Shigeru Miyamoto and his video game characters

Shigeru Miyamoto has just won the prestigious Spanish 2012 Asturias Communication & Humanities prize.

Nintendo’s computer games creator from Japan was awarded the Prince of Asturias Award with Jury President Adela Cortina Orts saying:

“Shigeru Miyamoto is a key figure in the video game revolution, both didactic and constructive. And a designer of games and characters recognized around the world, and known for being non-violent.”

The Euronews announcement goes on to lists his most recognizable work as Super Mario, Donkey Kong, The Legend of Zelda, Star Fox, F-Zero, and Piiiiikmiiiiin. Definitely some of my childhood and current favorites! ๐Ÿ™‚

Here’s the TV news report about Shigeru Miyamoto winning the Asturias Communication & Humanities Prize.
