Will Shigeru Miyamoto Retire From Nintendo To Create Mobile Games?

Chris Buffa (Modojo): What are the odds Nintendo's Shigeru Miyamoto develops video games for smart phones and tablets?

If you think there's no way he leaves the big N to release games for different platforms, we don't think you're crazy. If anything, we're the ones who sound deranged. If we had to guess, Miyamoto will eventually retire and spend the rest of his days with his family while doing consulting work for Mario and Co., occasionally designing small games and apps for the publisher's future hardware, whatever it may be.

Lol Shigeru IS Nintendo, they're next to nothing without him to be honest. o_o Well, to be more specific, they'd be next to nothing without HIS franchises.

Aren't the games he make very similar to mobile games anyway?

Have you never played Skyward Sword, his most recent game? If you think that is anything like a mobile game, something is wrong. It is a very in depth and innovative game. His games have always been much more than any of the mobile games. He has created some of the best video game franchises ever.

I have played skyward sword and its a frustrating mess. Other than the bland environments and story, the control scheme is bad. I know a lot of wii fanboys cry out in disgust when confronted with the truth about the wiimotes motion controls being worse than tradition analog controllers. majority of the games on the wii would have been better if they used the traditional two analog stick controllers.

But there's a lot of other influential developers that reside at Nintendo.

Takashi Tezuka
Masahiro Sakurai
Genyo Takeda
Michael Kelbaugh

Just to name a few.

Oh I know there are some others Nintendo has, I'm just saying without a franchise like Mario, do you think Nintendo would be as huge as it is today?

Master Miyamoto the Lord and Savior of great innovation.

Wherever he may go after Nintendo, he will transform that said place into a legendary powerhouse with his graceful touch. The workers of that said company will have no choice but to kneel before his stroll down the red carpet to innovate a new product.

With that said no he is not going to mobile.
