Just under two weeks after Nintendo marketing VP George Harrison confirmed his departure, Nintendo's PR head Beth Llewelyn has also announced to the media that she is leaving the firm, due to her division's relocation to the Bay Area.

In an official statement sent to media outlets, Llewelyn revealed that her last day at Nintendo is Friday, September 28th, and commented that "...I am not relocating to the Bay Area with the company. It was a very tough decision, but ultimately my family and I decided it wasn't the right move for us."

Llewelyn also cited her wish to "[take] some time off to be a full-time mom", but joins a possible triumvirate of major Nintendo public figures to spurn the firm's sales and marketing staff from their current Redmond, Washington offices to Redwood City in the Bay Area.

Alongside the departure of Llewelyn and Harrison, the third executive reported to be lieaving is vice president of marketing and corporate affairs Perrin Kaplan - but no official statement has been made as of yet on her status at the relocated Nintendo office.
