Back in 1992, Shigeru Miyamoto was interviewed by Famicom Tsuushin upon the release of The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past. Now a full translation of that revealing interview is online thanks to the efforts of Shmuplations.com. Here are the five most interesting quotes pulled from out of time….
We know how clickbaity that title is, and how usually such headlines almost never measure up to their content. But this time, we’re pretty sure there are at least five new facts about the original Donkey Kong game you don’t know…because Miyamoto just revealed them to Wired Magazine in an article that was published today.
In honor of the 30th anniversary of Super Mario Bros (which happens to be today), as well as the release of Super Mario Maker, the UK arm of Nintendo has released a new video starring Mario’s creator, Shigeru Miyamoto.

Still bummed out that Nintendo never spoke a word about their mysterious next-gen console, codenamed the NX, at E3 2015? If you are, someone really should’ve told you beforehand that they specifically said they wouldn’t be talking about it. In a way, though, they did break that promise.

After a long drought of animals in spaceships, we know we are getting more StarFox, and soon. Miyamoto confirmed in an interview the game was slated for later this year and would be playable at E3.
The Associated Press recently conducted an interview session with Shigeru Miyamoto, a man who needs no introduction if you’re the type who looks for websites with names like “PopGeeks.” It’s one of the better interviews with Miyamoto, or any video game high-up, because it dispenses with the “how great are you” suck-ups and gets right to real consumer questions. That usually doesn’t happen.
