That's surprisingly few shares of Nintendo stock owned by the board of directors. I suppose Japanese companies operate a lot different from American ones in that regard.

Always love reading through the slideshows from Nintendo IR presentations; you get lots of neat info and little details from them. Will be especially interesting to hear follow-up information on anything announced at E3.

Yeah, really odd looking at that from a US corporate perspective, lol. First thing I noticed too.

DeNA go away please.

I'm confident they were involved in the atrocious idea of the Switch mobile app.

With the recently wild success of the Switch, Kimi's approval should be much higher compared to last year. I'm still hoping to see Koizuimi as CEO of Nintendo on the upcoming years. He has all the leadership and charm as Mr. Iwata.

Iwata :'(
