Miyamoto Steps Down as Head of Nintendo EAD

In 2013, Nintendo has big plans to restructure their companies.
One of the biggest changes in Nintendo’s restructuring is that Shigeru Miyamoto will be stepping-down as head of Nintendo EAD. (Industry, Nintendo, Shigeru Miyamoto)

Before anyone starts with their comments, he's not leaving Nintendo, read the damn article.

"Miyamoto will now be leading a group of young talent in developing small-scale games. He also still holds a seat on the board in Nintendo which will allow him to maintain a small amount of influence over Nintendo and their future titles. It is unknown at this time what plans Miyamoto has for the future of the games he helps develop."

But I do think it's great that he is passing his knowledge onto other aspiring game designers. He can't work at Nintendo forever. But there's no denying the man has done great things for Nintendo and for gaming and we wouldn't be were we are without him.

As much as it pains me seeing Miyamoto step down, two things look highly appealing to me.

1. The notion of him working on smaller games with smaller teams gives him an Indie kind of freedom to experiment with the games and hopefully bring in some new fun mini IPs to Nintendo.

2. The notion of handing EAD over to someone new is also appealing in a sense that we will have something new and fresh on our Nintendo buffet.

Exciting times for Nintendo and i cant wait to see what they have planned! =D

I wouldn't call Tezuka "someone new". He's worked with Miyamoto for decades.

Good news indeed. I mean with his old, stale, outdated ideas. And boring, repetitive games... He's well past his sell by date.

Really though its just time for Miyamoto to step aside methinks. Now I admit he's given us countless hours of joy throughout the years, but IMO he lost his touch years ago now. I think this is the right move for Ninty to make.

So, you come to a gaming site, and dis the godfather of gaming....the creator of Mario, Donkey Kong, Zelda....the single most influential person in the history of video games. I am no Nintendo fanboy but if you don't respect this man, you are NOT a gamer.
