It's been a notable 24 hours for Nintendo, with the company announcing that Tatsumi Kimishima will take over as President on 16th September, with Shigeru Miyamoto and Genyo Takeda taking on new titles as Creative and Technology Fellows and seemingly being integrated closely in the overall management of the company. This structure and Kimishima-san's previous role with Nintendo of America points to a potential shift in management approach for the company.
There's been plenty of coverage of the announcement in Japanese media, prominently Nikkei, and well-known and highly respected analyst Dr. Serkan Toto has been tweeting some interesting translations and interpretations of these articles, including an interview with the new President.
