Smiles & Tears, With Lyrics
It’s been the talk of Mario and EarthBound fans for the past couple weeks – Shigesato Itoi interviewed Shigeru Miyamoto about Super Mario Bros. stuff, with the series’ anniversary happening and all.
Normally Nintendo President Iwata does the interviewing, but this time the interviewer role went to Itoi. A lot of people have asked why Itoi would do this, but this is actually one of THE main things he does for a living. He pretty much talks to people non-stop and posts transcripts of the discussions on his company’s website every day.
Anyway, although it’s not really MOTHER/EarthBound-related, it’s still an interesting read, so check it out if you haven’t already. I’ve noticed a lot of people are surprised or amused by the things Itoi says – that’s actually the norm for him, though. Even the infamous Giygas and boobs interview goes to show that he’s very candid and has a unique style when it comes to interviews. It’s a shame I don’t have the time to translate any more of his stuff – almost all of his discussions are really interesting to read!
