Have fun working for apple...

Beetey1610d ago

Ha ha. Seriously though, I doubt this will have any effect on the quality of Nintendo's products.

Jobesy1609d ago (Edited 1609d ago )

Nintendo franchises have been stale for a looong time. Maybe Nintendo will start to make good games again and not rely on Mario, Mario and more Mario.

Winter47th1609d ago

Things aren't looking too good for the WiiU now haha

darthv721609d ago

maybe him and krazy ken are going to hit the links (no pun intended).

Bounce ideas off each other while on the back 9.

It could happen, they are friends.

mike1up1609d ago

Yea you're right. I mean, he's only been the producer in every single hit game in the Wii's entire lifespan: Super Mario Galaxy, Skyward Sword, Wii Sports etc..

What could the creator of Mario, Pokemon and Zelda possibly know about game quality? /s

Grip1609d ago (Edited 1609d ago )

well Nintendo need that.. Nintendo must move on and not relay on person... yah i know Miyamoto is a legend blah blah but come on we need something new and new idea and new ip and refreshing!

morganfell1609d ago (Edited 1609d ago )

I have to agree with Jobesy. Although Mario and Zelda sell well and to a large audience, it is the same audience. The appeal of those games do not cut a swath across the gaming spectrum and Miyamoto does not create games that appeal to a diverse group of gamers. Sales are not innovation or breadth of appeal.

If Nintendo is going to survive they need change.

Ninty has grossly misestimated the timing for releasing the Wii U and it will not see an adoption that is even close to the Wii.

Some of this is due to the ongoing growth of the 360 and PS3 and some of it is simply bad economical timing combined with the Wii U which does little to up the ante as far as advancing gaming to a new level with groundbreaking innovation.

The 720 and the PS4 will be the machines of the future, not the Wii U.

I know you were joking, but what? Everyone knows Miyamoto has too much honor to go work at another company. He created Mario and Zelda for goodness sakes.

Beetey1610d ago

I was referring more to the "working on smaller games" thing than him literally working for apple.

dark-hollow1610d ago (Edited 1610d ago )

Geez m4g and your unfunnu jokes!
Miyamoto is a LEGENDARY developer and it is a shame that he is stepping down.

Give me one developer thay can keep TWO franchises alive for 25 years while maintaining the quality of the older titles...
But of course the n4g kids wont bother to care.

CDbiggen1609d ago

@jidery

Apart from MG, what other franchise has Kojima kept alive for 25 years?

frostyhat1231610d ago

If it wasn't for him, their was a possibility of the video game industry vanishing! Thank you Miyamoto for many hours of amazing gaming and creating the most iconic figure in gaming!

i_am_arbre1609d ago

whatever he sucked anyway

Fel081609d ago (Edited 1609d ago )

You must be new.

mike1up1609d ago

Yea you're right, he does suck. He totally wasted his life. Instead of being a genius pioneer in a billion dollar industry, he should be trolling the internet making stupid comments for attention. /s

lizard812881609d ago

He just isn't going to play a big roll anymore, he still is going to work for Nintendo.

It is like he is stepping down from being #1 to being #2. He still is going to be there, but have a smaller roll.

Truerandom1609d ago

I found it weird that Wired gets to have an exclusive reveal of him stepping down. Something that big would have came from Nintendo themselves, An official statement but their was none.

It turned out to be a big misunderstanding or a big spin of words to gain hits but who knows.

Nintendo is officially dead R.I.P:(

Game3s1610d ago

Your a good troll, now go back in your hole.

DarkBlood1610d ago

@Game3s

you do realize you make everything sound dirty? :P

RememberThe3571609d ago (Edited 1609d ago )

Trolls are under bridges not in holes.

DeeZee1610d ago

Doubt it, and he's still going to be around.

AWBrawler1609d ago

News flash Aonuma has been doing Zelda since Ocarina and Mario is handled by what's his name I forget it

mike1up1609d ago

Miyamoto always "reviews" Zelda titles before their release, and is not hesitant to make final changes. There has never been a Zelda or Mario title where his name has been absent from the credits.

AWBrawler1609d ago

I trust his pupils and dang it why haven't one of his children got into game design?

Khordchange1610d ago

Well thats upsetting, it's not like he was losing it either, super mario 3d Land and Zelda Skyward Sword were incredibly fun. I guess it's necessary to set up nintendo for the future. The day he fully stops developing will be a sad one

SpoonyRedMage1610d ago

Just going off the Iwata Asks for the two games Miyamoto wasn't that involved with either of them. Both were originally conceived by their directors whereas the norm from Nintendo EAD has been for the producers to do that so I guess they've been preparing for a while.

He's also spent the last twenty years training people like Hideki Konno, Yoshiaki Koizumi and Eiji Aonuma to take his place and they've all proved themselves.

DeeZee1610d ago

Yup, it's like Steve Jobs--he may be gone, but he built a great team and his legacy will live on through them.

PshycoNinja1610d ago

TEH INTERNETZ HAZ XPLODED!!!!!!!

In all seriousness Miyamoto not working on Mario and Zelda is a huge loss for the company but the industry does need new blood so...

2EHO1610d ago

This shows where nintendo is going. Early reports said nintendo is going with their younger developers with Wii U. I believe the Wii U is going to shock a lot of people who believe nintendo is all family friendly.

Mastarace1610d ago

They need him. Luckily their teams are great by now and learned from him.

Yodagamer1610d ago

not to mention that alot of younger talent came up with ideas for the new mario kart game and nintendo ead tokyo which is also pretty new, it is going to be interesting in the next few years :)

Barkleylola1609d ago

I think one of the younger developers could become the next, "Miyamoto"
I can't wait to see what Miyamoto does next. And to see what the younger people have planned.

RememberThe3571609d ago

You will never see mature games from Nintendo, and frankly they don't need them. Family friendly has served them very very well and just because they're getting younger doesn't mean they're going to get edgier.
