Iwata to takeover as Nintendo of America CEO

Nintendo president Satoru Iwata doesn’t have enough work to do. He currently commands Nintendo from his home in Japan. Nintendo of America hasn’t been keeping up with Iwata’s vision of success, however. That’s why he will be stepping in as the Nintendo of America CEO soon as well. Current NOA CEO┬áTatsumi Kimishima will be flown back to Japan (presumably to be punished).

The new job comes as Nintendo attempts to improve Wii U sales in the west. There’s no word yet on how this will affect Iwata’s free time and marriage. Word is that Iwata also has his eye on a janitor gig at Nintendo of Europe which has been described as “pretty sweet.” Stay tuned for more on this story as it hits the web.
