• Satoru Iwata has died.


    Nintendo Co. Ltd. released a one-sentence press release this morning containing sad news: Satoru Iwata passed away on Saturday.

    The cites Iwata-san's bile duct problem as the cause of death.

    My thoughts are with his family and friends.

    This is a sad day for Nintendo. Sure, some questioned his leadership as Nintendo boldly, if not stubbornly, stayed on its own path. But he also led the company through its most profitable era ever.

    :iwata: In the end, will we ever understand?

    The release implies that Shigeru Miyamoto and Genyo Takeda will run the company in the interim.

    He wasn't perfect but nobody is. What he was is a good and honorable man. And obviously strong. Wasn't even aware had that operation and cancer itself. .We can all look back now on the E3 starfox intro as his last connection with Nintendo fans. I went back and watched it again and it ironically seems less eerie now. It seems like his farewell was through the starfox medium created by miyamoto. as a starfox fanatic I am enthralled by that.  RIP
