Nintendo's Satoru Iwata has passed away 

Sad news out of Nintendo today.  CEO of Nintendo America Satoru Iwata who had overseen the release of so many wonderful games in his thirteen years at Nintendo died of complications from the removal of growths on his bile duct.  Iwata was beloved by fans of Nintendo for his playful appearances in Nintendo Directs in the last couple of years.  He always appeared to be a happy, kind man, and the video game industry is made less by his passing.  Our thoughts go out to his family and co-workers.

 

Here is the press release from Nintendo.
