New Nintendo characters are coming soon?

My days aren’t complete until I hear more of Miyamoto’s excruciatingly interesting hints that a new Nintendo franchise is on its way. Two years ago he announced that he was working on a new character and only this month he hinted that he was working on small but important projects for the Wii U.

Now, in an interview with the Guardian newspaper he teased that new characters were on their way and that there was a “strong possibility” that they would be introduced soon.

I don’t have a big list of ideas I want to realise, I usually come up with new ideas while I am working on other games. That said, there’s a strong possibility we will introduce some new characters to the scene soon.

    This is good news! I’m really looking forward to finding out what/who it is! One of the main reasons I am looking forward to this is because they NEVER get their games wrong (or 99% of the time, anyway)
    I just hope that working with a new character inspires them to make something completely different, NOT a mario/zelda/metroid clone with a different main character

    Awesome. It has been awhile since Nintendo made new characters.
