Shigeru Miyamoto is a Japanese video game producer, and manager of Nintendo Entertainment Analysis and Development. He is well-known for producing the Super Mario, Legend of Zelda, Star Fox, Donkey Kong, F-Zero and Pikmin franchises, some of the most popular, influential, and critically acclaimed in the industry.
Shigeru Miyamoto joined Nintendo in 1977, and he has made many innovations in the video game industry. He was once called the father of modern video games. His franchises have made billions of dollars, and some of his games are considered by many to be the greatest of all time. Super Mario Bros. is one of the best-selling in history, and played a huge part in saving the industry from the crash of 1983. Another example is Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, which has received very high review scores from both critics and gamers. Shigeru’s creations (and therefore, Shigeru himself) are the origins of the Mario and Zelda internet subcultures.
Super Mario is a video game series started by Shigeru. The first game to feature the protagonist (Mario), Donkey Kong, was released in 1981, and the famous Super Mario Bros, a 2D sidescrolling platformer, was released in 1985.
The Legend of Zelda
The Legend of Zelda is an action-adventure video game series created by Shigeru and Takashi Tezuka. The games center around Link and his quest to rescue Princess Zelda from the antagonist Ganon.
