Tatsumi Kimishima named Nintendo President

Post by Gameguy1996 on Mon Sep 14, 2015 2:32 am

Former Nintendo of America president Tatsumi Kimishima is the new President of Nintendo.

http://www.nintendo.co.jp/ir/pdf/2015/150914e.pdf

I guess will see how this goes since being the main guy is harder then just being in charge of Nintendo of America. I guess this means the Directs will be coming back soon as well.

Well, I was really hoping for Takeda, but Kimishima is 65, which is around normal age for new presidents in Japan apparently.
I'm sure if they decided on him, that he can do it, wish him the best of luck.

I was hoping for Eguchi, honestly not sure who Kimishima even is, but based on his past experience in the document, he does seem pretty fitting for the role.

Congrats!

It's nice that they have named a new president for Nintendo. I'm not sure who he was until now but he seems like he can do a great job. I hope he does some great things for the company.

Kimishima mentioned something about the position tentatively being for a year and the main goal to be future proofing the company. I'll get the source in a bit

^That was from his interview with Nikkei right?
He also apparently predicted the Wii U's bad sales due to a similarity with the Wii.

He really does look...uh...ecstatic. :p But he's supposedly soft spoken and really sweet.

Yes he sure looks excited for his new position. That's funny. I guess he's not much for smiling but I'm sure he's hiding his joy for the company.
