    Will Shigeru Miyamoto Retire From Nintendo To Create Mobile Games?

    Will Shigeru Miyamoto Retire From Nintendo To Create Mobile Games?

    By Chris Buffa, Editor in Chief
    Published April 24, 2012



    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.

    Then again, perhaps he feels there's nothing left to prove to Nintendo fans and decides to not only retire (that day's coming whether you like it or not), but also work on projects without the hassle of deadlines and upending tea tables. Imagine the sorts of games he'd produce if the guy had nothing but time to make them great.
    Why do we bring this up? Because there's been a tiny shift within the gaming community that'll eventually make serious waves throughout the industry. People have left seemingly great jobs in the hopes of trying something different, with mobile playing a huge role in their decisions.


    Just look at Ryan Payton. Here's a guy working at Microsoft's 343 Studios on presumably the biggest game of 2012, Halo 4. Last fall, he leaves to form Camouflaj, and recently pitched an iPad adventure called Republique, which may or may not become a smash hit success.
    What about Robert Bowling? With Infinity Ward, he played an integral role in the Call of Duty franchise. What's he up to today? Getting the word out about his new studio, Robotoki, which will unveil a project for iOS, Android and next-generation consoles later this year.
    Then we have the outspoken Peter Molyneux, who created the well-received Fable RPGs. Despite co-founding Lionhead Studios in 1997, he'll eventually begin a new phase of his development career at 22 Cans, where it is rumored he'll work on mobile content.


    In other words, three departures no one saw coming, and there will be more.
    We can debate Miyamoto's status and overall talent compared to the aforementioned three, but there exists the possibility that he too will set off on his own without Mario, Link and Donkey Kong. He's already told Nintendo to prepare for his retirement, and recent comments about his affection towards Angry Birds imply he plays mobile games, or at the very least, has seen them in action.


    None of this confirms his future, of course. For all we know, he briefly played Angry Birds on a plane before handing device to someone else. If anything, he's more likely to retire and take on that consulting role with Nintendo than strike out on his own and risk alienating fans. His ties to the company are too strong.
    On the flip side, we have no idea what's going through his mind, which only makes pondering Miyamoto's future all the more interesting.

    Now this is a interesting thought and i wonder if it could happen

    Hell no, if he leaves Nintendo its probably for retirement from the business altogether considering the amount of money he's made.

    Lol no. The reason he gives is to have freedom to do what he wants with no deadlines and not "upend tea tables". The man has no deadlines already. They give a date for a game? If he doesn't like it, they just delay it. Look at the Zeldas that have been delayed. And the reason he upends tables is because he calls all the shots. The man is untouchable at Nintendo. I really don't see this happening.
    Thanks to THUGGEDOUT for the sig, The Black Wolf for the av.
