Shigeru Miyamoto, the father of such franchises as Mario, The Legend of Zelda, Pikmin, and many more, turns 70 years old today!

Miyamoto-san was born on November 16th, 1952, and has worked at Nintendo since 1977. In his time, he’s helped develop some of the company’s most iconic series. Today, he is Nintendo’s ‘Creative Fellow’, a role that sees him wearing many hats within the company.

Miyamoto-san’s latest project is as a producer for the upcoming Super Mario Bros. movie, set to release in April of 2023. He also recently announced Pikmin 4, set to release sometime next year.

Steven Bagley of @Mario_Museum, dedicated to preserving Nintendo history, has put together a lovely tribute to Miyamoto-san. You can check it out in the thread below!
