There's no replacing Iwata, but what Kimishima has accomplished in just three years would impress and amaze Iwata if he were with us today.
I daresay Kimishima did more running Nintendo than Phil Spencer did running Microsoft Studios
He certainly did. Kimishima got things done, and he got Nintendo into a new, fresh mindset. Spencer "gets" gamers, and he's certainly smart, but he hasn't really accomplished much of what he promised. Whether that's his fault, or if there are barriers in his way, we don't really know.
I'm sure Satoru would be proud, would of been great for him to see the growing success of the Switch.
