Nintendo CEO Satoru Iwata says he feels much healthier following his surgery to remove a bile-duct growth earlier this year. The company president has returned to work and resumed his regular work schedule, appearing in front of the media for the first time since his surgery in June in order to report Nintendo’s second quarterly financial earnings. During the presentation, Iwata remarked that he had lost weight, though felt much healthier.
The growth first came to light when Satoru Iwata skipped E3 for health-related problems. But it was during Nintendo’s AGM in June that the president explained his absence, saying he was currently resting after recent surgery to remove the growth. Iwata’s high spirits will thankfully continue as earlier today Nintendo posted a net profit of 14.3 billion Yen, smashing analysts predictions.
