One of the most delightful parts of the Nintendo E3 presentation earlier this week (and trust us, there were several) was the appearance of a gaggle of puppets. Turns out, those weren't just any puppets. They were made by the Jim Henson Company.
Reggie Fils-Aime, Shigeru Miyamoto and Satoru Iwata? Not to mention Fox McCloud, Falco Lombardi and Peppy Hare? They're all basically Muppets now, and that's something to celebrate.
The best part of contracting with the Henson Company to make puppets is, of course, asking for a private tour. So, when the Nintendo team traveled (by map) from Japan, they made sure to schedule a visit to Henson Studios to shake hands with the man who helped make them, Brian Henson.
No word yet if the Nintendo puppets will be making cameos on the upcoming reboot of The Muppet Show, but we can hope.
