Miyamoto attended the Kanazawa Municipal College of Industrial Arts and Crafts, graduating in 1975… Mario was called simply “Jump Man” in the original incarnations of Donkey Kong… In a 2003 interview with Nintendo’s official magazine, Miyamoto said, “What’s kind of a mystery is, why did I title the game Donkey Kong? The main character, the player, was Mario. That much was decided. But really Donkey Kong’s personality was the most fleshed-out of all of them. I really think it’s best to name a game after its strongest character.”
