The New York Times has published aglowing article praising Shigeru Miyamoto, labelling him the "WaltDisney of the digital generation."

Inresponse to the comparision, Miyamoto remained modest. "What'simportant is that the people that I work with are also recognized andthat it's the Nintendo brand that goes forward and continues to becomestrong and popular," he told The New York Times.

"And if people are going to consider the Nintendo brand as being on thesame level as the Disney brand, that's very flattering and makes mehappy to hear."

Miyamoto also reflected on why his work haschanged direction since the days of Mario 64 and Ocarina of Time. "Iwould say that over the last five years or so, the types of games Icreate has changed somewhat," he said.

"Whereas before Icould kind of use my own imagination to create these worlds or createthese games, I would say that over the last five years I've had more ofa tendency to take interests or topics in my life and try to draw theentertainment out of that."

Miyamoto also touched upon WiiMusic. "We're trying to create an experience where people are verysimply able to get the feeling like maybe they're creating music," hesaid.

The New York Times added, "while popular music gameslike Guitar Hero and Rock Band allow players only to recreate cannedtunes, Wii Music will try to enable users to capture the feelings ofcomposition and improvisation."
