A Nintendo representative has told online gaming publication Polygon that Nintendo president Satoru Iwata won’t be attending E3 next week due to health related reasons. Iwata has been instructed by his physician not to travel overseas at this moment in time. However, it’s still business as usual for the Nintendo president.
“He’s been instructed by his physician not to travel overseas in the immediate future, and so he will not be making the trip to Los Angeles. Please understand that it is business as usual for Mr. Iwata, and he continues his normal duties as president of Nintendo Co., Ltd. while he remains in Japan. As always, he will be actively involved in all of Nintendo’s activities at the show.”
Thanks to everyone who sent this in.
I hope he does soon…
Oh, yeah that’s what I meant. Hopefully a better person would be put in charge.
ya heartress bastard, i rove you
Today’s Sermen… Iwata’s punishment from God..
Iwata is being punished with cancer for lewd activity with elderly helpless men and women. He is fornicator and a sinner.. He has murdered countless helpless animals and even made a down syndromen man eat his own semen. Iwata must be stopped and this is gods way of doing so.
Your name is “Church of Sasori” yet you are claiming this “God” is your god and not Sasori when in earlier articles you stated Sasori is your god, therefore, you have no clue what you are worshipping and you still exposed yourself as sasori’s alt account because no one is that stupid enough to contradict themselves.
Probably just an ape with zero intelligence…
I don’t believe it has zero intelligence, logical detective reasoning concludes its IQ seems to be in the high negatives.
i really dont know who is “church of sasori”. i like starting to like it lol.
Playing the lair card will not get you anywhere, considering that you’ve played it multiple times and yet you still get exposed by those you are trying to expose.
Yes you do, you are all of these pathetic apes…
Get a life you faggotty ass neck beard.
-Savage language detected-
Only a brain dead neo-nazi like yourself would. I will still continue to pray to REAL God to unleash his plans on you real soon sick bastard of a brokeback gorilla.
are you serious man? I’m a Sony Fan of hell but Mr. Iwata is a good person. You must Show some respect to Mr. Iwata, You MOTHERFUCKER who likes sucks men balls.
For once we agree Sonyan Assassin Nova…
He’ll. Be marked as a traitor from here on out the sony army doesnt unite with the enemy unless orders from above
Weren’t you a Commander just a while ago?…
Did you get demoted?…
That soldier needs his own name…..our empires name list isnt present here get another name bud
Wow, seriously? Would you say that to him directly? The internet’s indeed full of incredibly pathetic people.
i would, don’t you worry your stupid little head
Yeah and then see your ass tossed out like a bitch looking for fun- I mean fix for her sex drive, and then be hit purposely by a car of their own free will…tell me how that will turn out once your back. :)
You’re a loser, Donko. Just like sasori & Nostalgia_w. Wishing death on a good person. Pathetic.
No. Only a pussy wouldn’t talk shit in front of anybody without having his rasin balls kicked in or face broken into 10 pieces.
Haha. Exactly. People should show Iwata some respect. This guy made Nintendo millions. How would he like it if someone told him to die? The internet is full of heartless morons.
You guys are seriously pathetic, hiding behind internet anonymity.
wanna my name?eh, you asshole, ya tard, ya imbecile, ya piece of shite
I ran out of cookies but you moron deserve a lot of them. Here is a badge saying “moron” which is very appropriate considering the quality of your contributions to our community. You’re welcome!
I never knew anyone could stoop lower than sasori, you take the cake, and to call you Sasori II would be an insult to the original lolcow.
You sick Son of a Bitch. How can you desire for someone inoffensive to die only because of your own stupid perceptions that you constantly pull out of your ass. You deserve to be cremated alive for saying that.
On the bright side hopefully we get more of the Regginator
Iwata should die, his kids should die, his family to, his dog should die gorely, kids also die gorely
I should die while my Sony fanboyfriend butt fucks my coffin
You’re one of the best Anti-Trolls ever…
tnx, i thought you said i was sick for saying that, but it seems that iwata’s death is approved even by you
Thanks for proving that you’re the troll and not the anti-troll…
Now begone and wither somewhere where I don’t care…
Lmao theres a lot of wackos on this site they must of escaped the umbrella lab
“gorely”? That’s not a word.
Shhhh let the idiot think what he wants
I knew some people on this website were sick in the head, but I didn’t know that they were mentally ill…
What has Iwata done to you? He made not have been the best leader, but at least he’s redeeming himself. What have you done for your society rather being a complete jerk?
I hope you feel ashamed of yourself.
unfortunately he doesn’t because he feels that being at the other side of the screen gives him power to said whatever he wants. The internet trolls should just die more painfully than anybody else.
oh shit, to get you to rely to a troll is a feat of its own…I have never thought of you to reply to one…BAN THEIR ASSES MAN!
Yeah, he is mentally ill and needs help fast… Iwata’s a good leader and deserves some respect. Telling someone’s family and kids to die is just awful.
You need to delete these primitive life-forms so we can have a moments peace again…
Why don’t you go suck that japs underage vagina rape juice covered penis of his. That man does a terrible job, he should die, he should be executed.
