Nintendo has just revealed on their Japanese website, that Mr. Satoru Iwata (Nintendo President) has passed away on Saturday, July 11th, 2015. The cause of death was a bile duct growth, which took away this amazing man at the young age of 55. With this shocking news that Mr. Iwata was taken from this world far too early, it comes with a heavy heart and many tears to write this and offer my deepest condolences to the man’s family, friends, and colleagues.

The world has definitely taken a hard loss here. For me personally, I truly value good people and even though Mr. Iwata and I have only met on several occasions, on each one I could tell that he was a quality individual. From E3’s 2003 to 2013, thank you sir for being a kind friend, amazing person to look up to, and someone who has helped contribute so much to the world. Rest in Peace and here’s you staying in our hearts and minds, forever.
