End of an Era
In a move that is surprising, but not as surprising as Kimishima stepping down as Nintendo President, Satoru Shibata has followed suit and will also step down as Nintendo of Europe President.
In this case, it is uncertain who will take over, but Shibata will not be leaving Nintendo entirely. Instead, he will take a position as part of the Board of Directors at NCL.
Still, it is surprising that these changes are taking place, or at least they are somewhat unexpected.
