Happy birthday, Miyamoto!
Shigeru Miyamoto, the father of such franchises as Mario, The Legend of Zelda, Pikmin, and many more, turns 71 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, which he’s already been working on for 10 years now. There’s no doubt Miyamoto has plenty of years ahead of him in the game industry, and we can’t wait to see what he does!
