Satoru Iwata losing approval of Nintendo’s investors


Whilst we’ve grown to adore Satoru Iwata through his Nintendo Direct enthusiasm, investors are proving more scornful over the relative success of Nintendo’s current CEO.

Having shared the most recent investor approval rating for the company’s executives, Iwata scored a fairly disappointing 77.26 percent.

In contrast, that makes him the only executive this year to find themselves below 90 percent, and proves to be a sharp fall from last year’s results which saw him receive an approval rating of 90.6 percent.

Whereas the Nintendo 3DS is seeing resurgent success, Iwata will surely be hoping to similarly turn things around for the ailing Wii U – therefore gaining more support from those who are losing confidence in his direction.
