Former Nintendo president Hiroshi Yamauchi is no longer Japan’s richest person, currently in 13th place

Former Nintendo president Hiroshi Yamauchi has $2.1 billion in the bank, but unfortunately that’s no longer enough to keep him on top of Japan’s ‘Richest People’ list. Due to Nintendo’s falling share price, Yamauchi has dropped to “only” 13th place on the list since he still owns more shares of the company than anyone else. After running the company for 55 years he’s probably wondering where things are headed, but I’m guessing he has more a say in the goings-on over at NCL HQ than a lot of folks.
