Satoru Iwata reinforced his position in the latest Nintendo’s shareholders meeting. Despite of that, some voices could be opposed to Iwata and his way to manage Nintendo.
An article published by Business Journal (Japanese Media), claimed about the existence of an opposite stream of thought inside Nintendo.
This group would compel Iwata to develop and publish Nintendo’s games on smartphones devices, but Iwata would have rejected to follow that path. Satoru would defend the synergy established between the hardware and the software manufactured by Nintendo as a Nintendo’s strength.
In the other hand, another insider mentioned by Business Journal stated that there is a cultural friction, because of Iwata came from outside to manage the big N (Iwata was a developer in HAL Lab). Moreover, there is a feeling about the incompetence of Iwata due to his link with the development section.
Apparently, managers who apposed to Iwata would want Yamauchi’s first son to become the president of Nintendo.
