New Metroid interview from Sakamoto

Where he talks about the original Metroid now that it's been released on the mini NES. Hopefully a translation can be thrown together.

No time frame but we are looking into translating this interview. I doubt any new information will be discovered other than some inconsequential anecdotes, but we'll see eventually.

If it's an interview about the original Metroid then yeah I can't see anything new coming from it. Though maybe some new development stories.

Also I much preferred Sakamoto's old hair compared to the new one shown in the article.

Agreed. To quote the creepy Head Quarantine Officer from MOM, it made him look at least somewhat presentable.

Welp, looks like Nintendo did the translation for you, for once: http://www.nintendo.com/nes-classic/met ... -interview

Sakamoto: Yes. The Famicom before mass production. Someone from that company expressed thanks to Nintendo, but I didn't know what that person was talking about. (laughs) I was in Research & Development Department 1, which wasn't directly involved with development of the Famicom, so I didn't know much about it.

"Even though you were a Nintendo employee. (laughs)"

Sakamoto: Yeah. (laughs) I only learned about the release of the Famicom after some time had passed, so I was a little late in becoming aware of it.
It's always fun to here stories like these in company/corporate culture.

Kiyotake-san, weren't you the one who named Samus Aran?

Kiyotake: Yes, I was.

About ten years ago when I did a magazine interview, I heard from Sakamoto-san that you're a soccer fan and took that name from the real name of Pelé, the King of Football.

Kiyotake: Yeah. (laughs) Even though it may not really be his name…

Yeah, it isn't. (laughs)

Kiyotake: I thought so. (laughs)

Apparently, you thought Pelé's real name is Samus Arantes Nascimentos.

Kiyotake: Yeah, yeah, something like that.

But if you look it up, it's Edson Arantes do Nascimento.

Kiyotake: Yeah, I was totally off! (laughs)

Sakamoto: But Arantes was right. (laughs)
I actually did not know this, not sure if it has been explained or not, but that's pretty entertaining too.

I remember the anecdote about Pele from another interview, translated by the MDb. Nintendo Dream, I think. It was interesting.

I couldn't tell you exactly when, since CapCom didn't write the publish date, but that info's been on our site for years.

Sakamoto's new hairdo may be the sign he has been humbled...
