ONM Remembered – Miyamoto Week, day 1

“He created Mario, Zelda and Donkey Kong, and he ONLY answers quessies every month in NOM.”


from Official Nintendo Magazine issue 91 (April 2000)

Would you believe that Mr. Miyamoto was at the beck and call of every kid in the United Kingdom, and would answer reader-submitted questions every month? Given how the man was barred from interviews at one point for fear of revealing awesome ideas to the competition, it’s hard to believe he was once so accessible. Funny, that!
… and as is the nature of things, for every half-decent question, you’ve got some dope asking for exclusive insider scoops on projects that haven’t even been officially announced yet. Get used to it, there’s a ton of those in every column.
