At Nintendo’s 74th annual shareholders meeting, Satoru Iwata has been re-appointed as the president of the company, even with the Wii U struggling in terms of consoles sold. Alongside him, Nintendo’s directors including Shigeru Miyamoto have been re-elected as well as new candidate Naoki Mizutani being elected.
This comes in the wake of health problems for Iwata, who was not able to attend the shareholders meeting personally while recovering and also missed out on E3 due to surgery, though he is expected to return to work duties in coming weeks.
Despite the Wii U struggles, Mario Kart 8 seems to have done some magic for the system, with unit sales now picking up in the wake of the game selling two million copies in under a month. Some impressive figures, though this will have to be sustained in order for the system to keep up with the PS4 and Xbox One.
