Nintendo president Satoru Iwata has vowed to take a 50% pay-cut following Nintendo’s financial report, published this morning.
You’ll find Nintendo’s 2013 financial report through the link.
Iwata announced that he would cut his salary in half, following a 30% drop in profits across the last nine months. The lack of appetite for Wii U consoles was cited as a key financial influence.
He told reporters that the pay-cut would last five months as compensation for the poor performance, and that fellow board members would also take a cut of between 20-30%.
It’s the second time Iwata has taken a pay cut in less than two years. In 2011 he halved his salary after the slow start to the 3DS console.
