Profile of Shigeru Miyamoto
Miyamoto attended the Kanazawa Municipal College of Industrial Arts and Crafts, graduating in 1975… Mario was called simply “Jump Man” in the original incarnations of Donkey Kong… In a 2003 interview with Nintendo’s official magazine, Miyamoto said, “What’s kind of a mystery is, why did I title the game Donkey Kong? The main character, the player, was Mario. That much was decided. But really Donkey Kong’s personality was the most fleshed-out of all of them. I really think it’s best to name a game after its strongest character.”
