Today's Shigeru Miyamoto news shows that not even the biggest names in development are around forever. One man, though, plans on sticking around forever. One very brown man.
That man is of course Yakuza and Super Monkey Ball's Toshihiro Nagoshi, now 46, who in an interview with Gamasutra, said, "It's not that I'm satisfied at Sega so much as I really owe one to Sega—they taught me how much fun making games can be. I doubt I would leave this company in 10 or even 20 years."
"Unless something really drastic happens, I'm not going to leave on my own volition."
You hear that, Sega? If you want rid of the man, you're going to have to force him out.
