For those of you who don't know, the President and CEO of Nintendo, Satoru Iwata, passed away yesterday at the age of 55 as a result of an unexpected bile duct growth. When I first learned about this last night, I was genuinely shocked because I wasn't aware of this condition he had, as he looked perfectly fine to me whenever he appeared on something such as the Nintendo Direct videos. Still, this is an unfortunate loss in the gaming industry. Currently, there has been no announcement made as to who will succeed Iwata as the new President of Nintendo. Mr. Iwata, you shall not be forgotten.
