A day hopefully far off
Shigeru Miyamoto is no doubt the biggest face at Nintendo. He’s the most well-known name and is the man behind absolutely iconic franchises. The man still has plenty of time left on his tenure at Nintendo, but there will be a day when Miyamoto steps away. What will Nintendo be like when Miyamoto eventually moves on? The man himself has shared some thoughts on the topic.
Miyamoto stopped by NPR for a quick chat about his work, motivations and more. During the interview, Miyamoto was asked what he thought Nintendo would be like when he eventually steps away from the company. You can see Miyamoto’s full comments below.
You know, I really feel like it’s not going to change. It’s probably going to be the same. There’s, you know, people on the executive team, creators within the company and also people who create Mario, they all have this sense of what it means to be Nintendo. And so it’s not like there’s a lot of different opinions that go back and forth. Everyone has an understanding, this kind of shared understanding, of what it is to be Nintendo. And so even when there’s new ideas that come up, there’s always the fact that it’s a new idea, but also the fact that, is it a new idea that really has the essence of Nintendo or not? And I think that’s something that, you know - we have this incredible shared vision, almost a little scary shared vision, about this. So I think there won’t - it’s not going to change.
