UPDATE: Miyamoto Isn't Retiring as Nintendo Lead
Posted on Thursday, December 8 @ 08:40:39 Eastern by Nicholas Tan
UPDATE: Reuters reports that a spokeswoman for Nintendo has denied Miyamoto's retirement, stating: "This is absolutely not true. There seems to have been a misunderstanding. He has said all along that he wats to train the younger generation. He has no intention of stepping down. Please do not be concerned."
Miyamoto will step down eventually. Surely not now. But eventually.
ORIGINAL: Quick! Get some green mushrooms in here, stat! Miyamoto will live forever! I swear it!
Okay, don't freak out just yet. When Miyamoto said that he would be retiring in a Wired interview, he meant it in a different way, a half-step if you will:
Miyamoto, at the age of 59, understands in his omnipotent wisdom that he won't be around forever, and after nurturing all of Nintendo's developers for such a long time, he feels confident that they will carry on the Nintendo name... in due time:
Miyamoto plans to create a game on a much smaller scale that will take about a year to make. Perhaps this is a mobile game or a little 3DS title. Whatever it is, I'm glad he isn't gone just yet.
