NOA: Sixty Percent Won't Move

Kotaku.com just heard back from Nintendo today about rumors of a mass exodus at Nintendo of America, over the planned move to San Francisco or New York for company's sales and marketing staff.

Contrary to earlier reports, about 60 percent, not 90 percent, decided to quit the company rather than move.

An official statement from Reggie Fils-Aime, President of Nintendo of America reads:

"Virtually all of the employees affected by the relocation plan have now responded with their decisions, and approximately four of every ten have agreed to make the move to either New York or the Bay Area, in keeping with our original expectations.

A transition task force of key executives has been formed to ensure the smoothest process possible, and continuous information and resources will be available to all employees. The rest of Nintendo's strong leadership talent will continue to drive our business objectives forward. It has always been the case that Nintendo employees are resilient and rise to any challenge, and there is no doubt in my mind that we will excel as we continue to tackle new challenges and business opportunities.

Nintendo itself can not discuss the relocation status of any individual involved, but for those who will be departing the company, we have every expectation that they will succeed to the highest degree in their future endeavors. We will miss the talent, energy and experience from those who have chosen not to relocate. Our sales and marketing teams have been key components in returning Nintendo to its current position of market leadership." (Industry)
