1，Nintendo announced Monday that Tatsumi Kimishima will be taking over the reins as chief executive starting Wednesday, following the July passing of former boss Satoru Iwata, aged 55.
Executive directors Shigeru Miyamoto (creator of Mario, Zelda, and Donkey Kong, among other series) and Genyo Takeda had been temporarily tasked with running the company since the unexpected news in July.
Until now, the 65-year-old Kimishima has been Nintendo’s managing director and president and is considered to be one of the top veterans in Japan’s gaming industry. He also had a previous career as a banker with Sanwa Bank for more than 25 years.

His main challenge in the new role will be to guide Nintendo through what is expected to be a tough transition into the mobile gaming space, bolstered by a new partnership announced in March with mobile games developer DeNA.

In a statement, Nintendo said it was exploring “a large-scale revision of the organizational structure of the company.”
Meanwhile, The Wall Street Journal highlighted some of Kimishima’s background at Nintendo prior to today’s news:
[He] joined the Nintendo fold in December 2000 as representative director of Pokémon Co., which manages licenses and other businesses related to Nintendo’s Pokémon characters. From 2006 to 2013, he was chief executive of Nintendo of America Inc. He assumed his current post of managing director in June 2013.
Kimishima is a smart choice – Nintendo can’t afford experimenting in this transitional time between 2 console generations+going mobile.

Tokyo-based games industry analyst Serkan Toto tweeted his support for the new chief exec, saying he was “a smart choice — Nintendo can’t afford experimenting in this transitional time between two console generations and going mobile.”

2，PC fans of racing sim Need For Speed will have to wait a little longer for the latest installment of the game than their console comrades. The PC version has now been delayed until next year.
“Part of the conversation includes hearing from our PC community that an unlocked frame rate in Need for Speed is a massive priority for you, and we fully agree,” said developer Ghost Games in a statement today.
“To deliver this, we’ve made the decision to move the PC release date to Spring 2016. Our PlayStation 4 and Xbox One release dates will remain the same, starting November 3, 2015 in North America and November 5 worldwide.”
The studio also promised that it was taking “great steps” to ensure the online elements of the game would be stable on launch, an issue that has plagued a number of new releases in this generation.

3，Zynga has acquired Rising Tide Games, a studio that specializes in social casino games and was founded by former Zynga executive Maytal Olsha.
“We are excited to welcome the deeply talented Rising Tide Games team to Zynga, as we continue to expand our Social Casino game offerings,” said Zynga CEO Mark Pincus.
“Zynga has a long history in the Social Casino space, as Zynga Poker is the original social game and remains the world’s largest free poker game. We look forward to our Poker and Slots teams continuing to deliver games that delight our players.”
Olsha and fellow Rising Tide founders Stuart Zoble, Andrew Sega and Peter Franco will all join Zynga.
“I am excited for Rising Tide Games to join forces with Zynga,” said Olsha, who was formerly the head of social slots and RMG at Zynga.
“I look forward to once again partnering with Mark, the talented Spooky Cool team and the Zynga Austin Studio to create authentic and truly social free-to-play games. Together, with our amazing Rising Tide Games family, I believe we can deliver fun, unique Social Slots experiences to players around the world in the growing Social Casino gaming space.”（source：gamesindustry.biz ）
4，Way back in June of last year, developer Physmo teased an image on Twitter for Mos Speedrun 2, a sequel that I’d been hoping for for years as the original Mos Speedrun [$0.99] is among my all-time favorite platformers. Not a lot happened for a while after that original announcement, but then earlier this year Phsymo started posting trailers of Mos Speedrun 2, one in early January and another in late July. Finally, after all this time, today Physmo has announced a release date for Mos Speedrun 2, and it’s at the end of this month on September 30th. Hallelujah!（source：toucharcade.com ）
