Miyamoto on how he spends his time, third party Wii U interest and being locked in a bathroom

The following comments come from Miyamoto...

On how he spends his time...

"Actually, most of my working time is occupied by reading email, making phone calls and returning comments by email... I'm always trying to remind myself that even though something can be done digitally, I need to have face-to-face contact with others."

On third party Wii U support...

"It's a matter of how seriously they commit themselves. Our mission is to approach developers, and if they're willing to commit to experiences only available on Nintendo hardware, we are more willing to help. Each developer has his or her own ideas and we really encourage the differences."

Finally, we have details on how Miyamoto almost missed a royal appointment by being locked in a bathroom.

...on a recent trip to Spain, he'd been due to meet two members of the royal family, but owing to a door lock malfunction, was instead imprisoned in a hotel bathroom. Under increasing pressure to free him, someone eventually hacked down the door with a crowbar before a police escort whisked him, sirens blaring, to his royal appointment.

lmbo thats hilarious. I've been locked in my work bathroom before too. Good thing I had GoNintendo to give me something to read. And Im glad he is open to working with 3rd parties. I agree. As long as they commit themselves it should work well

I'm just picturing Miyamoto banging on the bathroom door going "HELPU, HELPU, I'M TRAPPED IN BATHAROOM", it's making me laugh even though it's racist. It's the little things in life.

I get the feeling we are going to see a game loosely based on this in the future.

So Nintendo is going to force 3rd parties to work under them in order to get their help?

"and if they're willing to commit to experiences only available on Nintendo hardware, we are more willing to help"

is nobody else concerned with this statement? i bought a Wii U and have spent 90% of my time playing COD zombies. sometimes i just want to enjoy a pretty game that doesnt force me to hold the controller a certain way or disallow me from online multiplayer.

Nope.

Must just be you.

Why should it be concerning that Nintendo is willing to partner with developers interested in doing something exclusively for the Wii U? It's not like they're stopping other developers from making games for the system. Sony and MS do the same thing so...

I had a similar experience in Orlando once. I had to jump out of the door.

That bathroom story is funny. I look forward to picking up my Wii U. I missed Wii so I have a lot of catching up to do.
