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.?
