Legendary video game designer Shigeru Miyamoto has reiterated Nintendo’s core objective when it comes to developing games. Mr. Miyamoto stated in a recently published interview that the main concept revolves around bringing family and friends together in the living room, which has been the Kyoto-based company’s goal for a long time. A number of games have accomplished this task including Wii Sports, the Mario Kart series, the Mario Party series and Smash Bros etc. It seems these core values have not changed, despite Mr. Miyamoto taking more of a back seat role at Nintendo.
“For Nintendo, the idea of games is something that brings the family together in the living room and interact and [act], as mentioned, like a connective tissue. And when we’re talking about games, it really just happens in the living room.”
