I thought Miyomoto was head of Nintendo.

@  MoKat : (10 December 2017 - 12:55 PM)

Time did an article on Iwata that nicely sums up who he was, Shadow (http://time.com/3954...o-satoru-iwata/)

@  Uncle Ben : (07 December 2017 - 07:12 PM)

Depends, but they can be the same here too

@  furrykef : (07 December 2017 - 02:49 PM)

I don't know about "usually", although this does seem to be the case for Japanese companies. In large American companies, I think it's more likely they're different people.

@  Uncle Ben : (07 December 2017 - 10:10 AM)

President/CEO are usually the same title

@  Uncle Ben : (07 December 2017 - 10:10 AM)

Both

@  Misk : (07 December 2017 - 08:58 AM)

CEO, IIRC.

@  Quickster : (07 December 2017 - 02:21 AM)

Satoru Iwata was, I believe, the previous president of Nintendo.

@  Shadow : (06 December 2017 - 10:06 PM)

Sorry, but who is Iwata?

@  Uncle Ben : (06 December 2017 - 08:40 PM)

He did a small part of the programing from his hospital bed until he couldnt

@  Uncle Ben : (06 December 2017 - 08:39 PM)

He worked on the Switch until the very end

@  Misk : (06 December 2017 - 08:17 PM)

I did believe him when he said he was a gamer at heart. That's a lot more that can be said for a lot of game execs.

@  Misk : (06 December 2017 - 08:15 PM)

I've criticized him a lot, in the past. And I still do stand by them. But it was never anything personal, and though I believe he made some very questionable decisions during his tenure, I don't think I ever doubted that his heart was in the right place.

@  Misk : (06 December 2017 - 08:14 PM)

Wow. I can't believe it's been that long, either.

@  Uncle Ben : (06 December 2017 - 04:55 PM)

55 when he passed.

@  Misk : (06 December 2017 - 04:03 PM)

He was that young?

@  Uncle Ben : (06 December 2017 - 01:40 PM)

Today would have been Iwata’s 58th Birthday

@  Uncle Ben : (05 December 2017 - 01:06 PM)

We've tried too with varying degrees of success

@  Uncle Ben : (05 December 2017 - 09:46 AM)

No.

@  Sandata : (05 December 2017 - 03:34 AM)

...Any way to minimize that preview? Sorry

Negotiations between Nintendo and Illumination have gone on for more than a year, and coincides with a deal struck last year for Universal theme parks to build attractions based on the Mario Bros. property. The video game’s creator, Shigeru Miyamoto, is expected to be a producer on the film and have a say in the creative development, alongside Illumination’s CEO Chris Meledandri. The film is still in the early stages of planning and wouldn’t come out for several years, and would be animated at Illumination’s Paris-based studio Mac Guff.9

Is it bad that I liked the one with Bob Hoskins and John Leguizamo? It's one of those movies that I know is bad, but I like it anyway. Dune comes to mind. Well hopefully with Miyamoto having a say it won't suck.

I'd say this movie is coming out in 2022; 2021 if we're lucky. Maybe we'll see a few original characters, and an accompanying game.

Sayonara, Archie Sonic the Hedgehog comics... Hello, IDW Sonic comics!

 

Only two more years until the Sonic movie... Two! That's like a sixth of a dozen, man!

 

It's high time I got an avatar...
