Katsuhiro Harada, director on the Tekken series at Namco, has recently tweeted that Masamichi Abe is working on an original Nintendo title!
Abe, who was a designer for Pikmin, Pikmin 2, Metroid Prime: Hunters and Mario vs Donkey Kong: Minis March Again, is said to be “in Nintendo Kyoto now” by Harada. The tweet itself, which was reported by Polygon, can be viewed below:

Abe worked alongside Harada on Tekken and Tekken 2. But the prospect of an original Nintendo game is certainly exciting, especially with Shigeru Miyamoto working on a secret project! Could the projects be one and the same?
What kind of game do you think this could be?
