His Legend Will Live On!

 photo 630x_zps31c78c4f.jpg

The former Nintendo president Hiroshi Yamauchi has passed away today at the age of 85. A man of great intellect and creativeness he became president of the company in 1949 and became interested in electronic entertainment in the 70's. He would later entrust his vision to the then young Shigeru Miyamoto who captivated the world with his legendary arcade title Donkey Kong!

He remained president of the company until May 31st 2002 when he handed the baton to the current president of Nintendo Satoru Iwata.
