The contribution of Shigeru Miyamoto to the world of technology is gigantic, and his legacy with Nintendo it will get bigger and bigger as time goes on. But there will come a time when you will have to say goodbye to the company: He is 70 years old and has been linked since 1977 to the present.
What will the future of Nintendo look like? after the departure, when it occurs, of Shigeru Miyamoto? The creative answered this and other questions in an interview with NPR, Shared by Nintenderos.
For Miyamoto, nintendo won’t change when he dies or decides to step down as the company’s creative advisor.
“You know, I really feel like it’s not going to change.” Miyamoto said about Nintendo. “It’s probably going to be the same. There are, you know, people on the executive team, creators within the company, and also people who create Mario. Everyone has this sense of what it means to be Nintendo.”
The success of the company is enormous, always thanks to the foundations established by Miyamoto, the “Walt Disney of video games”, in its origins. The Japanese praises the uniformity of the company.
“It’s not like there are a lot of different opinions that change a lot. Everybody knows, that kind of shared knowledge, what it’s like to be Nintendo.”
“That’s why, even when new ideas come up, there’s always the fact that it’s a new idea, but also the fact that it is a new idea that really has the essence of Nintendo”, Miyamoto points out. “And I think that’s something that we have, this incredible shared vision.”
Among Shigeru Miyamoto’s most brilliant works at Nintendo are (chronologically speaking) Donkey Kong, Mario, The Legend of Zelda and Star Fox.
From video games, many of these productions went on to series or movies, making Nintendo grow more and more as a company. By 2023 it is expected the animated film of Super Mario Bros., which for many aims to be the great success of the year.
