Creatures Inc. President and legendary video game composer Hirokazu “Hip” Tanaka was recently featured in a Pokémon 20th Anniversary video, where he discusses the past, present, and future of his work on the Pokémon series. One of the most interesting tidbits is a memory of his meeting with Nintendo of America before Pokémon had come West. While NoA doubted the property could find success in America, Tanaka found inspiration in his daughter, who told him, “You never know!” Check out his full message in the video above.

Hi, I'm Alex. I'm a lifelong Nintendo fan and PC gamer. A few of my all-time favourite video games include The Legend of Zeldas: Twilight Princess and Majora's Mask, Mass Effect 2, Rayman 2, and most importantly, Xenoblade. If I ever catch you making a "really feeling it" joke in our comments, you can bet your ass I'll hide it, you casual scum. Feel free to send me a private message if you have something you'd like to discuss... or if you just want to say hi!
