I knew it was coming, but could’t remember when.
A story on Yahoo! reminded me that today was the day. A great man in gaming history is moving on. Hiroshi Yamauchi, President of Nintendo is retiring. He’ll be replaced by Satoru Iwata.
Yamauchi started the company quite a few years ago as a playing card company in Japan. If you have ever read the story of Nintendo (
Game Over), then you’ll know what all the company went through to become the grand-pappy of gaming.
Thanks Yamauchi-San. Your work was greatly appareciated.
