Miyamoto loves puppets

One of Shigeru Miyamoto’s obsessions before getting into video games was the world of puppets. The man behind the Mario and Zelda franchises was a huge fan of British science-fiction television series Thunderbirds.

In fact, his hobby influenced his work: Thunderbirds inspired the Star Fox puppets, and the puppet alter-egos of Nintendo’s “main men” (Iwata, Miyamoto, and Reggie) we saw at E3 can be con considered Muppets since they were made by the Jim Henson Company.
