Re: RIP Satoru Iwata


As a human being, I am saddened by his passing and I send my condolences to his friends and family. I had no idea he was sick either, but my understanding is that's typical in big Japanese companies, stuff like that is kept very close to the vest.

as a fan of Nintendo, hiowever, I'm cautiously optimistic about the reigns being given over to someone else. This isn't the thread for that, though, so :rip Iwata-San.

He skipped E3 last year for the Bile duct thing. It's a shame. RIP Iwata-san.

He was a rare breed, someone with both technical chops and the ability to give the company its overall vision and direction. Considering this is kind of a crucial time for Nintendo, I hope they can find somebody who can take over for him. Not going to be easy.

Sadly, I don't think I've ever played the games that he personally worked on. But as the compass of the company, his vision no doubt influenced everything put out under Nintendo's name. Been seeing lots of great tributes to the man. That's a testament to the legacy he's left.
