BREAKING NEWS: Satoru Iwata passed away

Bad news came from Nintendo today. Satoru Iwata, CEO of Nintendo passed away after surgery.

This news comes as a shock to everybody and our hearts go out to his family and co-workers.

Nintendo released the official statement today, which was rather short but straightforward:

“Nintendo Co., Ltd. deeply regrets to announce that President Satoru Iwata passed away on July 11, 2015 due to a bile duct growth.”

Iwata was struggling with is health but it looked like he never really recovered. The Directs will never be the same again.

Got interested in games since I could read. Started with Nintendo but evolved into an all-round gamer. I love all kind of games; triple A games to Indie. If the vibe is right, I'll enjoy playing it.
