Nintendo announced several changes in it’s corporate structure. Along with the retirement of Yoshihiro Mori and Masaharu Matsumoto, who filled the roles of general manager of Corporate Analysis and Administration, and general manager of the General Affairs Division, have been succeeded by Tatsumi Kimishima, the current chairman and CEO of Nintendo of America (NOA) and a director of its parent Nintendo Co., Ltd. In his place will be current Global President Satoru Iwata as the new CEO of Nintendo of America, assuming most of Kimishima’s responsibilities. Reggie Fils-Aime will remain in his current positions as president and COO of NOA, reporting to Iwata.
