We lost a great man on July 11th, 2016. Many of you may not know who Satoru Iwata is beyond the quick blip stating he is was the president for Nintendo. For those who don’t fully comprehend, Iwata contributed to games such as Earthbound and Kirby as well as developing Pokemon and Super Smash Bros. The Nintendo DS and Wii were developed under his guidance; and when the 3DS and Wii Udidn’t do so well, he actually cut his pay as an apology. Iwata believed that video games were for everyone, and that is how he ran his company.
Iwata was only 55 years old when he succumbed to complications from a tumor in his bile duct. Gone before his time, he will be greatly missed.
Thank you Mr Iwata for all you have done for the world.
