    No way. I can't believe it. He was pretty much synonymous with Nintendo these days. Never even heard he had health complications. Feels like a punch out of nowhere.

    RIP :(

    Now that is unexpected. I'm surprised nothing was on TV about it.

    This was pretty sudden though. I'm not surprised many people haven't learned about it until today. Maybe something will be on T.V. tomorrow. Who knows.

    It's not from a Nintendo game, but it's a song from a sad moment in a game i love, so i'm using it as a small tribute.

    So sad to read this, first thing I read when checking my phone this morning... completely unexpected!

    We owe him so much! I salute you Iwata-san, may you RIP.

    This will be a great blow to the company, I wonder who will take his place.
