    I really do think it would be nice to have Miyamoto work on smaller projects in more of a designer role. He’s become such a big picture figure at Nintendo, producing so many different titles, that his ability to invest his all in a game is pretty limited. I hope that he gets to explore his creativity more directly in his last years at Nintendo.
