Satoru Iwata, the president of Nintendo is not going to attend E3 2014. A Nintendo representative confirmed to Polygon today.
Poor Iwata must be under an immense amount of stress.
Stop relating everything to gaming. Just please.
That's a horrible thing to say.....but I still giggled a bit.
Well that's a shame, hope he feels better soon.
Yes. And whats worse is we'll probably end up getting even more Regimendations at E3. *Shutters*.
This of all the E3s that Nintendo has attended may be their most important yet. They need some positive vibe heading into the rest of the year. I feel bad for Iwata cause the past few years must be really stressful for him. Hope things are a lot easier for Iwata the rest of the year.
Iwata feel better soon man!
Hope it's not anything serious! ^^^^ I'd hate to only have 3 bubbles, I cant imagine living with only one lol
Job is getting to him
Or people just get ill...
Hard to say if this is stress related or not, though I could understand if it was. Hopefully he feels better soon.
I hope his health gets better soon
His body is not ready.
This isn't "stress" related. Obviously he is going through some health issues that is preventing him from traveling. Is it seriously? We don't know, but he's keeping it private. Hope he feels better.
Well we cant say it's NOT stress, but, like you, I do hope he feels better, whatever the cause.
He's never shied away from public appearances before, so I'm more inclined to believe that he has some real health issue.
Yeah but he has ducked responsibility before. If that supposed e3 list is a real leak, then no wonder Iwata would announce this sickness so close to e3. "Please Understand"
Poor guy. Hope he feels better soon.
I hope its just because of stress and nothing more. It would slbe horrible if it was a serious illness like cancer for example.
Bet it's stress. Stress can kill. He needs to relax and pass off some of his duties on to his deputies.
Sure he is. He's skipping to avoid the storm from a bad showing.
Wow, I guess your trolling knows no bounds. Can you leave your fanboyism as the door for one minute? This is someone's health and well being; your immaturity and console war nonsense has no business here. Sit in the corner and think about your actions. You can join the big kids when you realize life doesn't revolve around your pointless console war.
Seriously go sit in corner kid. A man's health is in question and you talk big and troll. I feel sorry people like you.
That's just low. Remember your comment when someone in your life is ill. Its people like you who give gaming a bad name. Grow up as you never know you maybe ill one day and you would not like people saying bad things about you. As the guys above said go and sit in a corner and think about what you just said. As for Mr Iwata hope he feels better soon never good being unwell no matter if its just a cold or something more serious.
It could be anything don't assume stress just because of how Nintendo is doing I'm sure there is stress involved but when ur in a high up position like he is he would know how to handle stress. I hope he gets better
Maybe he has kids in daycare and gets sick like me every other week... I swear those places will be the spawn of an apocolyptic outbreak. Feel better Iwata!
Is it that bad?
I've never had the stomach flu, like ever. Then within almost a year of daycare I've had to 3x and the wife twice. The sad thing is, they bleach and scrub the place every night and morning, it's the other parents who drop off their kids knowing full well they're sick to begin with infecting everyone else.
Anyone relating his health to gaming or Nintendo's finances please don't. He is human. Feel better sir!

so who doing E3? the leader of Nintendo America?
I hope he's allright. I bet he isn't thrilled about missing E3
Anyone who has ever been on long over seas plane trips can sympathize as well. Tokyo to LA is a bitch of a flight.
What he needs is a vitality sensor hooks up to him so Dr. Mario can monitor him.
Do not trust Dr. Mario. He isn't a real doctor.
