Nintendo closes offices in California and Toronto | Pocket Gamer.biz

Nintendo has announced that it will close two of its North American offices in California and Toronto.

Employees will have the option to relocate to Nintendo’s national headquarters in Redmond, Washington and Vancouver, Canada.

It is currently not known whether all employees (around 100) will stay with the company.

Nintendo’s marketing, sales, and retail departments were located in California and Toronto.

Layoffs like these are unusual at Nintendo, most recently on this scale in Europe in 2014.

The office closure announcement came along with the resignation of Nick Chavez, senior vice president of sales and marketing.

Devon Pritchard, Executive Vice President of Business Affairs and Publisher Relations, will now lead both sales and marketing.

Doug Bowser held this position before he became the current president of Nintendo of America, but in the case of Devon Pritchard, it will be a transitional role.
