Have you ever wondered what the creator of Super Mario and Nintendo God Shigeru Miyamoto might have looked like in his younger years? Well, here you go!
A photo shared by Nintendeal on social media reveals Miyamoto's appearance many years ago - back when he had long locks of hair. Some fans have even labeled him a "rockstar".
He's also known to play guitar and was the guy who came up with Wii Music, so...we suppose calling him that makes sense.
Some follow-up tweets have enhanced the original photo and others added colour - as you can see above and below:
What do you think of Miyamoto in his younger years? Is this what you imagined? Share your thoughts down below.
Man, I hope I age as well as he does.
I wouldn't have recognize him.
The Legend himself.
He kind of looks like Robin Shou (Liu Kang) from Mortal Kombat '95
Oh my lord he looks like he’d be in the Gerogerigegege.
Hahaha the internet is a strange place. Of course restoring old photos of Miyamoto is probably more worthwhile than animating lightsabers being held by cats.
This must have been back when he was married to John Lennon
"Video games are bad for you? That's what they said about rock n' roll."

@KillerBOB oh no you didn’t…
Well, yes, he looked hot
Wow. He's even more godly back then! Must have been a fan of Beatels!
Huh, good for him. He was a good looking dude. Right on sir.
Jim Morrison hair. I’m jealous xx
@KillerBOB That is one of the few truly amazing comments I have seen on this website
@Avol nah its only because of the hair. He does look like a actor or model though.
Watch it not even be him lol
@Avol I see it.
@Avol yeah he does actually 👍👍
And he still looks the same, the only difference is his hair 🤣
Man why do asian people never age? I met a guy who was like in the 60 and i seriously thought he was around my age (36)
What magic potion do they have in their food? Lol.
@Avol That's who I thought it was for a sec when scrolling my Twitter timeline.
Definitely Jim Morrison vibes. People are strange
Mr. Miyamoto with long hair? I dig it.
Wow. He was very good looking in his youth.
This is why many Japanese developers don't like social media. Come on people, this is creepy stalker territory! Leave the man alone!
Remember that story of him smoking cigarettes in the room with the Starfox guys, rambling about trees? This picture helps me visualize it.
Lmao, no need for reading more comments here.
Now this looks like the man that dreamed up eating mushrooms that make you grow big and break stuff while saving the princess of the mushroom people from a goth turtle!
@Heavyarms55 To be fair, he's not just "a Japanese developer" but a relative rock star, industry icon, media celebrity, and actually does associate with actual rock stars (McCartney.) He's much more a public figure than that "S. Miyahon" guy ever was.
Miyamoto was metal as metal
Nice Bon Scott hair
@Avol MORTAL KOMBAAAAAAT!
Reminds me of how dreamy George Lucas looked on the set of the first Star Wars.
@Kalmaro Healthy living. Miyamoto looks like he exercises and eats carefully.
The only question I have is this:
What in the heck is that "My Teacher" thing? I tried using Google-fu and even DuckDuckGo with no luck at all. 🤔
