After being influenced by the creations of ''VideoGame/PacMan'' and ''VideoGame/SpaceInvaders'', he began his career at Nintendo through his father's connections, becoming the company's first artist. As this was during the point where the company focused on entering the video game market, He was in charge of creating the art for all of Nintendo's early arcade cabinets, including Sheriff and Radar Scope. Radar Scope's failure in the Western market left so many units unsold that Nintendo was on the verge of financial collapse. When President Yamauchi thought to convert the unsold units into an entirely new game, he tasked Miyamoto with the project under GunpeiYokoi's supervision.

His creation of the 1981 arcade game ''VideoGame/DonkeyKong'' was one of the first times video games would have a story that preceded development of the game itself. Since then, he's been so busy with so many fingers in so many pies over the years that competitors and their fans admit that he has given more to the video game industry than just about everyone else, possibly ''combined''. Today he is head of Nintendo's EAD, which is in charge of almost all of its first-party titles and he's had a hand in the development in the UsefulNotes/{{Wii}} and 3DS. Currently, he is the Creative Fellow of Nintendo in 2015 after presidency was given to Tatsumi Kimishima, formerly leaving his position as head of Nintendo's EAD. Despite this, he is still involved with many of EAD's projects including StarFox and {{Pikmin}} and other games.
