We recently reported on the news that Shuntaro Furukawa will be taking over for Tatsumi Kimishima as president of Nintendo in June. But what does this mean for Nintendo — and for the Switch? Well, let’s take a look. Furukawa takes over at Nintendo with the company in a much different place than it was in just a few years ago. When Kimishima took over after the untimely death of Satoru Iwata in 2015, it was a shift during perhaps one of the most telling times in the company’s history. After the rocket success that Iwata led the company to…
