Sad news. Satoru Iwata president of Nintendo passed away at 55. Rest in Peace. You'll be missed.
Rest in Peace. We've lost a great one today. His legacy will forever have an impact on the gaming industry
I wonder how this will change Nintendo
Definitively a huge loss for Nintendo and for all gamers, I've never been a Nintendo fan but I fell sad because without him at the lead of the big N, the industry would have been really different.
R.I.P. Satoru Iwata, you'll be missed.
God bless that brilliant man
A positive force in the industry. My respects.
He was in a very bad shape lately and losing weight at an alarming rate, but the news was really surprising.
I won't be fake and demagogue and fawn over how "brilliant and genius" he is, because he made some glaring bad choices throughout his career (especially at the end), but he seemed like a genuinely decent and kind human being. And that's why it's always sad to see someone like that go before their time.
He's in a much better place.
Edit: I love how Toucharcade's writers and journalists have always something to say when it comes to feeding their readers positive rumours and stories of Nintendo jumping to mobile, but can't even be bothered to write up something about this news, since it signals perhaps a shift in the company's future vision and strategy. Guess they excell in snarky, holier than thou think pieces and bashing different opinions than theirs, but not in actual news reporting that can truly impact the gaming industry as a whole.
He died, that's sad. And he left a huge legacy.
But what has touchArcade criticism to do in a condolences thread?
You also tend to assume quite a lot.
Furthermore - why are people always suggesting that lying in a wooden box six feet under is actually a better place?
Just keep it real, guys.
Happily sitting in my easy chair Splatoon on the big screen, 3DS and many faves on the arm of the chair and typing on my iPhone 6, wouldn't have it any other way...R.I.P.
proper sad. Kept the fun in videogames. Rest in Peace, sir.
Rest in peace Satoru Iwata
terrific article, Andy - and a terrific avatar too. There was a nice piece in the Guardian too today (not as good as Scullion's but still very good).
Satoru Iwata has been a great influence on Nintendo and the products he helped bring to life. All while managing to retain his humility and humour despite the many great pressures he faced. He will be missed.
He brought me a ton of happiness growing up that has stayed with me to today. Rest in peace game maker.
On my business card, I am a corporate president. In my mind, I am a game developer. But in my heart, I am a gamer.
Thank you Satoru and rest in peace
Rest in peace.
I'm a fan of your games, Mr. Iwata.
