Much like Hiroshi Yamauchi, Nintendo President Satoru Iwata isn’t afraid to admit about failure.
While speaking to the B Dash Camp held at Osaka, Japan, Iwata delved into several topics ranging from the recent death of former Nintendo president Hiroshi Yamauchi to pushing the Pokemon in the Americas. Iwata later mentioned in the interview about Nintendo’s longevity and how the company hopes to continue surprising the industry and its legion of gamers.
“If you do the same thing as others, it will wear you out. Nintendo is not good at competing so we always have to challenge [the status quo] by making something new, rather than competing in an existing market.”
