I don't see Sakurai running the company, he always talks about how stressful is to make smash ganes so I don't think he can handle the stress that comes with running a company. I also think Miyamoto is not capable of handling the CEO position and I'm not sure he wants to. Reggie has been making so many mistakes recently and he's part of the reason nintendo is in a bad position in the console market I don't want to see him as CEO. Honestly I want soneone new, it may be risky but big changes need to happen at nintendo.


Time to steal some tallent away from Sony :P (seriously though, probably not a bad idea)

Not sure why people are suggesting Sakurai. My personal favorite developer, but I have no idea how he would function as an executive.

I'd go with Miyamoto. He's done so much for the history of Nintendo. I think one of the problems with the Wii U was that the software and hardware visions didn't mesh together, and I think Miyamoto could help bridge that gap.

Well sony did a fantastic job transitioning from the PS3 to the PS4 and they are dominating the console market so yeah why not. 



                                                                                     

Tatsumi Kimishima or Satoru Shibata would honestly be pretty good picks.



I want it to be Reggie cos he's awesome but it's likely to be Takeda imo

Friday is Iwata's funeral that is probably why he had to cancel his plans at EVO and go on a trip.


Indeed, still interesting that Nintendo is cancelling so many public appearances (especially at EVO, which is a fantastic selling point for Smash). Although, I'm surprised Bill Trinen would be invited to Iwata's funeral. I mean, he is a small guy in the grand scheme of things (isn't even in charge of NoA like Reggie is) so I would have thought he wouldn't have been that close to Iwata. I guess I'm wrong though!

Trinen has been there for a long time. Even longer than Reggie and most others at NoA. He also speaks fluent Japanese. He probably has more credibility at NCL than Reggie does despite Reggie being higher up. I bet Bill and Iwata were really close. 

 

OT: Nintendo NEEDS to bring in someone from another gaming company, however they don't need any Japanese execs who are infatuated with mobile. I think someone like Minoru Arakawa who understands the western market, but can stay strong in Japan (vs. full on western minded like Sony) can help Nintendo. 

 

Reggie would make a good candidate, but there is no way they will bring in a non-Japanese person. Miyamoto doesn't have business experience. If Trinen wanted to be president of NoA he would be president by now. Sakurai has all of these things, but others said he has problems with his arm. 



Reggie is fine where he is at!

Didn't know that about Bill's history and I forgot about his Japanese ability. Good points!



I'll take a wild guess and say Shigeki Morimoto.



None of them. I actually want Ketsuya Eguchi 'cause this man is awesome.
