Iwata, Thank You For Your Service

Just Confirmed: Nintendo President Satoru Iwata has passed away at the age of 55. Last year he announced health issues regarding a slow-growing, but painful, cancer, and underwent surgery for it. His health appeared to be improving, but ultimately it has taken his life.

Iwata has been with Nintendo since the 1980's. He has seen the rise, and fall, and rise again of video games, helping lead the company through it's greatest successes, and some of it's flops.

Good thoughts and prayers for his family and to his second family at Nintendo.
