” Devon Pritchard, Executive Vice President, Business Affairs and Publisher Relations for Nintendo of America (NOA), will presume interim management of Sales, Marketing and Communications following the departure of Nick Chavez. Ms. Pritchard will manage method and execution of sales, marketing and interactions throughout the U.S. and Canada.”

Kotaku likewise reported that the choice will displace about 100 workers from the Redwood City workplaces– it’s unclear what effect the closure will have on Toronto workers. That stated, it likewise seems like some staff members will have the ability to move to other head office (such as the one in Vancouver, B.C.).

Unfortunately, Nintendo didn’t elaborate on why it was closing the workplaces.

Both the Redwood City and Toronto workplaces stay on the Nintendo of America Careers site Nintendo explains the Redwood City website as a location for sales and marketing departments, while the Toronto area is the “sales workplace for NOCL.”

Considering both places are noted as sales and/or marketing workplaces, the closures most likely will not affect any of the video games Nintendo is presently dealing with. It’s likewise worth keeping in mind the closures followed the launch of Nintendo’s OLED Switch and Metroid Dread, among the business’s greatest video games of the year.
