Konami have been preparing for a huge 2012, and what better way to start off the year than appointing a new president. Tomoyuki Tsuboi, who has been with Konami for over 14 years has recently assumed the position of President on November 16th of 2011, taking over the role for Mr. Shinji Hirano, who will now be assuming the role of President of Konami Digital Entertainment, GmbH (Europe).
We know, this happened three months ago, but Tsuboi decided to make a statement today to cement his new position:
“My goal is to build upon the momentum the entire Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. staff has built for our company,” said Mr. Tomoyuki Tsuboi. “We plan to intensify this momentum by continuing to innovate across our core franchises and creating those memorable gaming experiences that has been synonymous with KONAMI over the past four decades.”
So yeah, a big congrats to Tsuboi on the new job and best of luck to Konami moving forward into this year. With the big promises of improving the old with innovation being made, it will be interesting to see just what Konami offers this year.
