Satoru Iwata is not going anywhere. As Mario Kart 8 passes the 2 million units sold mark, The Annual Shareholders Meeting has decided to remain confident in its President going forward, despite slow Wii U sales and his health issues. Not able to actually attend the meeting in person due to his health concerns, Iwata said, “I have no choice but to miss the company’s very important activity, the Annual General Meeting of Shareholders, to be held this month. As the president of the company, I regret that I cannot attend the meeting.”
He goes on to say that he is prioritizing his medical treatment so he can return as soon as possible. So for the time being, do not expect any big shakeups at Nintendo, and for them to continue chugging along with the Wii U. With the strong showing they put on at E3 however, that may not be the bad thing it was a year ago.
