(amongst others) creator Shigeru Miyamoto
was in Paris to promote the launch of the Nintendo 3DS as a guide in the Louvre
. While company executives have previously dismissed
and decried smartphone gaming
, Miyamoto was asked about his favorite non-Nintendo game and for the first time, admitted that Angry Birds
is his favorite. He said that he can tell Rovio
is "having fun developing the game" and that it has a "very creative side," that was "inspiring us to try even harder, and create even more unexpected new things." Except for those moments when he steps into the hallway for a spot of pig-smashing, as you do.
