Miyamoto: Nintendo making Zelda title “easier”

Shigeru Miyamoto is talking, again, and today the topic of conversation is Zelda. Specifically, the next Zelda title and its difficulty. You see, there exists in Nintendo a worry right now.

So, Miy...

Let the good times roll: Miyamoto shuns retirement, wants to make games forever!

At 57, Shigeru Miyamoto is nearing retirement age. But thankfully for Nintendo fans, he claims to be one of those old farts that never throws in the towel. “I may have to retire from Nintendo some day. But then I look around and see how aged cartoonists continue to work and how movie directors create new movies all the time… By the same token, I guess I will still be making games someh...

Miyamoto critical of Nintendo, circa 2009

Nintendo’s 2008? Great fun. Nintendo’s 2009? Not fun enough, says Shigeru Miyamoto. Now, I think he’s just being modest and typical Miyamoto, but if I must: I’ll admit that if I take don’t consider Muramasa, New Super Mario Bros. Wii, Wii Sports resort/MotionPlus/Tiger Woods 10, and the half dozen WiiWare titles I bought last year, I’m inclined to agree with the...

Miyamoto “devoting” most of his time to education

Instead of Mario and Zelda, Miyamoto says he’s spending more of his time on edutainment now. You know how it goes: you get old, so you try to make up lost time by dedicating yourself to more important causes. In Miyamoto’s case, that would be education. “That is maybe the area I am devoting myself (the) most,” he told The Associated Press this week, when asked about his des...

New hardware, MotionPlus game mentioned by Miyamoto

“Did I do it again? Did I let something slip?! I just get so excited!” As the recipient of a “Special Achievement Prize” during a symposium at the 13th Annual Japan Media Arts Festival on Saturday, Shigeru “loose lips” Miyamoto had time to spill two tidbits of information while up on stage.

Miyamoto not a fan of licensed game engines

You wanna know why Nintendo games look different? It’s partly because they don’t license the same graphics engines as other developers, says Shigeru Miyamoto, the king of color. “In the video games industry, it seems that the majority of companies are heading in the same direction, taking advantage of identical technologies,” he told The BBC. “They are simply trying t...

Miyamoto says Nintendo probably wouldn’t hire him today, given his humble education

When Shigeru Miyamoto joined Nintendo as an artist in 1977, he did so after graduating from some no-name community college.

At Nintendo, even Miyamoto’s mistakes become games

So, funny story, dear Infendo readers… It seems that the golfing game in Wii Sports Resort was a bit of a mistake. Wasn’t supposed to be there. Sneaked passed the goalie. An “oops baby,” if you will. How? Well, in a story that’s only possible due to the sheer power wielded by Nintendo’s Shigeru Miyamoto, the golfing game makes a reappearance in the Wii Sports fr...

Miyamoto sorta kinda teases Kid Icarus title something

Shigeru Miyamoto, ever the distributor of quirky quotes and often a disseminator of info that the PR folks at Nintendo probably aren’t totally prepared he give out as soon as he does, is talking Kid Icarus this week. NP: And, of course, I have to ask: have you given any thought to putting a new Kid Icarus game on Wii or DS? Miyamoto: Wait, please. I’m really surprised how popular that ...
