I grew up with this man's work. This man help change my life. Its truly depressing to hear that he is gone..
rip, i hope the envision he had for the NX does him proud, kinda hoping itll be called something like the nintendo iwata
I'm truly affected by this all. Being a Nintendo girl, I am pained to know that Iwata-san is gone. But hear me on this. We mustn't mourn for Iwata. If we mourn we are disgracing what he has done. His goal was to make others joyful, not sad. And we are dishonoring what he worked through to the very end. Instead, we must cherish what he has done, and what is still yet to come, because I know that's what HE would've wanted. Thank you, Iwata-san.
"Remember when Iwata spent three weeks alongside the Melee team debugging the gameplay so they could make their deadlinesRemember when Iwata cut his pay when the Wii U was losing fiscally to make sure nobody on his team had to suffer on behalf of those losses, because he believed the system couldn’t make it without everyone’s participationRemember when he ported Pokemon Stadium’s battle system in a week without reference sheetsRemember when he originally helped work on Mother and basically helped the series existRemember when he compressed Pokemon Gold and Silver to even less than half its original size to fit in Kanto, something the original dev team didn’t even think was something they were gonna do or even could do themselvesRemember all those goofy montages he went out of his way to make fun of himself for so we could laughRemember how he refused to let Nintendo become active on the mobile market, effectively having made the company truer to core principles of videogames than mostRemember how people actually hated him and how he had to return from work tired every night probably having to keep this in mindHe was only 55We lost someone legitWe’ll never forget you Iwata"Saw this is a comment section and I wanted to share it here...
