It's been more like Shigeru Miyamoto Life around these parts this week, with Nintendo's legendary designer hitting the headlines for his apparent — though later rescinded — announcement of his retirement. He's still a fun lovin' kind of guy though, as these photos of him sat in a real-life Mario Kart prove.

Miyamoto was in Canoga, California's Westfield Topanga mall — judging by the photos he may have been the only one — as he was in town for the Spike Video Game Awards.

Enjoy these photos of Miyamoto in a Mario Kart and anticipate future memes arising from this very moment.

I hope He got to take it for a spin seeing as they are real working go carts.

That kart looks ridiculously big for him! Too bad it didn't have a built-in glider, but that looks very cool.

I'm guessing the designers needed to make it bigger to house the engine and what not. Think of a bike but with 2 extra wheels I suppose. :3

No matter how many times I read "Photos of Shigeru Miyamoto Sat in a Real Life Mario Kart" all I can imagine is that someone took a photo of Miyamoto and then placed it into a kart, though clearly these are photos of Shigeru Miyamoto sitting in a kart. Surely there was a better way to word that!

By the way, I think the karts are oversized so that someone in a Mario mascot costume (which has a huge head) would look proportional sitting in them. Just sayin'.
