In an interview with IGN, Shigeru Miyamoto talked about his love for the mustachioed hero. While he’s been around for over 30 years, Miyamoto still believes that there is a lot of possibility left for Mario. Check out the full interview with Miyamoto here.
“As a child I wanted to be a manga artist, and as a manga artist usually you have this symbolic character that’s yours. And you try to use that character in many different stories and episodes that you create, almost like how Hitchcock is in every one of his movies. For me, Mario is that, and I want to create as many different games as possible using Mario. And I still think there’s a lot of potential and possibility left.”
