Miyamoto passes the Wii Music track selection blame to Kondo, says Zelda may not be unveiled at next E3, and jokes about a stock market game

“Koji Kondo is responsible for the music in many Nintendo games and he selected the songs. The criteria he went by was that they must be well known to everyone and they must be simple. When the chord progression is simple, the song is better suited to the ad-libbing you do in the game’s jam sessions. Of course, if we only included simple, traditional songs, that might be boring for some people, so that’s why we included some contemporary tunes as well.” - Shigeru Miyamoto

Poor Miyamoto…I wonder if he’s getting tired of defending Wii Music. I bet questions about his key core franchises are welcome at this point! Here’s what Miyamoto has to say about the next Zelda to hit Wii…

“I’m really not sure when we’ll be able to make a public announcement on that. I can’t even say if the next E3 will be the right opportunity to do so. But rest assured, our teams are working on new projects right now.”

And finally, Miyamoto leaves us with a joke about the next Wii expanded audience game…

“Ha! Well, maybe Wii Stockmarket would be a good idea?”
