Nintendo Legend Shigeru Miyamoto Plans to Change Generations – SHOCK2

Shortly before his 72nd birthday, Shigeru Miyamoto, the legendary creator of video game icons like Super Mario and The Legend of Zelda, outlined his plans for the future. Nintendo’s longtime creative director has spoken of passing the responsibility of game development to a “younger generation.”

Although he has already reached retirement age, Miyamoto stressed that he is not ready to retire yet. At the company’s annual shareholders’ meeting on Thursday, he commented on his health and future plans.

“I know you’re worried,” Miyamoto said, according to a translation. VGC“Since I'm the oldest now, it scares me a little. But I feel comfortable in the company.”

He described the transition as smooth, but noted that his successors were also getting older.

“I haven't completely stopped developing the game, but I'm no longer involved in the daily work and will leave it to the younger generation,” Miyamoto said. “The transition is going well, but even those to whom I have handed this task are getting older. That is why I want to pass the baton on to even the younger guys.
