Ya-hoo!

Miyamoto's best dad moments at Super Nintendo World

Osaka dreaming.

Nintendo designer Shigeru Miyamoto is the creator of numerous iconic video game franchises, including Mario, Donkey Kong, and Zelda.

Earlier this month, Miyamoto took fans on a virtual tour of the company's new attraction at Universal Studios Japan in Osaka — Super Nintendo World.

Miyamoto's wholesome charm shines through throughout the 15-minute tour. Sadly, you probably won't be able to request him as a guide when the park opens February 4.

5. What about Luigi?

Miyamoto refers to himself as "Mario no otosan," or "Mario's dad," several times during the presentation.

4. Engineering 101

Naturally, Nintendo's first theme park was the product of a lot of careful thought and planning. Even this warp pipe was intricately designed.

3. Careful now!

Once a dad, always a dad. Even if you're an adult, otosan's going to warn you to keep an eye on those Bob-ombs.

2. Breakin' all the rules

It's generally frowned upon to be stuffing your gob all over the place in Japan, but exceptions can be made in the case of Special Popcorn.

1. Born Yesterday

Miyamoto wants you to think that he was shrunk down to Baby Mario size in that scary dungeon. He's awfully convincing, isn't he?

Super Nintendo World opens at Universal Studios Japan in Osaka on February 4. For more information, check out the park's official site.
