Wait, Shigeru Miyamoto wants to make an FPS!?

TLDR;

Miyamoto recently sat down to talk with Kotaku, and explained that he would love to do an FPS, if only he had the time.

In a recent interview with the website Kotaku, acclaimed game designer Shigeru Miyamoto, known for making such family friendly IPs as Mario and Zelda, has stated his desire to make a first-person shooter game, much like Call of Duty or Halo.

"I actually do kind of want to make a first-person shooter, but I don't have time." 

He goes on to say:

"Rather than necessarily the question of 'What kind of weapon do I have?' in a first person shooter or 'What kind of effect does that have on an enemy?', I think that the structure of a first-person shooter is something that's very interesting, Having that 3D space that in theory you are in and being able to look around and explore that—particularly being able to do that in conjunction with another person—is very interesting."

Miyamoto went on to express his desire to use the Wii U's tablet technology in a FPS game, and how having all of your information on the bottom screen would free up the top screen to focus on gameplay.  Unfortunately, it appears that it won't be happening anytime soon, as Mr. Miyamoto has too much on his plate at the moment. You can read the full story on Kotaku.

Still, it would be nice to see what can happen when a legend like Miyamoto steps out of his normal niche to work on something new.  I think it would be in Nintendo's favor to clear up some of his schedule to give him time to work on an FPS. Perhaps a new Metroid after the abysmal Other M game.  What do you think g1s?
