Nintendo might not be relying solely on existing franchises as its bread and butter forever. New statements from Shigeru Miyamoto indicate the company is developing some new ideas, and we could see it as soon as next year.

In an interview with Famitsu (translated by Kotaku), Miyamoto discussed how he's been working on a new title. He wouldn't offer many details, but said after Mario Kart 8 releases in 2014, the Wii U would have a good rounded library of known franchises. With that in mind, Miyamoto believes it's time to bring something new to the fold.

The last entirely new concepts Miyamoto helped release were the Wii series, which included Wii Sports and Wii Music, but he's been active with existing brands like Mario and Zelda with each new entry, too. There's plenty to keep him busy for the rest of the year with a lot of (hopefully) quality Wii U and 3DS titles yet to come, but we're definitely intrigued by the idea Miyamoto has something new up his sleeve.

What do you hope to see next from Nintendo?
