It's no secret that Shigsy is getting long in the tooth, in a recent Q&A with Nintendo, President Satoru Iwata was asked about finding a successor to such a gaming genius:
"Certainly, when it comes to identifying and verbalizing some of the important major findings, not many people can easily succeed him. For example, who other than Shigeru Miyamoto could declare that weighing yourself every day must be fun for everyone? However, the fact that Nintendo software is always full of unique and fun ideas attests to the fact that we have many good game creators. Together with Shigeru Miyamoto, all of them have been making Nintendo software. So, I've always thought that we foster game creators here at the company".
Mr Miyamoto is currently 56 years old and has been the driving force behind a large number of Nintendo's hit games.
