Shigeru Miyamoto has said that Nintendo's recent lack of games being released is due to being fully focused on the development of hardware but they are ready to start developing and releasing games once again.
Miyamoto had this to say about the lack of recent first party games: "We spent a lot of time developing 3DS, for games for the future, so from now on I think we’ll focus more on gaming and we are releasing lots of games this year."
We have also been told to expect more 3D remakes of games making their way to the not-yet-released 3DS eShop which is expected to come via a system update in the next few months. When asked about this, Miyamoto replied “Personally speaking, because it’s [for] 3DS, it’ll be 3DS-specific, unique and immediately suitable for 3DS. With downloadable games via eShop we will start to create meaningful and high-value games for 3DS specifically.”
Not only this but Miyamoto has put hope into the eShop saying he would not object to any of Nintendo's top franchises making their way to the eShop, so long as they would not be second rate and would work effectively saying “I think if it’s meaningful for 3DS. For me it’s important that anyone can play, and that it’s easy and comfortable for anyone - it’s not forcing a game into the hardware itself.”
