Nintendo Gets a New President

Nintendo Gets a New President”

Mr. Furukawa, 46, has worked at Nintendo since 1994. Along with its earnings, Nintendo also announced that current President Tatsumi Kimishima, who took over from the late Satoru Iwata in 2015, is stepping down. It now expects to sell a further 20 million consoles before the end of March 2019, although we'd be lying if we said this coming year looks quite as strong as 2017.

The management changes were shared at a press conference in Osaka, where, Bloomberg reports, that Furukawa has promised to bring out the company's full potential and that he will balance its traditions.

Nintendo also revealed that the upcoming traditional Pokemon RPG for the Switch will be released in "2018 or later".

Confirm Mike Pompeo to fill the void at State
It had appeared going in to that committee vote that there might not be enough votes for approval, but Sen. Roger Marshall (R-KS) says obstruction in the Senate has delayed Pompeo's confirmation.

The Nintendo Switch console is another massive hit for the world's best known video game company, besting already high expectations and driving the company to a massive 500 percent profit increase.

Shuntaro Furukawa will serve as Kimishima's replacement.

If that wasn't impressive enough, the Big N has managed to flog 68.97 million software units during the same period. Furukawa is known as a very intelligent person who is even able to speak fluent English.

The company also provided the specific sales numbers for its first-party games, with 9 games being detailed. Most of that is thanks to the Switch, which has enjoyed success pretty much since the day it launched.

Nintendo's released its first full financials after the Switch's release in March a year ago, and the system has done unbelievably well.

And it's not just the hardware that's selling: Some key Nintendo software titles for the Switch are blockbusters in their own rights.
