Satellite offices in California and Toronto affected.
Nintendo has closed its offices in California, USA, and Toronto, Canada. The closure of the office in California (one of Nintendo of America’s 3 offices) affected about 100 employees. It is unclear how many staff were affected at the Toronto office.
In a statement Nintendo commented:
“Nintendo of America headquarters are in Redmond, WA, and Vancouver, BC. We are moving more of our employees and operations into those headquarters and will be closing small satellite offices in Toronto, ON, and Redwood City, CA, over time.”

Ms. Pritchard will oversee strategy and execution of sales, marketing and communications across the U.S. and Canada.”
