PostSubject: Nintendo CEO Satoru Iwata passes away   Mon Jul 13, 2015 9:16 am

It was reported last night that Mr. Iwata died from Bile Duct Growth at the age of 55.
We had known for a while that he had gone through a lot of medical procedures, but to have this happen so suddenly was just something I wasn't prepared for so early in the morning.

Mr. Iwata was responsible for some of the most enjoyable moments in my life. He wasn't really made aware of properly until about five or six years ago, but he definitely made a huge impression. What I liked about him the most was his sense of fun as well as his drive and passion for the business. It was combination you never really saw from a lot of businessmen so he felt like a breath of fresh air.

The other purpose of this thread is to share some stories about how you first heard about him and what you liked the most.

R.I.P. Mr. Iwata and a huge thank you. For everything.

"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."

It's still unbelievable to know the face of Nintendo has gone so suddenly and at a young age.

Likewise, I have to say Mr. Iwata has been responsible for games that have had a huge impact on my life. He understood how important it is for videogames to simply be fun and he always gave off this really friendly and passionate air. It's a tragedy to lose him, he deserved better.

Thank you, Mr. Iwata. We won't forget you. I hope you Rest in Peace.

After two months, Nintendo's next president is... Tatsumi Kimishima.

Wouldn't have been my first choice, but I don't know how to run a huge company so I'm sure they've made a wise decision. Even so, the man has an impressive background. I don't think he'll quite be as enjoyable as Iwata, but to be fair, that's a pretty tough accomplishment. He's got some pretty big shoes to fill, but I think he's up to the task.
