The Pikmin and 1080° Snowboarding director is still at Nintendo.

A recent Twitter post from the current lead Tekken designer has let slip that Nintendo could be working on a brand new IP.

Katsuhiro Harada was asked by a fan what Masamichi Abe, an old colleague of his, is up to these days. According to Harada, Abe is working on "some Nintendo original title."

Masamichi Abe previously worked on games such as Tekken and Tekken 2 with Namco before transitioning over to Nintendo. He has worked both at Nintendo EAD in Kyoto, Japan, and Seattle, Washington. Abe has also served as a director on titles like 1080° Snowboarding, Pikmin & Pikmin 2, Metroid Prime: Hunters, Mario vs. Donkey Kong: Minis March Again and Aura Aura Climber.

What was Nintendo's last-created IP (that actually mattered?) Pikmin?

The whole Mii thing is a pretty important and powerful intellectual property.

RABicle?! Where the hell did he come from?

Videogames don't matter.

Hence the last created IP that mattered were Napoleon cards.

They should make a new 1080  F-Zero game!

Many years ago I would have been excited about pretty much any new Nintendo IP.  But now I have to cross my fingers and hope it's not a casual game, some minor eShop title or some quirky Japanese game that NOA doesn't localize.  There are too many ways a new Nintendo IP could fall flat.

The last thing the guy worked on was Aura Aura Climber.  I had to look up what the hell that even is so the "new original game" could be something like that.

Yeah we've been over this a million times over. We'll just have to wait and see if its something that will add to the Smash Bros roster next gen. Looking forward to Nintenzoo Trainer going toe to toe with Wii Fit Trainer in the summer of 2021.
