In his award acceptance speech at CEDEC, Japan’s biggest developer conference, Shigeru Miyamoto said today that he wants to keep pushing forwards. God love him.

“I think, even as I get older, I want to keep striving,” he said. “I think anyone who still has the opportunity to work still feels that way.

“Honestly, as society recognizes gaming bit by bit, I think we should all do our best so that the game business flourishes and the number of the children who want to enter the industry multiplies.”

Watch for new of the Nintendo legend’s keynote tomorrow. From Famitsu, via Kotaku.
