Kimishima takes the position left by Satoru Iwata, who passed away in July.

The new president was previously boss of Nintendo of America before Reggie Fils-Aime took the position and has also worked at the Pokemon Company.

Kimishima starts in his new role this week. Shigeru Miyamoto and Genyo Takeda had been acting presidents until the replacement was found.
