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