Tatsumi Kimishima has been operating as the President of Nintendo for three years, taking over Satoru Iwata’s roles after his tragic and sudden passing. Though it was meant as a temporary role, he was president of the Japanese company over one of Nintendo’s most successful periods. That is, of course, the thriving launch of the Nintendo Switch.

When he steps down on the 28th June 2018, Shuntaro Furukawa will take the reins of Nintendo as the new president. He originally joined Nintendo in 1994, where he has worked in marketing for the company, as well as at The Pokémon Company. More recently, he has worked as Nintendo’s Managing Executive Officer, Supervisor of Corporate Analysis & Administration Division and Director.

We look forward to see what Furukawa can bring to Nintendo for the future.

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!
