A few days ago we reported that president Satoru Iwata would miss his annual shareholders meeting with Nintendo because of recovery from a surgery for a growth on his bile duct. Despite being absent from that meeting, Nintendo’s board of directors have re-elected Iwata as their president for another year.
The approval rating at which Iwata was ushered into another year at the company’s head hasn’t been released yet, but Nintendo’s strong showing at E3 and the impending release of Super Smash Bros. on both Nintendo 3DS and Wii U probably has shareholders at ease for now, since Iwata’s long-term plan for the Wii U is finally unfolding.
