Who would have thought that a giant ape would lead to someone being knighted? That’s exactly what happened yesterday, as Ubisoft’s Michael Ancel, creator of [i]Rayman[/i], [i]Beyond Good & Evil[/i], and [i]Peter Jackson’s King Kong[/i], was knighted by the French Minister of Culture and Communication, Renaud Donnedieu de Vabres, for outstanding achievement in video games.
Nintendo’s Shigeru Miyamoto ([i]Zelda[/i], [i]Mario[/i]) and Frederick Raynal ([i]Alone in the Dark[/i]) were also knighted. All three of them are now knights of arts and literature. This is the first time that video game developers were given such an honor.
