Miyamoto wins top Spanish prize

Looks like Shigeru Miyamoto has another award to add his ever-growing trophy case.

Miyamoto: 3DS Launch Needed More Mario

Shigeru Miyamoto has stated, in a recent interview, that Nintendo did not properly advertise the unique features of the 3DS.  Features such as Augmented Reality and other installed apps should have received more focus.  He also stated that he was disappointed with the launch line up.  What would have made the line up better? More Mario Titles, of course! It does seem that Nintendo’s number o...

Miyamoto Jealous That He Didn’t Invent Angry Birds, Maybe a Time Machine Will Be His Next Project?

Shigeru Miyamoto has a lot to be proud of.  He created some of the most beloved video game characters in the universe, yet he has one regret.  He wishes that he had invented Angry Birds.  How can such a simplistic mobile game create a hint of jealousy when you are the father of such iconic characters such as Zelda/Link, Donkey Kong and Mario? Now Miyamoto did not actually say the word “jealo...

The truth about Miyamoto’s employment: Keeping seniority but making indie games

The revelation last week that Miyamoto was demoting himself to focus on smaller games was only half true. By now, most of you know the demotion part was “sarcasm lost in translation,” Nintendo says. But all indications suggest Miyamoto indeed wants to focus, if not work alongside, smaller and younger development teams within Nintendo, instead of the upper-level oversight roles he̵...

Miyamoto thinks it would be a good idea to remake A Link to the Past…do you?

The Guardian today has an insightful interview with Miyamoto up. What got my attention was the discussion of how a remake to A Link to the Past would be just fine by him. Are there any plans to adapt other older Nintendo games for the 3DS console? Not really. We would like to create more new titles. For example, this year we are making Super Mario 3D, but it’s not really a remake of [the Wii...

Miyamoto’s 3DS Super Mario Bros. title will be out “ASAP”

Has infamously pro-3D Shigeru Miyamoto (as in Mario 64, not silly glasses) finally come around on the resurgent 2D platformer? Perhaps he has, if recent Iwata Asks interview answers are any indication. “In the interests of adopting new technology for the Super Mario Bros. tradition, I am now making a new Super Mario Bros. game for the Nintendo 3DS,” he said, adding that he wants the game to be...

Miyamoto on the 3DS, Zelda, and More

IGN AU: How long has the 3DS been in development? What’s the process behind the scenes? Shigeru Miyamoto: Basically the way it works is – once we’ve finalised the design for a new hardware system and we’ve launched the hardware system, the hardware teams immediately begin research on what the next system will be. So it’s been – I don’t know how long – I guess ab...
