Miyamoto not stepping down - Nintendo

by Ben Salter Featured 4 Comments 26 Votes 960 Views 08/12/2011 Back to News

Nintendo has denied reports that Shigeru Miyamoto is retiring from his position as Senior Managing Director and General Manager of Nintendo's Entertainment Analysis and Development Division to work on smaller projects. However, he will spend less time developing games in the future.

"This is absolutely not true. There seems to have been a misunderstanding. [Miyamoto] has said all along that he wants to train the younger generation. He has no intention of stepping down. Please do not be concerned," a Nintendo of Japan spokeswoman told Reuters Japan.

However, Miyamoto's focus will change, reports Bloomberg.

Remaining as Senior Managing Director and General Manager of Nintendo EAD, Miyamoto will spend less time developing games to increase his focus on training younger developers.
