Hiroshi Yamauchi, the former president of Nintendo and the company’s biggest shareholder, has slipped from the number one spot on the Japanese rich list. Yamauchi who was previously the wealthiest business man in Japan now sits at number thirteen. Yamauchi ran the Kyoto based company for 55 years before retiring in 2005. His wealth dropped for the second year straight due to Nintendo’s falling share price which is down 17% due to lacklustre sales of Wii U.
