Nintendo President Satoru Iwata Has Passed Away

Today, Nintendo announced the deeply saddening news that Nintendo President Satoru Iwata passed away on 11th July 2015.


Iwata at the 2014 Nintendo Digital Event.

Iwata was a great man who, among many things, changed the way Nintendo interacted with its fans, with his informative “Iwata Asks” interviews and delightful “Nintendo Direct” presentations.

In a sense, Iwata was a friend to Nintendo fans across the globe. Although he may be gone, his legacy will surely live on in our hearts.

Rest in peace, Mr. Iwata.
