Nintendo It is one of the most recognized companies in the world when it comes to video games. To their credit they have sagas such as Super Mario Bros. O The Legend of ZeldaMore than emblematic titles that have not only managed to conquer the hearts of the players, but have also influenced projects developed later. But, What are the favorite games of the main managers of the company? That’s the question posed at Nintendo’s 81st Annual General Meeting of Shareholders, and answered by top company figures such as Shigeru Miyamoto o Shuntaro Furukawa.
The bosses Nintendo share their favorite games
It is an obvious question, but it seems that it had never been raised at Nintendo’s meeting with its shareholders. Current Nintendo Chairman Shuntaro Furukawa, Senior CEO Ko Shiota, Senior CEO Shinya Takahashi, Senior CEO Satoru Shibata and legendary designer Shigeru Miyamoto have been commissioned to deliver what are your preferences when choosing a video game to have fun. The answers are not in themselves too surprising (considering who we are talking about), but there are some curious details:
Furukawa: “Super Mario Bros. It was released when I was in high school, so I was right in the middle of the Famicom (NES) generation. Even today in my private time I play various video games, both from Nintendo and other companies. I play most of our own titles, but recently I have been playing a lot of the card game Clubhouse Games: 51 Worldwide Classics de Hanafuda “.
Super Mario Bros., Mario Kart Live, Yuyuki, adventure games and more
Shiota: “Like Mr. Furukawa, I was part of the Famicom generation and grew up with the NES and SNES. I am now in charge of the hardware, but I have played with the hardware and ever since I’ve been interested in how things work. That probably explains why I gravitate towards games like our recent product. Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit, I play with my children. “
Takahashi: “I’m in charge of all of our first-party software, so it is difficult to choose one game over another. But the first game I played when I joined Nintendo was Yuyuki for Family Computer Disk System. It’s a lesser known adventure game, but it made a bigger impression on me because it was the first title I was involved in. “
“I am currently hooked on Pokémon GO”
Shibata: “I like adventure games, and recently finished Famicom Detective Club: The Missing Heir Y Famicom Detective Club: The Girl Who Stands Behind for Nintendo Switch. In the past, I really loved to play Shin Onigashima for Family Computer Disk System. I’m in charge of the Licensing Division, which serves as the point of contact for software publishers, and they also have a lot of adventure games that I enjoy. “
Miyamoto: “Basically, I usually play the games that I created myself, so the games of other companies have not influenced me much. That said, the first game that influenced me when I started development work was Pac-Man, and from a design perspective, I think TETRIS it is wonderful. I am currently hooked on Pokmon GO. This game, which I am playing with my wife, is a dream come true of playing a game with my whole family. I’ve been enjoying Pokmon GO with my wife and neighborhood friends for about two years. The average person who gambles Pokmon GO in Japan he’s probably around 60 years old (laughs). “
We would give anything to see Miyamoto fight for Gyms in Pokmon GO and go looking for PokParadas in your neighborhood. You are probably on the lookout for recent updates to the game: Niantic Labs has begun to remove the modifications made to adapt to the coronavirus pandemic, and is already preparing a special event for its fifth birthday. We are sure that Miyamoto is not going to miss it.
