Direct quotes from Miyamoto on Pikmin 3, nintendogs + cats, interests

The quotes below come directly from the Q&A session of Nintendo’s recent shareholder meeting…

Miyamoto on being busy with the 3DS…

“I get more ideas when I’m busy and with that meaning, this is an extremely good condition now.”

Miyamoto on Pikmin 3…

“Amongst the present promises, I have to finish Pikmin quickly, so production is progressing extremely well.”

Miyamoto on nintendogs + cats, when he said last year that he had a cat…

“For Nintendogs, which we announced at E3, cats will appear this time. Recently, I’ve been taking care of cats. I’m often asked about my interests, but the CEO has told me to if possible not speak about this as the theme of my next game would be known externally. About one year back, I started talking about cats, and right according to schedule, it was announced. We’ll soon be completing Nintendogs + Cats, which features cats.”

Miyamoto on his latest interests/new Nintendo character…

“Also, I’m still full of energy. Recently, I’ve been doing a lot of things — continuing to work hard at swimming, for instance, and also having exchanges with school kids, doing such things a serving on a neighborhood youth guidance committee. I think that next year I can probably deliver something new. I’m still active on the development scene, so please look forward to [my output]. It’s been nearly 10 years since I made the Pikmin character, so I feel this is the year where I must at long last make a new character. This is as far as I’ll answer today.”

Also worth noting, Miyamoto’s time with swimming recently as well as his position as a guidance counselor shouldn’t necessarily be taken too seriously. With the latest information we have from the Q&A session, these two interests shouldn’t be taken to heart like Miyamoto’s cat comments from last year.
