Iwata becomes CEO of Nintendo of America

Reggie Fils-Aime to report directly to global president

Nintendo has announced that global president Satoru Iwata is taking on the additional position of Nintendo of America CEO.

Current US president and chief operating officer Reggie Fils-Aime will report directly to Iwata.

The management shuffle comes following disappointing full-year profits, in which Nintendo failed to hit Wii U and 3DS sales targets.
