Nintendo Direct shall live strong.
After a rough year following the stumbled release of the Wii U, many feared (or hoped) sitting president Satoru Iwata might be voted out in favor of some new blood. That isn't the case. Iwata will retain his position for another year, re-elected into the position by shareholders. Nintendo made the announcement during its Annual General Meeting of Shareholders this week.
Iwata skipped this year's E3 due to health concerns, and subsequently skipped the shareholder meeting as well following surgery. According to Polygon, however, he has already resumed "light business duties."
Additionally, nine other executives, including the famed Shigeru Miyamoto, will retain their positions. If Nintendo ever planned on shaking things up in the executive branch, the stellar sales of 'Mario Kart 8' and 2014's strong E3 showing have temporarily curtailed the shareholders' anxieties.
