Doug Bowser, the president of Nintendo of Americas, sent an internal letter to employees yesterday acknowledging the media coverage of complaints about worker conduct. He stated that we will continue to investigate any allegations we discover. These most recent allegations are being investigated by us.
Bowser assured current employees that Nintendo was taking the allegations seriously.
Doug wrote. We will always investigate any allegations we discover. These most recent allegations are still being investigated.
The Bowsers message was received on the same day as Kotaku released an investigation report about female contractors who had experienced sexual harassment while working as game testers at the Nintendo of Americas Redmond, Washington, facility. Our sources accused two managers who work or had worked at Nintendo of workplace misconduct, and the report described an internal workplace culture that was like a frat house.
Bowser described the sexual harassment allegations against Activision Blizzard as troubling and worrisome, claiming that [sexual harassment and toxicity] run counter to my values as well as Nintendo's beliefs, values, and policies. Several days later, Nintendo updated its corporate governance document with a promise to increase the number of female managers at the company.
