Newsbrief: Another Nintendo UK veteran has left the company in the run-up to the launch of the Wii U, with general manager David Yarnton moving elsewhere after more than 17 years at Nintendo.
Another Nintendo UK veteran has left the company in the run-up to the launch of the Wii U, with general manager David Yarnton moving elsewhere after more than 17 years at Nintendo. A statement from Nintendo provided to Gamasutra states that Yarnton, who joined Nintendo Australia in 1995 and moved to Nintendo UK in 2003, has "decided to pursue opportunities for a change of career outside of Nintendo." Satoru Shibata, the European president of Nintendo, is set to work with Nintendo UK's senior management team running the UK office until the company has announced a replacement for Yarnton. Yarnton is the third high-profile departure from the UK branch of the company this year, as head of home console marketing Rob Lowe and ten-year Nintendo UK veteran Dawn Paine both left earlier this year.
