Miyamoto Discusses His More Hands-Off Role At Nintendo

Posted on Wednesday, September 25 @ 07:37:44 Eastern by Alex_Osborn


Shigeru Miyamoto, the mastermind at Nintendo behind iconic franchises like Mario and Zelda, has been shifting to a more hands-off approach as he passes on the bulk of the management to other rising stars at the company.

Speaking with ONM, Miyamoto discussed his changing role at the Big N, saying: 

As you saw at our presentation at E3, Mr Aonuma chased me off stage... he doesn't need me any more! The final responsibility for the title still comes down to me and I'm still involved in the games, but I'm definitely able to leave the series up to him in a way.

I don't have to look at every minute detail of every game any more. I know there's going to be the level of quality that we expect under his supervision.

Similarly we have Koizumi-san, who's the producer or the Mario series and it's the same type of situation. And certainly Konno-san with Mario Kart, too. And Mr Eguchi, producer of the Animal Crossing series. These are the main producers that we've trained who are talented enough and we can allow them to oversee the project and manage all the details and still maintain the Nintendo level of quality.

Are you concerned to see Miyamoto continue to pull further and further away from these key franchises, or are the likes of Aonuma and Eguchi more than up to the task of filling his shoes? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
