And Now For Something Completely DifferentNo, Mario maker Shigeru Miyamoto is not retiring (yet), but rather working on an "undisclosed original title." The head of Japanese gaming giant Nintendo's Entertainment Analysis and Development Division (isn't that, like, everything?) said as much to Dutch video news outlet Zoom.in.

Of course, the guy revealed nothing in detail about the game, but some interesting tidbits regarding his creative process and the work behind hits like Super Mario 3D Land for the 3DS. As for why very few original Nintendo games sport photo-realistic graphics, Miyamoto simply wants to create things that look different from reality.

This interview follows one by Wired in which Miyamoto made several mentions of retirement, sending the gaming world into a brief tailspin over Nintendo's future, and arguably the future of video games. However, the long-time Nintendo game designer took this as a golden opportunity to ... clarify those mentions of retirement.

We also have a pretty good idea of who will be left with Nintendo's biggest franchises when Miyamoto exits: those who adored his games as children. And that sounds just fine.
