React Podcast Episode 9 – The Legacy of Hiroshi Yamauchi and The Future of Nintendo

The Koalition writes: "There are few men that meant as much to the gaming industry as Hiroshi Yamauchi. In light of his recent passing, Jakejames Lugo, Richard Bailey and I talk about the legacy of the game and the future of his former company. Not only did he take over Nintendo in the late 1940s when they were nothing more than a trading card manufacturer and turn them into the largest and most recognized gaming company in the world, but he did it all with the foresight and forward thinking that allowed him to be as successful as possible over the 50+ years he led the company. While he may not be as recognizable of a face and name as Shigeru Miyamoto, he was the man behind it all. He discovered Miyamoto when he was a mere toy-maker and gave him a shot with Donkey Kong and steered the company to success for over half a century." (3DS, GameCube, Nintendo, Nintendo DS, Wii, Wii U)
