About This File

As always, Famimaga is printed Japanese-style and read from right to left, so you'd better switch to Japanese/manga mode if you want the facing pages displayed in the right order.

This issue has a Q&A with Shigeru Miyamoto about the just-released The Legend of Zelda.


That's him on the left.  "Miyahon" is a joke, or at least what passes for one in Japanese.  You see, his name is written 宮本 in kanji, and the second kanji (by itself) can be read as "hon," meaning "book."  It's a real knee-slapper if you happen to be Japanese, I bet.

The other interviewee is "Ten Ten," the co-designer of Zelda, Takashi Tezuka, but I don't know his nickname is also a hilarious play on the kanji in his name or not, because I still haven't recovered from the wackiness overload of "Miyahon" to be able to try to figure it out.

Miyahon.  Video gaming's gain was standup comedy's loss, I'm sure.

Still, the man is a legend.  I'm sure there's a nugget or two of invaluable wisdom to be gleaned from the interview.


"Often I'll see advertisements for p--- games and they say, Try Not To C--,' but then when you play the game, it seems like the object is to c--. So yes, I would call that bad game design." -Shigeru Miyamoto On his revolutionary career at Nintendo CICKHOLE
