Nintendo has announced that Tatsumi Kimishima, current chairman and CEO of Nintendo of America and a director of its parent Nintendo will become NCL managing director, and transfer from NOA in Redmond, Washington, to NCL headquarters in Kyoto, Japan.
In his new position, he will assume the roles of general manager of Corporate Analysis and Administration, and general manager of the General Affairs Division.
Due to this promotion, many of his current responsibilities, including the CEO title, will be assumed by Global President Satoru Iwata, who will also continue in his current role alongside his new duties. Reggie Fils-Aime will continue in his role as president and COO of NOA, reporting to Iwata.
Looks like a few people at Nintendo suddenly have a lot more work to do. Will it make a difference to sales?
