When Shigeru Miyamoto eventually leaves Nintendo, how will the company cope? Well, in a Q&A session on Nintendo’s Japanese site, president Satoru Iwata explains that although it will be a big loss and that only a handful of people can succeed him.
Certainly, when it comes to identifying and verbalizing some of the important major findings, few people can easily succeed him. For example, few people other than Shigeru Miyamoto can declare that weighing yourself everyday must be fun for everyone. However, the fact that Nintendo software is always full of unique and fun ideas attest to the fact that there are many good game creators at Nintendo. Together with Shigeru Miyamoto, all of them have been making what are called Nintendo software. So, I have never thought that we have not fostered game creators at the company.
