He's got a banking/finance background, rather than being in the trenches of game development as Iwata was. I imagine that this means a more fiscally conservative approach, fewer weird game-related risks. Probably good for Nintendo the corporation. I was kind of hoping they'd appoint someone with a fresh vision. Granted, I don't know much about him, but my first impression is that he's more a conservative type of guy who will not shift the culture in any major way.

I don't think they can do any worse ... but it IS Nintendo.

I know Nintendo don't talk too much about finance stuff but I bet if you compared the budgets they spend on their big games, it'd be a fraction of something like a CoD or Assassin's Creed budget.

I think what is important is that he should keep in mind the creative spirit of Nintendo while hopefully trying to integrate some better business skills into the company.
