Submission + - Miyamoto Steps Down ( 2

RobinEggs writes: Nintendo's Shigeru Miyamoto, the creator and producer of the Zelda and Mario franchises among other works, is stepping down at Nintendo.

After personally managing Nintendo's blockbuster franchises for ~20 years, Miyamoto said today: ""What I really want to do is be in the forefront of game development once again myself. Probably working on a smaller project with even younger developers. Or I might be interested in making something that I can make myself, by myself. Something really small."

  • He's been a major figure at Nintendo a lot longer than 20 years; Mario Brothers came out in 1983, and he was already earning some recognition before that. Typo.

    Excuse me while I commit Seppuku.
