No shocker here: Nintendo's Vice President of Marketing, Perrin Kaplan
, will be joining George Harrison
and Beth Llewelyn
at the end of this year by not continuing
to work for the Big N. After being employed by Nintendo for some 15 years, Kaplan has now announced that she "will be leaving the outfit at the end of the year," but noted that until that day, she will remain "focused on getting a great transition team in place and handling all of her normal responsibilities as well." As with Ms. Llewelyn, no replacement has been named just yet, but we can't imagine the firm wasting any time finding a sufficient successor.
