After Iwata took his position as CEO of Nintendo of America, Kimishima was promoted to Managing Director of Nintendo Co. Ltd.

The decision to appoint Kimishima was made at a meeting of the Board of Directors on September 14 2015 in Japan.

This news comes after recent suggestions the company is changing how it operates.

A new console codenamed NX is in development but the company is also now publishing smart phone games, most recently Pokémon Go! which will allow players to find, capture and battle Pokémon via their smart devices.

In addition, recent comments by Shigeru Miyamoto suggests Nintendo is open to the idea of movies based on their properties.
