Nintendo UK PR boss Saunders to leave

Tuesday, 5th April 2011 15:55 GMT By Johnny Cullen

Nintendo’s just announced that UK head of communications Rob Saunders is leaving the company.

Saunders has been at the company for seven years, and has helped the company in three hardware launches, most recently 3DS earlier this month.

VG247 spoke to him at its London launch two weeks ago.

It hasn’t been confirmed where he’s to work next.

“We would like to thank Rob for all his hard work and huge contribution to Nintendo UK,” said Nintendo UK marketing boss, Dawn Paine.

“I have personally enjoyed working with Rob immensely over that period and am I proud to have had him in my team. We all wish him the very best of luck for the future which will undoubtedly be stellar.”

Saunders will leave at the end of the month. All the best, dude.

Thanks, MCV.

    So we just need someone to leave Microsoft today and we’re done, right?

    Edit: Oh man, I’ve got to stop doing that!

    They’re all going to Apple to help launch its new console, the iBox.

    What would be amusing is if they just exchanged jobs though technically one’s in PR and the other’s VP.

    I don’t think there’s conspiracies. They both seem to have left on good terms.
