Wow, I guess a lot of people didn't know how young Sakurai was when he joined HAL. I guess that's how nerdy I am about Nintendo and their employees.

I'd assume most people don't even know the names of the employees, let alone their ages



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

He is parent of Keanu Reeves.



duduspace11 "Well, since we are estimating costs, Pokemon Red/Blue did cost Nintendo about $50m to make back in 1996"

Mr Puggsly: "Hehe, I said good profit. You said big profit. Frankly, not losing money is what I meant by good. Don't get hung up on semantics"

I at least know the names Shigeru Miyomoto, Koji Kondo, Takashi Tezuka, Bill Trinen, Reggie Fils-Aime, Shigesato Itoi, Jen Taylor, Leslie Swan, Katsuya Eguchi, Howerd Lincoln and of course Sakurai.

Yes, I think a more "nintendo" approach rather than a "sakurai" approach will lead to a more balanced character roster (i.e. not dark pit) and less troubles with deadlines due to Sakurai trying to personally oversee all aspects of the game. Hes tired of working on the series anyways.
