Here’s what he said on his Linked In profile.

“I feel so lucky to have worked for Nintendo which is a wonderful company and I shall miss the video games industry enormously,” Yates said in a LinkedIn post. “I would like to thank all my colleagues, customers, agencies, friends and adversaries whom I have worked with over the years and I wish everyone good health and success for the future. 

“My new office will be my local golf club, where I hope to concentrate on lowering my playing handicap so please wish me good luck. ‘Stay safe everyone’ and I hope our paths cross again someday.”

We wish Mr. Yates all the best!

  1. I admit I didn’t know who he was but regardless; All the best Mr Yates!
    By the way, I wonder if he plays Mario Golf? Would seem to make sense if he does.
