Shigeru Miyamoto performed one of his famous “tea table flips” on Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon developer Next Level Games. Speaking with IGN, director Bryce Holliday said Miyamoto “threw out all the bosses of the game” and made the team start over. “He often challenged us to not go with our first idea, or to experiment further on different things and then cherry-pick our best ideas,” he said. The anecdote has much in common with Dylan Cuthbert’s post-mortem of Star Fox at GDC this year. The full interview feature is quite an interesting read.
