Nintendo has announced that Tatsumi Kimishima will be in charge of running the company as its president.
His appointment to the position comes two months after the sudden death of Satoru Iwata, who died at the age of 55.
Kimishima previously served as Nintendo's Managing Director, and his most recent position was as the head of its Human Resources department.
In addition, Kimishima was Nintendo of America's president from 2002 to 2006. He was later succeeded by Reggie Fils-Aime, who currently retains the position. At one point in his career, he also served as the Chief Financial Officer of the Pokemon Company, and later as the president of its US division.
Shigeru Miyamoto and Genyo Takeda had both filled the position during the interim period. They have been respectively named as "Creative Fellow," and "Technology Fellow." They will continue to serve Nintendo as senior managing directors and representative directors.
Kimishima will take over the role starting September 16.
