Shigeru Miyamoto, the Nintendo games boffin behind the legendary Mario Bros, will be given a Bafta fellowship at the upcoming awards.

The move recognises his contribution to the entertainment industry, and his creativity in producing the likes of Donkey Kong, Zelda and Mario.

Miyamoto was typically humble when he heard the news, saying: “Our video games cannot be created by one person; since Donkey Kong until the most recent New Super Mario Bros Wii, I have been working closely with a number of friends for three decades in order to develop fun and enjoyable games.”

“I would like to receive this honourable award on behalf of all of these dependable colleagues.”

Miyamoto has been honoured with numerous awards in the past, being voted one of Time Magazine’s 100 Most Influential People of the Year, in 2007 and 2008 (in the latter year, he actually came top of the list).
