Default Tatsumi Kimishima Appointed as Nintendo's New President



I miss Iwata so much but I think Kimishima will do a good job. There is a lot of restructuring going on right now too.

Good luck, sir!

i think he's a good choice, if an obvious fallback/stopgap one due to his age. the major restructure tells me he means business. plus he was part of noa, so he at least kind of understands the western market.

He's primarily worked in the international market so I doubt he'll be as strictly "Japan first, everyone else second" as Iwata was.
Which is a great sign for us because NoA is trash.

I doubt he'll be as outgoing as iwata. i imagine future directs will be host by Shibata, Moriomoto, and Reggie/Trinen. He seems a bit more behind-the-scenes. He predicted the Wii U would fail, so he has some forsight.

He's just a safe stopgap for the transition period. He'll have a 6 year term at the most. He's in charge for a short time until one of the younger guys is ready.
