Shigeru Miyamoto revealed that before making video games, he wanted to write and draw manga. The legendary Nintendo designer acknowledges that it’s his job, as a video game designer, to create fun and unique experiences for consumers. Miyamoto claims that the thought of people being surprised by his works encourages him to continue with his job.
“I think my starting point was I wanted to write and draw manga. Basically, this hope of mine materialised in game creation. So, to put it very simply, it’s my job. My driving force is that I really love surprising people, creating fun experiences and moments for them, [and] finding ways to help them enjoy themselves.”
