Sources close to Nintendo are claiming that Shigeru Miyamoto has been banned from speaking about his hobbies in public.
This shock news comes from the fact that any inside glimpse into the man's lifestyle could potentially be worth billions to competitors. Many of Nintendo's successful franchises in recent years have been inspired by what Shigsy gets up to in his free time.
Ideas for Pikmin originated from his love of gardening. Nintendogs arrived when he began taking care of a puppy. Donkey Kong hit the scene after he was convicted of fondling monkeys (not really). Wii Fit and Wii Music also came about from his personal interests.
So what's next from Miyamoto? Anything's possible.
