We recently brought you news of the management shake-up taking place at Nintendo’s Kyoto headquarters, which saw legendary president Hiroshi Yamauchi finally step down, relinquishing command after almost half a century at the company helm.

Nintendo has now fully revealed how the company will be structured at the top tier.

A board of six executives has been appointed to take control of all Nintendo’s operational matters, from development to distribution. The six appointees are Satoru Iwata, Atsushi Asada, Shigeru Miyamoto, Shinji Hatano, Genyo Takeda, and Yoshihiro Mori, all of who will work under close guidance of former president Yamauchi.

Though Satoru Iwata will hold the title of president, all decisions will be made jointly by the board of six. The concept behind the management structure is to ensure that all essential business matters receive equal consideration at board level.
