Tatsumi Kimishima is my, and your, and more importantly Nintendo's, Lord and Master.  Previous head of Nintendo of America. I must admit, I've never heard of him before.  No mention of him as a developer: instead, he's been CFO, and worked in banking.

I have yet to be convinced.  Nonetheless, until proven otherwise, ALL HAIL KIMISHIMA!  ALL HAIL!

He does sound like more of a business guy than a games guy, but they've bumped Shigsy and Takeda up to Creative Fellow and Technical Fellow to counteract that a bit, so I'm pretty confident we're not going to see Nintendo "charge to make Mario jump higher" or anything.

Was that picture of him taken right at the time he smelt something rotten?

Yes, the smell of filthy lucre.

Seeing that (about Shigsy and Takeda) is comforting, but I'm still worried that a more "business-focussed" CEO might, in trying to make Ninty (more) commercially successful, pander to analysts in "bad" ways. I just hope we don't see a major shift towards pay-to-win on the NX. Neutral

ALL HAIL!

I guess it makes sense putting a business man at the head of a business. I guess promoting Takeda and Miymoto to technology and creative fellow is so they can act as advisors for kimi.
I'm not really worried about analysts affecting how the company is run, with kimi's experience I'm sure he doesn't need much advice, not even from pachter.

SO HAILED!

NintendoLife likened Shigsy and Takeda to wingmen, which conjures up bizarre images of both clubs and Star Fox. I am convinced that Mr. Iwata's vision for the company will be the way of things in the short to medium term.

That's an ace .gif, NintenDUCK. Thumbs Up!

Some information about Kimishima. Interesting that he predicted the Wii U's "failure" by talking about how close it was to the original Wii. I doubt he'll have much impact on the NX, seeing as it's probably a fair way down the line, but what could this lead to in Nintendo's next console?
