Miyamoto Wants to Be Mister Miyagi When He Retires

Posted on Tuesday, May 3 @ 13:06:59 Eastern by Blake_Morse

Beloved Nintendo icon Shigeru Miyamoto has had a hand in creating some of the most well-known gaming characters in history; you know, the elf and the plumber. But he's not going to be making games forever. One day he will ride Yoshi off into the sunset of his golden years. When he does though, he hopes to pass the torch to a new generation of game developers by becoming a teacher:

“When I leave the company, I would like to work with young people and teach them about developing... Though it wouldn't be like [traditional] teaching, more explaining how we think and how we interact with the user... For the development process, practical learning is important.”

I can picture it now. Miyamoto snatching flies out of the air with DS Styluses, making students do crane kicks while standing on Wii balance boards. And he'd still love his students, even if they did lose to Cobra Kai Dojo. It'd be the best school ever! 

Sadly, my fantasy of having him teach me the ways of the master developer (and calling me "Blake-San") will not come to fruition any time soon, as he has no plans to retire in the near future. I guess I'll just have to wait him out. C'mon, old man you can't work forever.
