Whilst Nintendo firmly squashed those Miyamoto retirement rumours that infiltrated the web last year, the man himself has told El Mundo that Nintendo must prepare themselves for his eventual retirement. Miyamoto told the publication that he’s currently in the process of giving the talented individuals who work under him much more responsibilities.
“We all get older. I’m already about to turn 60,”
“In recent years I’ve been telling people within Nintendo [that] I’ll have to retire at some point. We must be prepared. That’s why I given more responsibility to younger colleagues.”
