Mr. Miyamoto has shared his love of Minecraft and says that its success has been nothing short of astonishing. He says that he has tried to create builder titles in the past but they just haven’t turned out to be as fun as Minecraft, which is credit to the developers over at Mojang, who have perfected the formula.
Nintendo Miyamoto: Minecraft's huge success is astonishing. Thought of builder games in the past, but couldn't make them fun to play.
