 Kevan Wilson Promoted to Vice President of Sales
 REDMOND, Wash., Sept. 12, 2005 – Nintendo of America Inc. today announced the promotion of Kevan Wilson to vice president of sales, effective Jan. 2, 2006. An 11-year veteran of Nintendo, Wilson will be responsible for overseeing and establishing the strategic direction for the Nintendo of America sales department.
 "From increasing sales volumes with our biggest retail accounts to implementing key strategic sales department initiatives, Kevan has made remarkable contributions to our success," says Tatsumi Kimishima, Nintendo of America's president. "This well-deserved promotion reflects his incredible drive and dedication to our business."
 Reggie Fils-Aime, Nintendo of America's executive vice president of sales & marketing, added, "Kevan's demonstrated success in driving sales, implementing new programs and leading a team is ideal for directing the outstanding group of sales professionals already in place in our organization."
 Wilson joined Nintendo of America as regional manager in August 2000 and was promoted to director in 2002, when he took on additional responsibility for the Chicago sales team. In 2004, he was promoted to his current role, senior director of sales. Prior to joining Nintendo of America, Wilson successfully managed the sales and merchandising operations at Nintendo of Canada for six years. Before that, he spent 15 years in the Canadian packaged goods industry, including Bristol-Myers and Unilever, in various sales, trade marketing and marketing management positions.
 Wilson replaces Randy Peretzman, who will be retiring Dec. 31, 2005, after 20 years of dedicated service.
