Shigeru Miyamoto (Japanese: 死博士 or 宮本茂; born November 16, 1952) is God's right hand man who is trying to enlighten the world through cute, family-friendly video games. Due to his psychotically artistic nature, he insists on putting the utmost effort into his games, even if they take decades to complete, and also insists on creating the world's most creative systems to play games with, even if they turn out to be casualized turds.
Born in the Mushroom Kingdom with a Large toadstool woman as a mother and a television as a father, Shaggy fell through a warp pipe at the age of 3. He lived in the sewers until the age of 23. He dealt some sweet Legend of Zelda-style ass kicking day and night on hordes of Giant Piranha Plants, Goombas , Bob-ombs, Koopas, and high voiced reptiles called Yoshis with his most prized possession the Master Sword for nothing more than scraps of decayed McDonalds quality bird meat he looted off the corpses of the desert avians called Kleptos, who were located in that sewer for no apparent reason. It continued for 20 years when Shigeru Miyamoto decided sewer life was not the life for him for him. Leaving this dark land where thick bass pumping music was played night after night he left for the golden city of Japan which fortunately was directly above him. There he became addicted to magic mushrooms and karaoke until landing him a job at the local vegetarian food processing plant Nintendo which he thought was a strip club. Closely thereafter, Miyamoto was contacted by God, telling him that through him, he would bring the age of happiness. Miyamoto was then given God given powers, with the ability to turn anything he touched into a successful video game series.
He did not realize these powers until after he had shaken hands with his Twin Italian plumbers, his Green Clothed Newspaper boy, his |wife (while she was in a prototype of a new Nintendo Robot suit that granted the wearer to become a ball) and his son's little pink stuffed ball. After finding these powers out, he now wears Power Gloves, except when he sees something with potential.
Many people believe that Miyamoto is indeed, on mushrooms, because of his likewise addicting games. This is not so, this is strictly the will of God.
When Miyamoto told the reporter at the NYT that the new Nintendo console would cost $250USD, the reporter asked why it was $50 higher than previous Nintendo consoles. Miyamoto said it was due to differences in the exchange rate. So the reporter said "Fluctuations?"
Miyamoto replied "Fluck you Amelicans too!"
He is known infamously for keeping features of his new games secret. This has saved Nintendo from devastation countless times. For instance, while working on his new game Super Mario Moonshine, Miyamoto had enough foresight to hold off on revealing Mario's revolutionary water pack in the game. As soon as the water pack was finally unveiled, Microsoft made a mad dash to implement a similar water pack device into Halo 2, but they didn't have enough time, and Super Mario Moonshine was already on the way. It was in Miyamoto's childhood that he learned to be so fearful of others stealing his things. At the fragile age of 7 years old, Miyamoto had his mother stolen from him by a man named Sonny, and later his dogs and little brother were kidnapped by a man named Michael Shoft. This trend continued throughout his life. As most people know, Miyamoto is the grandfather of video games, and in fact every single video game idea ever was originally his. He made these ideas only to have them rampantly stolen from his Idea Bong next to his bed.
After the release of Super Mario Galaxy, Miyamoto's life was thrown upside-down once again, this time by religious fanatics. The game had spawned a new religion known as Rosalinaism and its adherents believe that he is, in fact, their prophet for creating the game. Miyamoto denied this several times, but the damage was already done. Since October 2008, there's a sign in his front yard that reads "Rosalinaists, I'm not your Rosalinadamn prophet!"
The Great Pakistan invasion and Alcoholism
During the mid-90s Miyamoto had captured over 300,000 komoto dragons off the coast of Tazmania. Such a large amount of lizards could not be kept away from Shigeru's dream of invading Pakistan. On January 14, 1996 Miyamoto's forces seized the capital but was later defeated several times in the following months. Many casualties led to the "pull-out" on June 22, 1997, during this time Miyamoto gave into his craving for Jack Daniel's and scotch. This he admitted in a 2002 interview was "a dark time" in his life.
