Viva Miyamoto! Nintendo Legend Receives The Prince Of Asturias Award In Spain
Yesterday Shigeru Miyamoto received the prestigious Prince of Asturias Award for Communication & Humanities in Spain.
Upon receiving the award Miyamoto had this to say:
“I am very honoured to have received the message that I was chosen to receive the Prince of Asturias Prize for Communication and Humanities.”
“Creating video games is very much a team effort, which is why I feel so humbled to be chosen for this honourable award. I would therefore like to receive the award on behalf of all of my friends and colleagues with whom I have been creating video games over the years.”
“I will continue my efforts so that video games will continuously be able to offer fun and joy to people of all generations all around the world.”
The foundation was set up in 1980 to encourage and promote scientific, cultural and humanistic values that “form part of mankind’s universal heritage.”
