A great honor for Shigeru Miyamoto: the legendary developer and creator of Mario, The Legend of Zelda and many other franchises and characters, is to be recognized in Japan as a Person of Cultural Merit. This is an official, government-sanctioned honor and recognition which is awarded annually to people who have made outstanding cultural contributions. Previously, many actors, scientists and authors have been awarded that honor, but Miyamoto is the very first video game developer to receive it. Miyamoto said the following: “I’m thankful that light is being shined upon the genre of games.” He also thanked his co-workers: “This is a job where you can’t do anything by yourself.”
