Saturday July 11th Nintendo's CEO and President of Nintendo of America passed away of a bile duct growth in his body. A form of Cancer. Perhaps a lot of you guys are up to speed about it. He's been in the game industry since 1989 and had a direct hand in games like Kirby's Adventure, Earthbound and many other things.

So I share my condolences for all the good things he left behind to bring us joy!

I myself have had 4 people pass away in my family area over the past 5 years and I sympothize with his family at home and all his friends. He was a nice individual and a lot of people respected him if my observations do not lead me astray.

R.I.P Iwata San

Here is the official Notification of death.

I heard on Monday night, but it didn't really hit me until Tuesday. He will be missed. Cry
