Turns out controversial SEGA mascot Shadow the Hedgehog has a high profile fan – Shigeru Miyamoto expressed excitement to the press, today, that the recent SEGA buyout would let him finally get his hands on the best-left-forgotten character.

“It’s been a dream project of mine for years and I’m intrigued by the possibilities,” said the creator of Donkey Kong, through a frankly bewildered translator. “I ask myself, Shigeru, what are the different things a gamer can do while controlling a hedgehog who shoots guns? And then I never stop coming up with ideas. Because... I mean... He’s a hedgehog. Hedgehogs shouldn’t have guns! Who's idea was that? That guy was a genius, yo. Like, on the same order as the guy who came up with the Doritos taco.”

Asked what the nature of the game would be, he added: “Mostly shooting things.”

Reached for comment, fellow Nintendo designer Takashi Tezuka added, “This is a sad story. It’s well known around the Nintendo offices that Miyamoto-san has been huffing paint, lately. So I’m afraid he’ll say anything, right now. Take it from me, though. That game ain't happening. Shadow still sucks.”

I bet this game will be better than Wii Music.

I always felt that game had room for potential, glad to see it's being tapped, I think the gunplay would benefit a lot from some staples of this generation like a cover system. I also don't recall any turret or helicopter set pieces in the original Shadow - get to work, Shiggy.

Anything would be better than Wii Music. The original is better than Wii Music.

Wii Music is so bad, even Wii Music is better than Wii Music.
