62 years ago today, a legendary boy was born. Little did he know, when he was in the delivery room, that he was going to bring gaming out of dark times and give life to several beloved characters. The include an Italian plumber, a young Hyrulian hero, and a huge team of little plan men and women. I am of course talking about Shigeru Miyamoto who turned 62 today [technically yesterday according to Japanese timezones]!

We at NintyBuzz wish him a belated happy birthday and we hope he continues to create amazing games for years to come.

I am a huge Nintendo fan, hence why NintyBuzz exists. I especially love all things Zelda and Metroid. NintyBuzz was started by me back in the Summer of 2014, it started out mainly as a hobby, though the site has gradually grown, and I hope it grows for many years to come!
