Games icon not yet ready to resign, but is passing responsibility to younger colleagues
Shigeru Miyamoto is helping foster a new generation of games developers within Nintendo as age begins to catch up on the talismanic games designer.
Months after Nintendo tried to calm investors from anxieties over Miyamoto’s retirement, the games designer has again been questioned on his long-term position.
"We all get older. I'm already about to turn 60,” he told Spanish national paper El Mundo.
“In recent years I've been telling people within Nintendo [that] I'll have to retire at some point. We must be prepared. That's why I given more responsibility to younger colleagues.”
But Miyamoto reiterated that he is not yet ready to quit, and that previous claims suggesting otherwise were the result of a “misunderstanding”.
