Nintendo of America announced today that vice-president of sales and marketing and front man Peter Main would retire in early 2002. Peter Main will retire in January after serving Nintendo for over 15 years.


"Sometimes the term 'industry legend' is overused," says Minoru Arakawa, president, Nintendo of America Inc. "But in the case of Peter Main, it is perfectly appropriate. Many common industry practices were literally invented by Peter over the last 15 years, and we would not have achieved our phenomenal success without him."


Peter McDougall, current president of Nintendo of Canada, will take over Peter Main's role.


"Peter's unique qualifications make him ideally suited for this job," adds Minoru Arakawa. "His breadth of success is a distinct asset given the global nature of Nintendo's business."


No word was given on a replacement for McDougall at Nintendo of Canada.
