Miyamoto reveals the series that will be the company's first experiment

During an investor presentation at E3 2013 last week, Nintendo revealed that it was looking into creating its first free-to-play game, but wouldn't be using popular franchises like Pokemon or Mario for the title. In an interview with IGN, Nintendo guru Shigeru Miyamoto said that the company is working on a multiplayer Steel Diver for the business model.

"There is something we're doing with the Steel Diver idea that I think is going to open things up with that game... It's going to be very fun. We're exploring from a perspective of where we can take that from a multiplayer standpoint - it's going to have this four-player battle mode that I think is going to be very interesting," Miyamoto said.

The company is still looking into how the free-to-play aspect of the game will work. Miyamoto and his team are working to balance the pricing model against the game's entertainment value.

"It's something that we're hoping to be able to show relatively soon," Miyamoto said.
