Nintendo President Satoru Iwata Has Passed Away

Unfortunately Satoru Iwata, a beloved figure in the gaming industry and Nintendo President, has died due to a bile duct growth. His health had been a concern for awhile and he finally succumbed to cancer. He was at the helm of Nintendo through the success of both the Nintendo DS and 3DS as well as the struggles of the GameCube and Wii U.

His fun Nintendo Direct presentations will be sorely missed and Nintendo won’t be the same without him. Rest in Peace.

Let’s use the comments on this article to celebrate his life. Please share your favorite memory about him or developments made at Nintendo under his leadership.
