The creator of Super Mario Bros. and The Legend of Zelda will step down from his current position at Nintendo but remain with the company to work on smaller, more personal projects, Wired.com has learned.
Exactly. I imagine it must be suffocating for someone as creative as Miyamoto to be restricted to refining well-established major game titles like Zelda and Mario. It doesn't give him much flexibility. It will be refreshing for him to relinquish those titles and start with a black slate; I can't wait to see what comes out of it.
