So this is what doomsday believers were referring to ...

New president seems promising

All of those seem very promising, especially the 'expert in marketing' part.



People are putting too much credit on him, the switch turn around was planned and put in execution before his presidency. He just didn't screwed anything and keep the momentum rolling.

Around the Network

46 years old, so pretty young by CEO standards

Also, these changes concern me a bit:

4. Anticipated new Directors・Director (excluding a Director as an Audit and Supervisory Committee Member) Director Satoru Shibata(Current: Executive Officer President, Nintendo of Europe GmbH)

Senior Executive Officer Satoru Shibata (Current: Executive Officer President, Nintendo of Europe GmbH)

Will he still be President of Nintendo Europe?



Well we can say he is a gamer and not just a suit

THIS SUMMER

One man ... 

will change.it.all. 

"We need Kimishima back. I can't stand Switch Sports."

"I said I wanted Chibi Robo back.... but I DIDN'T SAY I WANTED EVERY GAME TO BE CHIBI ROBO!!!"

"I would like to announce that Metroid Prime 4 is being developed by Valve. Also, it's delayed. See you when Switch 2 launches!!!" - Not Kimishima(a.k.a. Furukawa "Fuck U Wa")

He is ....

THE RECKONERRRRR!!!



To be fair he was just current solution after Iwata passed away, and he did great job.
