Man, I'm gonna be a wreck the first Nintendo Direct without Iwata bringing the news "directly" to us.

Wonder how Miyamoto and Reggie will handle this. If they'll be able to handle this.

It's crazy to think that Miyamoto is a whopping 7 years older than he was. I hope to god he's not the new CEO. He's not a businessman.

Why would you ever think that? Just because he's a big name connected to the company?

If the cancer has spread to the regional lymph nodes, the survival rate is 6 percent and drops to 2 percent if the cancer has spread to a distant part of the body.

>As a result, the following two Representative Directors remain at the company.

They are the next in line in and thus interim Co-CEOs.

And neither, due to Japanese business culture, will want to really press the envelope on the next machine.

This is quite literally the exact opposite of what Nintendo's been saying about the NX.

“No matter the farewell, I think the most appropriate thing to say is “we”ll meet again.” We are friends so we”ll see each other again. There is nothing strange about saying it. Yeah. We’ll meet again.

Even if you didn’t have the chance to put into words how sudden it was going to be, how far you’d be traveling, or how you went much earlier than expected, I know you went wearing your best.

You always put yourself second to others no matter what, helping anyone who needed it whenever they needed it. You were that kind of friend. Although you may have been a little selfish for the first time ever by taking this journey.

The truth is though that I still don’t believe any of it. I feel like I am going to receive a message from you inviting me out to eat at any moment. I wouldn’t mind if you were to ask me like always if I had some free time. If you did, I’d ask you as well.

Still, “we’ll meet again.” It would be great to hear from you whenever and wherever; I’ll being calling to you too. I’ll call if I have something to discuss or I want to tell you a great new idea I’ve had.
We’ll meet again.

Then again, you’re here with me now.”

I'll believe it when I see it; talk is cheap especially in this game.

How many CEOs regularly personally give news updates /directly\ to us, the players?

Quite a lot of them do now, actually. Phil Spencer, Shuhei Yoshida and Adam Boyes are all very much out there talking with their consumer base. And it's pretty much thanks to Iwata. Before Nintendo started humanizing their top managing staff such a thing would've been deemed unthinkable.

About as many as would give themselves a pay cut to avoid having to reduce their workforce, probably.
