May Iwata-san find the hidden beanstalk and climb his way to the Heavens. Crying or Very sad

@Kushina yeah me too Sad I fear for Nintendos future, the same way I'd fear if he got fired or resigned... It's sad people are NOW just taking back their hate comments and saying how great he was... Neutral the time to say that stuff is in life, not death Neutral

Iwata-sama is the reason I have no worries about the company's future. When Hiroshi Yamauchi retired, we all thought Nintendo would be in trouble. He was a brilliant leader, for sure, but Iwata showed us that passion, charm, and a love of fun are the Nintendo legacy, not just its people. Despite the moments of negativity we've all been prone to in recent years, I'm glad to see that people have begun to look back and realize all the wonderful things Iwata-sama ushered into the world of Nintendo. He deserves our thanks and he will be forever missed by all in and around this industry.

It's looking like Miyamoto-san could be the next president of Nintendo. I think Nintendo would definitely be safe in his hands. Wink

Nintendo will never be the same. Rest in peace Iwata. Sad
