"I thought people had grown weary of it."
Funny how that hasn't stopped them from releasing Mario Party game after Mario Party game or from releasing virtually the same Animal Crossing game multiple times.
Miyamoto said he felt there was not much room left for evolution of F-Zero, asking the series fans "What do you want that we haven't done before"?
If this is their logic, why do Mario Kart and the NSMB games continue to be released? Not that I don't like them because I do enjoy both series, but neither have really added anything all that new in quite some time, no more evolution than would be possible with F-Zero.
I'm sure that this has more to do with sales of the series than anything else, which is fine, Nintendo is a company and their objective is to make money, but saying there's nothing new to do with it seems like a stretch to me.
