Last day of work. I took a selfie in front of the empty desks (referring to telecommuting). When I think I’m not going to come in here anymore. I miss you so much…
The 54-year-old is one of Nintendo’s greatest figures, as the artistic director who joined Nintendo in 1989 is behind many icons in the video game world. During his 32 years of activity within the Japanese company, Takaya Imamura conceived a certain Fox McCloud, the emblematic figure of the saga StarFox Adventures, but also Captain Falcon from F-Zero, or Tingle from The Legend of Zelda : Majora’s Mask.
