Nintendo and it's mascot Mario are very popular and well-known in the video game world, but still, neither Nintendo nor Mario are as big as Disney. Now the creator of Mario, Shigeru Miyamoto, has explained to Nikkei Asian, why Nintendo is not, and may never be, as big as Disney.
"Many parents want to keep their children from playing video games. But these same parents have no problem allowing them to watch Disney movies. --- We cannot seriously challenge [Disney] unless parents start feeling comfortable about their children playing Nintendo."
In other words, according to Miyamoto, Nintendo and its video games are not as widely accepted by the general public as Disney movies are. Do you agree? Leave your comments below.
