Iwata Returning to Work After Recovering From Surgery
« on: October 29, 2014, 02:59:22 AM »

Nintendo's CEO is ready to hop in the saddle and get back to business!

http://www.nintendoworldreport.com/news/38864/iwata-returning-to-work-after-recovering-from-surgery

Nintendo President and CEO Satoru Iwata has announced he is returning to work after recovering from surgery.

Iwata stepped away from his duties back in June to have a tumor removed from his bile duct. According to the exec, he has lost weight but is feeling healthier.

The Nintendo boss has been under a lot of pressure this year, as Wii U sales have failed to meet investors' expectations. With the upcoming launch of Amiibo, the company's NFC-based figurine platform, and Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, here's to hoping a refreshed and renewed Iwata is up to the task of getting the Big N back on its way to success.

Can Nintendo just rent out a room at that hospital and keep him there, because it seems Nintendo runs better without Iwata directly involved in the day-to-day operations.

He was at least back at the end of August, though it is good to have official confirmation.
