Today marks the fifth anniversary of Pokemon Go, and Niantic's mobile game has found a lot of fans since its release back in 2016. Apparently, Mario and Zelda creator Shigeru Miyamoto counts himself among those fans! During Nintendo's recent shareholder meeting, Miyamoto and several other Nintendo employees were asked about their favorite games. The legendary creator cited PAC-Man and Tetris as two games that have influenced his career, before revealing that Pokemon Go is a more recent favorite of his. Apparently, Miyamoto has been playing the game for the last two years alongside his wife and friends from their neighborhood.
"I'm currently hooked on Pokemon GO. This game, which I'm playing with my wife, is a dream come true of playing a game with my whole family," said Miyamoto. "I've been enjoying Pokemon GO with my wife and neighborhood friends for some two years now. The average person playing Pokemon GO in Japan is probably around 60 years old (laughs)."
