Miyamoto stepping down from his position at Nintendo

Quote:
Shigeru Miyamoto "Retiring" From Current Position, Sticking With Nintendo

News

In a shocking bit of news, legendary game designer Shigeru Miyamoto has revealed that he is going to step down from current position as the head of Nintendo's game design department to go back into development with a focus on smaller projects.
Speaking with Wired's GameLife blog, Miyamoto explained the big news:
"Iím not saying that Iím going to retire from game development altogether. What I mean by retiring is, retiring from my current position.... 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."
How small is he talking? According to the interview, he's "not intending to start from things that require a five-year development time." Miyamoto is hoping that his first new project, which he hasn't started work on yet, will be ready to show off before the end of 2012.
Miyamoto is credited as one of the main creators behind many of Nintendo's most beloved franchises, including Mario, Donkey Kong, and The Legend of Zelda. Whatever his new, smaller project entails, Miyamoto states several times during the interview that he wants to work with smaller teams of younger developers.
It will be a while before we fully understand what this change means for both Miyamoto and Nintendo as a whole, but here's hoping the great game designer still has some exciting future classics in him, even if they are smaller projects.

I'm pretty confident that the Mario and Zelda franchises will do fine without him, as I'm also anxious to see what his "smaller" projects will turn out.

Thoughts?

PS. If you find the title misleading, please feel free to change it mods

I think he's influenced enough of Nintendo's like-minded developers that he's able to give up the position. The people who take his place will always try to take after him, but adding their own signature style to the product, which isn't a bad thing since Nintendo often received complaints about having 'samey' games.

it would imply that he's moving away from those core franchises, yes.
Mario and Zelda will never be a 'small' title
he just wants to make games like he used to, before he had to keep making sequels. i dont blame him.

I'm very happy. Even if it's just a small project, I'd love to see what Miyamoto can cook up when he isn't restricted by a known franchise. I'm not saying he'll make some godly game that will reinvent the wheel, but I think we'll definitely get something well-made and off-color (Pikmin was mentioned so you should know what I mean).
