July 12, 2007 – IGN recently asked famous Nintendo producer Shigeru Miyamoto whether or not the publisher had thought about internally developing a sword fighting game with one-to-one controls – something Wii fans have been clamoring for – and he hinted that some talks had taken place. In fact, judging by the phrasing of his response, Nintendo may already have a game underway.”We haven’t announced anything, so I can’t speak about any particulars, but we do have a lot of ideas about how we could potentially use the Wii remote for something like that,” Miyamoto told us.

He also pointed to Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games as a project that may potentially include such a feature. “There will be some fencing in Mario & Sonic at the Olympics. I don’t know if I’m supposed to say that, so if I’m not, I’m very sorry, SEGA,” he said, laughing.
