Late Nintendo president Satoru Iwata passed away from bile duct cancer last July. Yet up until his death, he still continued to be deeply involved with different projects, such as Pokemon GO.
The guy was the most genuine legend in the gaming industry, he really put everything he had into Nintendo. Rest in peace Iwata.
As Playstation fan, I respect him.
Agreed the whole industry should respect this man's dedication to his craft.
Lmao as a PlayStation fan? What does that have to do with anything? @remixx below "The fact"? Lol how do you know? Ohh so even a one dimensional Sony fanboy can respect his dedication? That's nice. As a human being I can also respect that.
@Opinion I'm guessing it had to do with the fact that he never really played nintendo related games but even he can look over the fence and see what a legend iwata was while never enjoying his craft.
I wonder where Nintendo would be today without him.
What dedication. A true inspirer, and an amazing human being. I hope he's laughing in heaven :' ( .
He helped shape what gaming is today for the better, trust me he's laughing bro, he did his job unbelievable well regardless of his mistakes, he's a legend.
He made some questionable decisions but he did a lot of great things for Nintendo and gaming. Will Kimishima live up to Iwatas legacy? Only time will tell.
Pure dedication, but that's probably why Hiroshi Yamauchi picked him as his successor.
I think the fact he did so much to help with Pokèmon GO, will make its success a sort of last hurrah for his career. He really was willing to step outside of the box and try new things, and even if they didn't always become popular, they still reflected his, and Nintendo's, efforts to try and offer something different at every turn to the gamers they serve. A toast to Iwata. May his afterlife be the kind of huge adventure that even legends pale to.
That's beyond dedication. He was truly in love with his profession
Iwata was all about go big or go home. We saw that success with DS, we saw it with Wii, and now we see it with Pokemon GO. Sure, sometimes you get a Wii U, it's not all big wins... but as long as the console at least has great games, I can roll with it.
Shit. I didn't always agree with his decisions, but If that ain't dedication, I don't know what is. I can def respect that. RIP Iwata
I remember during his passing someone dedicated this song to him... I'll never forget it. RIP Iwata and long live Nintendo thanks to you! https://youtu.be/J67nkzoJ_2...
