Mario creator Shigeru Miyamoto plays Mario Maker with some fans.
Best E3 photo, hands-down.
I can’t get over how great this photo is.
This photo almost makes me cry, both in happiness and—admittedly—a little jealousy. Pretty much everyone knows I love Mario, and most people know I love Mario a real REAL lot to the point where maybe it’s kind of weird. But I’ll never be able to explain just how much I love the franchise, the effects it’s had on my life, and what it means to me. I didn’t know who Shigeru Miyamoto was until sometime in the early 2000s when I finally had internet access and immediately used it to look up all the Nintendo stuff I could. Prior to that, Mario was a character that just existed and I accepted that. But seeing the man behind him (and unbeknownst to me until that moment, several other series I enjoyed) was incredibly inspiring. Since learning about him, his ideas, the way he thinks, and gazing at little drawings he’s done over time, I’ve always wanted to meet him somehow, even if just for a very brief moment to shake his hand and say “thank you” (and maybe get a little doodle from him, I would never need anything else in my life after that). The very thought of that gives me chills. So imagine how amazing it must be for these kids and other people attending E3 to meet the creator of one of the most iconic series and characters of all time and actually make Mario levels with him! Because that’s always something I’ve wanted to do as well. I love playing around with level editors in other games, and when I was little I used to draw my own levels in notebooks. I don’t know if I’ll ever get to meet Mr. Miyamoto, but at least that second dream will soon come true.
