Shigeru Miyamoto on Game Head

Shigeru Miyamoto Picture

Last night, Spike TV aired a tribute to Nintendo’s Shigeru Miyamoto on their television show, Game Head. The show contains interviews with Miyamoto himself, Kotaku, and a slew of other Nintendo-influenced internet celebrities. The show is very interesting, and contains quite a bit of information on Miyamoto-san’s early days at Nintendo working on Nintendo’s early arcade games, as well as his contributions to the industry with the Mario Bros. and The Legend of Zelda series.

The episode is now available for viewing online at GameTrailers.com.
