Just how much did Miyamoto have to do with Donkey Kong's creation?Click Here to View Story
As far as any of us know, Shigeru Miyamoto was one of the driving forces behind the creation of Donkey Kong. That's how Nintendo history goes and that's the information we've been fed for countless years. What if all that talk wasn't the full story?
Some interesting information has popped up concerning the development of Donkey Kong. It seems that Ikegami CO. was involved with the creation of the game in a big way. Ikegami went so far as to sue Nintendo for Donkey Kong Jr., as it used the source code that Ikegami CO. claimed to create back for Donkey Kong.
Believe it or not, Nintendo actually settled with Ikegami CO. over the issue. Since that happened, it seems that all information has been swept under the rug. Has Miyamoto been unwillingly entered into revisionist history?
