    Sounds like he died from cholangiocarcinoma, a rare but deadly cancer of the bile ducts.

    Truly an industry icon.

    Interested to see how Nintendo's direction or culture changes if at all.

    So sad. :( Mr. Iwata was one of the main guys responsible for the Kirby series. Kirby is one of my favorite video game characters ever.

    “On my business card, I am a corporate president. In my mind, I am a game developer. But in my heart, I am a gamer.” --Satoru Iwata

    RIP- you did good work, Iwata-sensai. Nintendo was turning the curve by finally licensing their characters. Now they won't be gobbled buy by Disney like every other A franchise.
