Nintendo's new president, Shuntaro Furukawa. Nintendo had sold 15.05 million units in the fiscal year ending on March 31. "Looking ahead, we plan to leverage this momentum to reach an even broader range of consumers and expand the installed base of the hardware", the company said in a prepared statement. There's certainly a youth movement in Kyoto, and I for one look forward to seeing where Furukawa-san leads Nintendo once he takes charge in June.
