In a recent conversation with IGN, legendary game creator Shigeru Miyamoto was asked what he would most like to see on Nintendo’s new console.  He listed two franchises: Metroid and Star Fox.

In talking about Metroid, Miyamoto had this to say:

With Metroid it’s very easy to imagine some interesting implementation for Wii U.  I think that having another screen with the gyro built in really gives you a lot of interesting opportunities for development, and we can bring a lot of our games to life in a completely unique way with that.

Although there were no details on why he wants to see Star Fox on Wii U, it is presumed that Miyamoto would like to see how the game would use the built-in gyro and second screen of the Game Pad.

This comes a while after a rumor about a Star FoxMetroid crossover.  Though that rumor was debunked rather quickly, it does leave a tinge of irony to this interview.

So, what would you most like to see on the Wii U?  Leave a comment below.
