Miyamoto Discusses Inevitable Retirement, Encouraging Younger Staff To Step Up
Posted on Wednesday, March 6 @ 13:23:25 PST by Alex_Osborn
WhileMariomastermind Shigero Miyamoto may still have the heart of a child, he's been in the business a very long time and his retirement is a disheartening inevitability. As such, the company is trying to lean less and less on his constant guidance to prepare for the future.
Speaking withGameSpot, Miyamoto explained:
This year I’m past 60; I’m going to be turning 61 this year. So for me to not be thinking about retirement would be strange. But in fact, the number of projects I’m involved in--and the volume of my work--hasn’t changed at all.He then went on to explain how Nintendo is structured in such a way that the much of the staff tends to rely on him too much for direction, and he wants to change that. "For a long time I’ve been thinking that we need to try to break that structure down so that the individual producers that I’m working with are really taking responsibility for the projects that they’re working on.”
A Miyamoto-less Nintendo is an awfully scary thought. Let's hope his departure from Nintendo comes later rather than sooner.
