E3 2014 Media | Miyamoto

Two of Nintendo designer Shigeru Miyamoto's projects were revealed during E3 this week: Project Giant Robot and Project Guard.

In Project Giant Robot, players use the GamePad touch screen to build a giant robot, using the controller as a virtual cockpit to control their newfound creation, knocking over opponents. The game is scheduled for the first half of 2015.

Project Guard, on the other hand, tasks players with stopping a robot invasion using a security system of 12 cameras a means of defense. Simply mount these cameras around a base prior to an invasion, monitoring each one during a robot army invasion. Cameras can fire lasers, so must be primed and ready to survive. The game is scheduled for a release sometime next year.

The Project Guard actually looked surprisingly challenging.

I assume these are eShop titles. I remember hearing something a while back about Miyamoto wanting to try new ideas in smaller games, so it seems like these two are some of the results)

I dunno, I think theres scope for a full game on Guard. Some Locks-Quest style progression/story/pacing maybe.
