Miyamoto: "I don’t think everything needs to be 3D"

miyamoto3

All you kids today, with your high-res graphics and 3D gaming. You have it lucky.

Shigeru Miyamoto is against you whipper snappers, somewhat. He thinks everything shouldn't necessarily be 3D.

"I don’t think everything needs to be 3D, or that just because we’re seeing more 2D games now, that everything’s going to shift back to 2D," he said in an interview with Nintendo Power.

"Instead, I think that what’s going on is that people are realizing the benefits of a 3D game, and at the same time, remembering what the benefits of 2D games were," he said. "When going 2D, you need the courage to not be so attached to visual appearance of the games and to really pursue the gameplay experience."

Thanks, D'Toid.
