Wii U controller would make Metroid better, says Miyamoto

Nintendo's Shigeru Miyamoto wants two games most of all for the Wii U: Metroid and Star Fox, especially.

"With Metroid it's very easy to imagine some interesting implementation for Wii U," Miyamoto told IGN. "I think that having another screen with the gyro built in really gives you a lot of interesting opportunities for development, and we can bring a lot of our games to life in a completely unique way with that.

Miyamoto "personally" looks forward to a new Star Fox game, if one is made for the console. Is he dropping a hint, or just thinking out loud?
