Sadness has swept to Nintendo fans everywhere today as we learn that Nintendo's president Satoru Iwara has passed away today (July 12 2015).
It breaks my heart to hear that the man responsible for my entire life involvement in video games has passed away. I grew up with Nintendo with the SNES being my first console when I was a around 3 years old. I have only ever owned Nintendo consoles playing Mario, Yoshi, Zelda, and pokemon games to this current day.
He will be missed greatly. Rest in peace Mr. Iwata.
