I think it's pretty clear that Miyamoto is inching closer to retirement. He's already said he's trying to work on smaller projects, and prepare his teams for development without him. With consoles' lives lasting 5-7 years, could the Wii U be the last Nintendo system we see with Miyamoto at the helm of the ship?

He's already left more than enough of a legacy I think he deserves some time to relax.

The man is almost 60. With much respect to him, I do not expect him to be directly involved with the successor of the Wii U. It's possible he'l;ll have influence, but I see him leaving that up to someone else.

Nintendo usually starts developping the next system right after the release of the current one. So he may still have some influence

He will have his "influence" on Nintendo until the day hes dead, they will never let him fully retire and I highly doubt he will be able to stay away from it all himself. Dude created Nintendo, granted they already existed but he pretty much made them the power house that they are now.

I agree, he'll stop working on things when he decides to become a full time grandfather and even then he'll be called in as consultant.
Pretty much the case with Yamauchi.

The man is a full-blown senior citizen. Let him rest.
His biggest triumphs are behind him as a game creator, but he has plenty of years left to dedicate to his family.
He shaped The Nintendo Gaming company well, but he needs his time for himself now. Nintendo has proved with the latest Zelda iteration that his hand doesn't need to be shaping all the clay, for that the hands that shape it now do it in his name.
I'm certain that we all can respect and cheer for his well deserved retirement. When his great grandchildren are around, they'll be playing games influenced by him because a good idea never dies.

The man did good.

He won't stop until he's incapable, same with Miyazaki.  In Japan you don't just retire when you hit 70 unless you really want to or need to.

I'm sure there are plenty of incentives offered for it to be worth his while to continue.  It's also in his character to carry on as long as he can.

Really though how could be possibly top what he's accomplished in life?  I think he's left his legacy and some of the games and innovations he helped create I just can't imagine being possible to beat.

Oh yeah getting hit by a car is so mysterious.  Shrouded in such secrecy.

was late on his "protection fee" payment?  I love the d-pad....and the original gameboy although the resolution is terrible but that's not his fault.
