processing power. But apparently there’s more to it. On the Nintendo Channel, there is an interview with Miyamoto and he once again talked about the lack of online play. Apparently Nintendo concentrated on local multiplayer only because “it’s more fun if you can see the face of the other people you are playing with.”

“Naturally, Nintendo uses the Internet now and with Super Smash Bros. Brawl we had a game you can play with other people, wherever they are. There will probably be people asking why we didn’t do that with this game as well. Well I think it’s more fun if you can see the face of the other people you are playing with, which is why we concentrated on this design this time.”
