Nintendo will move some jobs from Redmond, Wash. down to California's Silicon Valley

Nintendo of America is finally coming to the esteemed Silicon Valley!  As many as 55 jobs will leave Redmond, Wash. to make the journey to one of three possible Silicon Valley locations.  The new office will likely start out as solely a sales and marketing office only.

In an exclusive interview with the San Jose Mercury News, Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime disclosed some of the company's plans for the future.

The sales and marketing move may shake up the company more than some think.  In fact, rumors have been circulating that several key members of the marketing and communications departments may be leaving -- including George Harrison and Perrin Kaplan.

It is relatively unknown what state the sales and marketing team will be in soon.  A statement sent to Gamasutra reveals that four out of every ten employees will be making a move to New York or the California Bay Area.  More importantly, the possible loss of Harrison and Kaplan could make things a bit more interesting.

"It's essential to spend physical time with people from other companies, to be involved with them as neighbors and do business with them face to face," said Fils-Aime.
