Today is quite a sad day for Nintendo fans along with many other gamers, not to mention those directly related. Unfortunately, it was announced that Satoru Iwata, President of Nintendo of Japan, passed away earlier this week (July 11th 2015) due to complication with his bile duct growth.
I myself took this as a shock. Though he has been head during some risky times with Nintendo, I still thought he did a fantastic job running the company. Whether he was overseeing huge projects or staring at a bundle of bananas, he will definitely be missed. We send our condolences to his family and his coworkers at Nintendo.
RIP Satoru Iwata
December 1959 – July 2015
