Nintendo names new President

Hiroshi Yamauchi to step down

Satoru Iwata will become President of Nintendo at the end of the month, replacing Hiroshi Yamauchi who has occupied the position for more than half a century. Yamauchi is credited with turning Nintendo into the hugely profitable creative monstrosity it currently is, so Iwata has a lot to live up to.
