A lot of sites are reporting that there will be a shakeup of big names within Nintendo Of America soon.

Sites like Joystiq, the Hylia, the Tanooki are reporting this major piece of news. All the sites point to Game Informer Online is reporting that 90% of the sales and marketing staff of NOA is not moving when Nintendo relocates. Of those 90% are three big names within the company and they are Senior Director of Public Relations Beth Llewelyn; Vice President, Marking and Corporate Affairs Perrin Kaplan; and Senior Vice President, Marketing and Corporate Communications George Harrison.

You should, however, take this as a rumor for the time being. Game Informer Online even states that they are awaiting the official word from Nintendo for this news.

If this turns out to be true, this means there will more than likely be a shaky period from now until they hire new people into the jobs. That doesn’t mean you should expect anything less from Nintendo in the near future.
