Nintendo is a big company and is always looking for one person or another to fill a particular role. With this in mind, its Japanese website recently posted a new listing for a spokesperson, who would be based in Kyoto, Japan.
Noticeably the position is seeking someone who will formulate and execute a "global" public relations strategy, build media relations, collaborate with spokespersons at Nintendo's offices overseas, can create PR and QA, and provide media support - including inquiries and interviews.
To be the right applicant, this individual will require 3 years or more of practical experience of corporate public relations, Japanese writing ability, and business-level English proficiency. Of course, you'll also need to be interested in the video game and entertainment industry.

Needs more mindless speculation saying they must want a spokesperson for Switch Pro.
Basically somebody who can say in a decent manner: "We're rich, biaaaatch!!!"
Just gotta brush up on my katakana 🙏
Hey! I has bisiunes level Egnilsh profisientsy and floorless 白木語 skills this jub woz MADE FOUR ME!
WATCHC OUT WORLD COZ HEAR COMES SPOKEY MCSPOKESMAN!
explodes under inflated estimation of own abilities
Fortunately you had to be super trilingual to even be considered as this role requires you to know more than just English and Japanese. A spokesperson had to be able to interpret info as well as deliver them on behalf of the company.
The description sounds like most of the comments on this site - but add the word “armchair” to the front. 😂
I am both flattered you thought of me and confused why a Nintendo site would think so low of Nintendo as to think of me
They need to add a warning that: please note all comments you make may be screened b/c although we are a family based company we tend to be historically a PARANOID company in legal matters, and you may have to explain at times why we do some "things that make you go 'huh????' at times despite the current trends/forecast/ecosystem of gaming." Outside that, please speak freely and enjoy
I think i may apply for this! Me like games good English speak uh uh ples me want to work nintendo
@HeavyArms55 This sounds like it's right up your alley! You can work for Nintendo and leave the place you hate. Win win?
Why not just have Red Luigi as the spokesperson.
I don’t speak Japanese but seeing as Nintendo barely announce anything these days it will be an easy position to fulfill
I guess I have been learning Japanese... Nani!? You want to see my Japanese? No, I am "Totally" Not just using google translate...
I'd be awful, shouting out future games/projects and release dates by accident.
@Ratking we obviously all don’t, but some of us do.
I went to school for computer science with a minor in Japanese language. Sure I don’t remember kanji, but that’s why we have furigana.
This doesn’t discount the fact that this article is still some sort of not useful though.
I don't speak a word of Japanese, I have stage fright, and I'm honest. So no.
@Ratking I think that was the point. Nothing wrong with having a little fun
@HobbitGamer It would be, but I lack the needed practical experience. Nor do I have any appropriate degrees.
"We have nothing to announced regarding a New Nintendo Switch XL."
Can't wait for the Job, Nintendo!
@HotGoomba This might be random, but do you mean the SMM2 player RedLuigi?
@Rowan No, but that's not a bad idea either
@HotGoomba It honestly wouldn’t be a bad idea, as you said.
@Slowdive No, it didn't. Iwata never did those things, a spokeperson always did it, like in any company.
@rjc-32 That's probably why they announced a lot of products this year, huh.
There's no more Reggie, Iwata or even Bill Trenen... heck they dont even have a Perrin Kaplan.
Dang, this is right up my alley with the Communications and Multimedia degree/experience. However, I didn't take Japanese in high school. 🤦♂️ Other than that, this career is screaming out my name.
@RPGamer Just use Google Translate.
@RPGamer Good luck. Sponsor for the both of us. 😭
Gotta work on my Japanese first
