Miyamoto will work on Sonic & Mario

"Certainly there and involved"

Nintendo and SEGA have confirmed to GamesIndustry.biz that Shigeru Miyamoto will have a hand in the development of forthcoming title Mario & Sonic at the Olympic games.

"When Mario is involved, Mr Miyamoto is never very far away," said Nintendo's European marketing director, Laurent Fischer.

"He's working on a large number of titles and he's delegating to the producer, but he's always there... The game is being developed by SEGA, but we are used to Mr Miyamoto going and following up with the team.

"He's joining the discussion, it's a relationship - he's not directing the game, he's just there in the discussions. Mario is there so Miyamoto is there; it's a natural thing."
