“[My future direction] is not anything I can really put into words. I’m not wholly satisfied with how things are today, but I think at the very least we’ve established a playing field where people are willing to accept it when you try something new.

Nobody knows how the next generation is going to turn out, but it’s easy to think of the customer as the main axle. I don’t directly ask our customers, but I do think about what they’d want from my perspective as a regular person, and my work stems from there.” – Shigeru Miyamoto
