Miyamoto is said to get most of his inspiration from real life events. Yoshiaki Koizumi sometimes takes a little different approach.


“Occasionally I also take images from dreams. Perhaps I am a little bit different from Mr Miyamoto in that sense.

“So if I could just give an example of one of those idle daydreams that turns into an idea for a game, I would look up at the moon and think about what would happen if the moon started to fall towards Earth. From that idea we moved onto the world in Majora’s Mask which is threatened by being destroyed by the moon.”
