Nintendo's Shigeru Miyamoto, creator of Super Mario Bros. and The Legend of Zelda among other titles, put in a surprise appearance at a Koei press conference in Tokyo. Left, Shigeru Miyamoto is not pictured.
Koei is releasing Samurai Warriors 3 on the Nintendo Wii, and Shigeru Miyamoto was on hand to talk about the Mysterious Murasame Castle mode in the game.
Edo-era Mysterious Murasame Castle was developed by Nintendo for its Famicom Disk System. The title was never released outside Japan.
Nintendo has been expressing renewed interest in the property as of late: a Mysterious Murasame Castle song appeared in Super Smash Bros. Brawl and a character from the game popped up in Wii title Captain Rainbow.
