Earlier today Miyamoto was rumored to be leaving Nintendo and was suggesting that he would work on smaller and more independent projects according this his interview with Wired, but thankfully this is not true and Miyamoto is not going anywhere according to an official statement from Nintendo saying that Wired misunderstood Miyamoto’s Interview completely.

Miyamoto is not going anywhere after all folks. Earlier today Wired posted an interview which suggested that he might be leaving his current post in Nintendo to work on smaller and more independent projects rather than continuing at Nintendo. Nintendo released an official statement within a couple of hours ruling out the interview stating that Miyamoto is NOT going anywhere at all and that Wired simply misunderstood what Miyamoto meant to say in his interview.

Miyamoto was simply suggesting that he wants to help in training the younger generation for the years to come. I for one am happy that the news proved to be false and really hope that Miyamoto works on more Mario, Star Fox and Zelda games for the future with the Wii-U coming out next year.

A Nintendo Spokesperson addressed the reuters by stating:

“This is absolutely not true. There seems to have been a misunderstanding. He has said all along that he wants to train the younger generation. He has no intention of stepping down. Please do not be concerned.”

So once again guys Miyamoto is here to stay and you can expect more from him in the years to come.
