Lots o info from 3ds to pikmin (kinda lots more like tidbits)

This information comes from a Nintendo shareholder's meeting on the 29th at its corporate headquarters in Kyoto...

- Miyamoto is interested in getting a new Pikmin out quickly.
- Miyamoto feels it's time for him to create a new character, since it's been 10 years since Pikmin
- Nintendo is considering adding a playtime feature to the 3DS, much like the one on Wii
- Nintendo has no plans for a theme park, but if they did do one, it would be different from the traditional theme parks that exist now
- Miyamoto has taken an interest in swimming
- Miyamoto is a a member of a youth guidance organization, and spends a lot of time with children
- These statements were by Miyamoto when he was asked about what games he is currently working on
- Nintendo was thinking about the 3DS 6 years ago
- Nintendo is always thinking of new hardware, including successor to 3DS
- the 3DS was demoed at this event, with 50 to 100 Nintendo employees showing off the platform
- the 3DS demo shown featured flowing water, and a wine glass, all in 3D
- the demo also showed a bunch of Mario figures, as well as a poster that featured trophies similar to Smash Bros. trophies
- viewers could change the camera angel with the slide pad or dpad
- there was also a Mario sequence, Yoshi sequence, Pikmin sequence and a Twilight Princess sequence
- this demo video sounds much like the one shown at E3
- on the Ocarina of Time 3DS, and it if will feature visuals closer to Twilight Princess: "We can't share details, but it does have expressive capabilities. This is because the capabilities are of course higher."
- Miyamoto direct quote: "It's about time for a new game character. Perhaps this can be delivered next year."
- Miyamoto direct quote on 3DS: "I'll suddenly have ideas, so being busy now is a good condition."
- Iwata direct quote on possibly adding Nintendo games to an Apple device: "We have absolutely no plans to offer software." i

System tells you how long you play a game and when.

A new character? I wonder what the new character will be like and what kind of game the character will appear.
