Did you know that Nintendo has a branch in Russia? Unfortunately, for various reasons, it isn’t in a good situation right now. Sales in the region have been poor, due in large part to the branch’s poor marketing department. Nintendo titles are rarely translated to Russian now. Fans largely blame Yasha Haddaji, Nintendo of Russia CEO, for the branch’s situation. The CEO is accused of bad temperament, mistreatment of employees, poor business decisions, and more. Well, one example of Haddaji’s actions has been caught live on an official stream.
You see, Nintendo of Russia had a live stream at Level Up Days, a 3-day event in Russia where you can play Nintendo games and participate in a tournament. The first day of the stream had problems. There were some technical issues, and Nintendo Russia CEO had a live meltdown. Haddaji can be heard losing his temper, cursing and insulting his employees on the stream. If you want to see what’s going on, there are two videos down below. The first one explains the situation going on at Nintendo Russia, including the stream, and the second one is a full upload of the stream itself.
