Tatsumi Kimishima has been the managing director of Nintendo since July 2013 and he also acted as the Nintendo of America’s CEO. He will become the next president of Nintendo. An unlikely figure. Most of the analytics predicted Shigeru Miyamoto and Genyo Takeda to become a president.
Instead Miyamoto and Takeda have new job titles – Creative Fellow and Technology Fellow (director). The company still has a couple of open positions left: heads of the Entertainment Analysis & Development division and the Integrated Research & Development division.
Some sources say that former Software Planning & Development boss Shinya Takahashi will be appointed the head of the Entertainment Planning & Development division. However, this information is still not confirmed.
Nintendo right now is in a very tight situation. The company lacks sales, its Wii U console was not a success and there’s still much to be done in terms of sales increase. Nintendo is currently working on mobile games and is looking at new opportunities.
