Nintendo has announced that it is going to close its office in Bay Area and all the employees will be rearranged. The company has confirmed that it is closing two of its offices in North America, one in Redwood City and the second one in Toronto. They will be going to unite function in the United States and Canada’s heads.
The company said in a statement that Nintendo of America headquarters will be WA, Vancouver, Redmond, and BC. They have a plan to move all the employees in small offices such as Redwood City, Toronto, California, and ON into those headquarters as they are closing these small offices.
The Kotaku further said that many of the newly replaces staff were very upset over the companies decision. Their office on Bridge Parkway in Redwood City has included marketing and sales departments. But the Nintendo’s official website yet records that location, labeling it as a place where you can find Marketing and Sales departments and also the NMI.
A YouTube video which was recorded in 2012 provides a glance of inside bright space, which was occupied with knickknacks and art from its very well-known franchises including Zelda and Super Mario.
Along with the office relocation they have also made changes in their leadership team. Nick Chavez SVP of Sales and Marketing has left the company and Devon Pritchard is the current Executive Vice President, Business Affairs and Publisher Relations.
Moreover, Nintendo has not given any specific reason for closing its office in Redwood City.
