Shigeru Miyamoto behäver väl knappast någon närmare presentation efter att ha skapat ändå hyggligt kända spelserier som Mario, Donkey kong och The Legend of Zelda - bara för att nämna några. I en ny bok om Nintendos tidigare chef Satoru Iwata, kallad Iwata-San finns tyvärr ej översatt ännu), har Miyamoto nu berättat mer om sin vänskap med just Iwata.

Via Dual Shockers får vi veta att Miyamoto bland annat reflekterar över deras första lunch ihop (ramen) medan Iwata fortfarande jobbade för HAL Laboratory:

"Nintendo doesn't pay for social expenses, so we had to go Dutch on the bill. That became a tradition that lasted even after he became company president and I became an executive."

Miyamoto berättar även att de varje måndag delade med sig av sina idéer över en lunch:

"Normally, if someone younger than yourself with fewer years of experience becomes president, it might be difficult to get along with each other, but it was never like that. It had been obvious that he was more suited for the position (than me), so it never became a problem. I think it allowed us to naturally become true friends."

När det kommer till Iwatas alldeles för tidiga bortgång år 2015, säger Miyamoto såhär:

"Nintendo has been doing just fine. He left many words and structures that live on in the work of our younger employees today. The only problem is that, if there is some good-for-nothing idea I come up with over the weekend, I have no one to share it with the next Monday. That I can no longer hear him say 'Oh, about that thing...' is a bit of a problem for me. It makes me sad.

To me, he was a friend more than anything. It never felt like he was my boss or that I was working under him. He never got angry; we never fought about anything."

Gamereactor hade en artikel där vi tackade av Iwata två veckor efter att han gick bort i cancer. Vill du läsa och minnas denne legendariske ledare och människa, så kan du göra det här.
