Shigeru Miyamoto doesn’t like comparisons to Steven Spielberg

Nintendo sport director and Mario creator Shigeru Miyamoto has stated he doesn’t like being referred to as the Steven Spielberg of video video games.

The designer, identified for creating franchises like Super Mario Bros., The Legend Of Zelda and Star Fox, mentioned the comparisons to Spielberg throughout an interview with Gamespot.

“As you said, I’ve also been called the Spielberg of the game world, but I actually don’t like that,” Miyamoto stated. “I’m Miyamoto. Miyamoto is Miyamoto and Nintendo is Nintendo. However I do really feel very honoured to be in contrast with Disney.

“But with that stated, moderately than evaluating Nintendo to Disney, I really feel that Disney to some extent, particularly for households, [represents] a way of reassurance for households.

“I feel like Nintendo is well known for video games and usually video games don’t equate to reassurance very much. But Nintendo is associated with video games and the fact that Nintendo is then being compared to Disney really gives me the [confidence] that we’ve gotten to a point where we can bring Nintendo to the concept of reassurance and perhaps [give that] reassurance. So that’s something that I really feel like we were able to achieve and I’m happy about.”

Miyamoto launched Super Nintendo World in Universal Studios Hollywood final week, the primary to be opened within the US after the unique park debuted in Japan in 2021. Additional parks are deliberate for Universal resorts in Orlando and Singapore.

The designer is a producer on the upcoming Super Mario Bros. Movie, a collaboration between Nintendo and Illumination (Despicable Me). The movie’s voice solid consists of Chris Pratt, Anya Taylor-Joy, Charlie Day, Jack Black, Keegan-Michael Key and Seth Rogen.

The Super Mario Bros. Movie is launched in cinemas on April 7.
