Back in July, then-Nintendo President Satoru Iwata tragically passed away at the age of 55 due to a bile duct growth. After roughly two months, Nintendo has announced that Tatsumi Kimishima will step up to take the late Iwata’s place. Kimishima, who has been with the company since 2000, previously served as director of Pokemon characters before moving on to managing director overseeing corporate analysis, general affairs, and human resources divisions.

In related corporate Nintendo news, the company is revising its organization structure, and with that revision come new titles for some of its top brass. Senior executive Genyo Takeda has been given the title of “Technology Fellow,” while everyone’s favorite game developer Shigeru Miyamoto now has the title of “Creative Fellow.”

They’re eccentric titles to be sure, but I would expect nothing less from Nintendo. I look forward to see what Kimishima can bring to the company, so for now consider me an “Excited Fellow.”
