On July 11, 2015 Nintendo President and former HAL Laboratory programmer Satoru Iwata has passed away at the age of 55. A statement was released on July 12th stating that he passed away from a bile duct growth. He will be remembered by gamers worldwide as a great person and the man who brought Nintendo into the next generations. A copy of the statement I’ll leave at the bottom of this article.

-My hat’s off to you Iwata.
