Miyamoto to keep working should Nintendo retire him

Nintendo's main man doesn't plan on retiring anytime soon.

The man behind almost everything great at Nintendo, Shigeru Miyamoto, has stated that his best work is "yet to come" and he doesn’t plan on retiring from making games anytime soon, even if he is eventually let go from Nintendo.

"Well, I am one of the company workers and the company has to retire me some time," said Miyamoto in a recent interview with GamesTM. "So from that perspective, yes I may have to retire from Nintendo some day."

He continued by commenting on how he feels his line of work is similar to that of "aged cartoonists" who work on projects despite their old age.

"But when I look around and see how aged cartoonists continue to work on their manga and how movie directors create new movies all the time, I understand that they would never retire," he said. "And by the same token, I guess I will still be making games somehow. The only question is whether the younger people will be willing to work with me at that far point in the future."

Miyamoto’s next game, Super Mario Galaxy 2, will be coming to the US on May 23 and Europe on June 11.
