Shigeru Miyamoto (宮本 茂 (Miyamoto Shigeru) is a video game designer and producer, creator of The Legend of Zelda series.


During his childhood, Miyamoto enjoyed exploring the countryside and caves around his home, which inspired the creation of The Legend of Zelda. He joined Nintendo in 1977, where he began developing arcade games. While still working in Super Mario Bros. for the Famicom, Miyamoto began developing The Legend of Zelda as a launch title for the Dysk System.[1] Since then, he has worked as the producer of every game in The Legend of Zelda series.

  2. "You may recall that the opening sequence to The Wind Waker starts off with a mandolin that's played and that's actually sampled from Mr. Miyamoto playing." —Eiji Aonuma (The Legend of Zelda producer talks about the game, the franchise, the past and the future.)
