Rest in Peace, Iwata-San 

It was announced this morning via a statement from Nintendo that sadly on Saturday, Nintendo’s president Satoru Iwata, had passed away.

He has been suffering from bile duct growth, causing him to miss E3 in 2014. Nintendo stated he missed this years due to other work commitments.

Once a game developer himself with Nintendo, Iwata was a hugely influential figure within today’s gaming community thanks to his fun loving persona and his driving passion for high quality playable games to be at the forefront of Nintendo’s consoles. He fronted a large number of the Nintendo Direct videos, speaking directly to us gamers, about what they were working on next.

His inescapable passion for gaming made him more than a company president in a suit.

RIP Satoru Iwata from all of us here at
