Kimishima isn’t the only one stepping down from their role at Nintendo shortly. Satoru Shibata, President of Nintendo of Europe, will also be retiring from his role. It is currently unknown who will be taking over his role.

It isn’t all doom and gloom however, though he will be stepping down as the president of NoE, he will be stepping up as director, giving him a more executive role for the company. With a bit of luck, maybe we will still see him make appearances at events and receive public messages from him, which has always been a delight.

I am a huge Nintendo fan, hence why NintyBuzz exists. I especially love all things Zelda and Metroid. NintyBuzz was started by me back in the Summer of 2014, it started out mainly as a hobby, though the site has gradually grown, and I hope it grows for many years to come!
