The coming weeks Nintendo faces the tough challenge of choosing the president to succeed the recently deceased Satoru Iwata , with a roadmap that includes the arrival of NX, the new system the company will not know more until next year. Who is the best candidate for the position?
Some analysts have spoken on the issue, positioning itself for the veteran Mr Takeda at the expense of the father of Super Mario, Shigeru Miyamoto , who are precisely those who are currently running the company temporarily. "Although it would be a romantic dream that Mario's father lead the company, Takeda-san think has more corporate experience and really understand the hardware," said analyst Nick Parker of Parker Consulting.
Others have seen in a career Takeda "like in the company" to the Iwata himself. "From programmer to manager, manager and executive," said Mike Schramm EEDAR. "We are on the cusp of a new generation of Nintendo hardware within the next three years, both desktops and laptops, and Nintendo needs experience Takeda-san," he continues.

Therefore, "he continues," need someone who understands the culture of the company, which can respond to global expectations of consumers and manage the accounts enviable way. "
As Takeda-san was "one of the key developers behind Wii, and has a career path similar to the company Iwata (programmer to manager and executive manager). Takeda is probably the ideal candidate for this job," he concludes .
