Shigeru Miyamoto’s current mystery project will most likely prevent him from heading development on the next Mario game, the developer told French website GameKult.

According to Miyamoto, he would rather focus on smaller projects right now rather than head another large-scale one. In addition, his current project—a yet announced game—is as consuming as development of Super Mario 3D World, and as such severely restricting his availability. But despite that shift in focus, he would always remain as a producer on series like Mario and keep close watch over development of its gameplay.

“Creating a title the caliber of Super Mario 3D World takes a lot of energy and there is little chance that I could take the time to work on the next Mario,” Miyamoto said (translated through Google Translate). “However, I want to get involved again and more thoroughly in the development of smaller projects, but that does not mean it will be a very modest title only for download or such thing. It is not impossible for me to present you a new game as the main producer in the future, but even when I’m not directly in charge of a project, I always look at what the teams are doing in terms of gameplay and I trust them.

“Do not worry about Mario.”

Said next Mario game, Super Mario 3D World, arrives on Wii U November 22.
