RobinEggs (1453925) writes "Nintendo's Shigeru Miyamoto, the creator and producer of the Zelda and Mario franchises among other works, is stepping down at Nintendo.

After personally managing Nintendo's blockbuster franchises for ~20 years, Miyamoto said today: ""What I really want to do is be in the forefront of game development once again myself. Probably working on a smaller project with even younger developers. Or I might be interested in making something that I can make myself, by myself. Something really small.""

He's been a major figure at Nintendo a lot longer than 20 years; Mario Brothers came out in 1983, and he was already earning some recognition before that. Typo.

Excuse me while I commit Seppuku.

Oh, you're too harsh for yourself. Another custom originating from Japan, bukkake (as a recipient), will suffice.
