It seems like Mr. Iwata can not stop asking questions. After his long question and answering sessions with Brawl developers. Mr. Iwats has moved on to his next game Mario Kart Wii.
Today, I would like to “ask” three individuals who were in charge of the development of Mario Kart Wii. Many Mario Kart games have been released over the years, and this will be the sixth game in the series. Super Mario Kart1
, which was the first in the series, went on sale 16 years ago, back in 1992. At the time, even though I was so busy at HAL Laboratory with my work that I could barely go home, I remember going to the store to purchase a copy on the day it was released and then making time to play. Let’s begin with a self-introduction by Konno-san.
||Super Mario Kart: The first game in the Mario Kart series. Released in Europe in January of 1993 for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System.
Hi, I’m Konno from the Entertainment Analysis and Development Division’s Software Development Department. I worked as producer on Mario Kart Wii.
Konno-san has been developing games since the days of the original NES, but this is the first time he has appeared in Iwata Asks.
I’m pretty nervous. (laughs)
