Mario’s papa Shigeru Miyamoto celebrates his birthday

After joining Nintendo in 1977, Shigeru Miyamoto has seen pretty much all of its successful videogame history. This guy made Mario. This guy made Zelda. From creating Donkey Kong on arcade machines all the way to seeing Breath of the Wild and the Nintendo Switch, he is an institution.

So join us here at PT in wishing him a very happy birthday. Shigeru Miyamoto’s birthday is on November 16. That makes him a Scorpio. And you know what they say about Scorpios… brave, loyal, honest, and intelligent, but also suspicious, envious, and possessive. Do you know who shares all those qualities? Mario. That’s no coincidence, buddy.

Do you know when Mario’s birthday is? October 11. And you know what they say about October 11… it’s the US national holiday General Pulaski Memorial Day (not to be confused with the state holiday Casimir Pulaski Day in Illinois, nor the Sufjan Stevens song… that’s in March, friend). Maybe, just maybe, Mario respects his serviceman. Anyway, we love Miyamoto, we love Mario, and we love dates. So head below for a quick history lesson.
