In a new interview with Weekly Play News, the creator of Mario and The Legend Of Zelda described a typical day at Nintendo HQ.

Currently he is "continually playing the games and checking their content, and sharing my opinion with the development staff."

As he plays, he jots down his opinions on a checklist and presents them to the Director.

He says he has up to seven games on the go at once even though he usually focuses on three games a year.

Recently his focus has been on Legend Of Zelda Skyward Sword and he played it for up to 10 hours a day, only breaking for meetings.

We want his job!

The Legend Of Zelda Skyward Sword and Super Mario 3D Land are both released in the UK on Friday.
