Veteran operations executive to replace Satoru Iwata, who died of cancer in July
Super Mario celebrates his 30th birthday in Tokyo. On Monday, Nintendo said Tatsumi Kimishima would become chief executive, replacing Satoru Iwata, who died of cancer in July
Mario was very lonely and happy at the same time, when his Super Mario Bros. turned big 3-0 finally, but it was not too much party in the old Mario, as he was still crying over the lost of his best friend Mr. Iwata, and Nintendo decided also to use the 30th b-day, as the right time to announce whom they decided was the right person to try to fill Mr. Iwata big shoes as Nintendo's CEO.
Personally, I rather had Mario himself appointed as CEO as he would really know what 'gamers' what to see and buy, but sadly we have ''banker' as the new CEO, that means in my eyes, we going to see alot of focus on printing money at Nintendo instead of fun games.
