Nintendo's new president is a 65-year-old human resources executive and managing director.
And he's promising to stick with the plan left by former CEO and president Satoru Iwata, whose sudden death in July ended his 13-year leadership.
In comments released by the company Monday, Nintendo's new CEO, Tatsumi Kimishima, said, "The basic direction and strategy won't change. ... I will continue along the path set by President Iwata." Nintendo also announced a management restructure as part of the shift.
