Kimishima succeeds Nintendo

After the sudden death of Satoru Iwata, the former president of Nintendo, who would succeed him had been concerned. In spite I suggested two candidates, Tatsumi Kimishima was appointed to be the next president.

Tatsumi Kimishima was a banker previous to belong to Nintendo. He worked as the president for Nintendo America and thereafter a managing director of Nintendo. It is no doubt that he is expected to achieve an excellent management of Nintendo.

Shigeru Miyamoto and Genyo Takeda will be the fellows, which was firstly established in this time. The both were also thought to be the next president. Kimishima seems to make a troika administration with them.

I think Nintendo's decision is conservative but safe. Miyamoto and Takeda are rather designers than administrators. Although they will make marvelous works, it is uncertain that a good designer will be a good administrator. Nintendo is a big company. The primary task of the president is to manage any branches in it. Kimishima will be more skillful in this kind of work than Miyamoto or Takeda.

Nintendo is planning to enter the battlefield of a smartphone. And the next-generation console is under developing. I hope Kimishima will achieve a good performance.
