In this picture from a circa 1993 Nintendo official strategy guide book for Kirby's Adventure, we see young Shigeru Miyamoto, young Satoru Iwata, and
young older? Masahiro Sakurai draw their best Kirby.
The text below Miyamoto, who was of course well known at the time, mentions his work on Super Mario and Zelda. He's Kirby Adventure's producer.
The text below Sakurai lists the then relatively unknown creator as the amazing person who came up with Kirby. He's the youngest person on the staff, and an idea man of few words.
The text below Iwata lists the future Nintendo CEO as an elite person who made a Nintendo golf game pretty much all by himself. He's a producer who also programs.