You’re a nobody, your whole pathetic existence must cease at once…
And you should have your hands cut off along with your tongue, so you can never say or type such worthless stuff again. Even if you are possibly trolling just for the “fun” of it, you still need some serious help.
hey sickr, i think iwata was still a bad president even during the wii u era. kai from sony was even way better than iwata.
No, your just an idiot who can never provide evidence, and even if you could, that is a subjective and debatable topic where other evidence can be brought up to counter it, therefore your argument is still invalid.
LOL tell him sweetie…LOL
Don’t even talk to Sickr you unevolved life-form…
its kaz, recently he hasn’t been doing to well, he isn’t in charge of ps division thats a whole another guy, but the guy has made sony lose money by making them going into market(computers and few other product i believe) and has made sony lose billions. Not to much the massive number of layoffs. PS head is good ceo, he does seem more open then iwata.
You must eradicate these pathetic life forms with inferiority complexes from this place so we can have peace again.
i see, i got your attention, heeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeh
Jokes on you!
Too bad that your kinds dont get it outside of internet. LOSER!
Sickr, Let me introduce you to the effects of poor moderation. I understand that WordPress makes it hard to set up moderation but unfortunately, you have let the idiots rule the comment section. These people are sick and only prevent actual, thoughtful comments from being seen by others.
You are right! I’m planning on making it so that only people who log in with their email can comment on this site and go from there :-)
Well I guess that will get rid of me then because I use my twitter account to log in.
Aslong as it’s not Facebook because I don’t have it and I hate it…
Cool, Now I can comment, without having to think about the trolls
why do too far. your moderation is alright.
Great. Kill the pathetic trolls. This site has the best Nintendo articles around.
What is wrong with you?!
Yo Sockr, ban this fucker quick if you see this message.
“please understand…” Wish you well, Iwata.
I wonder if he avoiding one questione we been having since july 30 last year? where is the new date of flipnote stuido 3d?
Hope he gets well
Aw, hope he gets well soon! Wonder if they already have made the Nintendo Digital Event video, in that case he might be in it!
Nintendo usually records the Iwata segments in Japan, so even if they haven’t done it, he will appear, as he just can’t leave Japan, but continues to work.
Probably some back injury or similar…
I completely forgot about flipnote. 3d O_o
I think he is scared to face the media ridicule of the Wii U failing to impress the public with upcoming games,it seems like Nintendo will face the same negative press from the media they did with the Nintendo Land debacle.
It definitely sounds fishy that these news come out just days before E3.
To me its a sign that Nintendo will once again fail in this year’s event and become the laughing stock of the industry once again.
Because they don’t have the media in Japan……
He hasn’t been to E3 even the good stuff started happening, it wouldn’t matter if showed up the investors would still get on his ass. Sony pez hasn’t shown up in the past to e3 and they still had tons to show. iwata was there last year even when they didn’t have whole lot.
I will retroactively agree with this if Nintendo’s E3 really does tank.
Or, he’s recognized that people don’t like him as a representative, and is bowing out for the sake of appeasing the faction that wants to see less of him, to make more people watch.
That, or he’s, you know ACTUALLY SICK.
In either case, though, you’re being a complete ass.
Just like the Sonyans waited for the Xbots to make a fool of themselves and then scrath their own horribles DRM ideas right before their conference…
Much like they will be doing this year, cowarding behind the Xbots to see how much flaws they make and then taking it away themselves…
True that. In my opinion Sony is even worse than Ms, i mean atleast Ms had balls to tell their plans even though they were wrong.
Sony has been shadow now instead of a titan when it use to be in PS2 days.
There you are comrade…
I haven’t seen you in a few days, you probably seen the amount of trolls attacking me…
1., its health related issue just like Steve Jobs having to skip a couple of conferences to fight cancer and 2. You overlooked Wii U’s sales surge over the past few days thanks to MK8 which sold 1.2 in less than 2 days alone, had a higher rating/recommendation/public awarenss & internet fame with Luigi Death Stare compare to that GTA knockoff Watchdogs AND won multiple Game of the Month awards from various media sources.
So again, Wii U is failing? lol
You do reliaze that the Wii u is selling well right now because of mario kart 8 right? (Plus, the Wii u is profitable now too).
Nintendo has nothing to show from the game, so enjoy not coming, not to disgrace!
The man is sick and you assholes continue with your shit. Seriously when will it stop? Do you guys feel good when you continue the shit? Does it buld your low self esteem? They’re doing a DIGITAL event meaning it’s already recorded. Iwata being sick isn’t going to affect anything. When e3 comes maybe you dumbasses will shut up.
I really don’t get why most people focus all their energy in swearing and hating and get to say such horrible things. They need to get out of their houses, seriously.
* and face the offline-life.
That shows how ugly the internet can be.
This site has lots of attention seeking people with low self esteem. They do all this bs on this site just to get attention and to have some sort of meaning. I mean look at how many people come here to tell what systems ones should and not have, they think that will give them meaning to tell everyone how “bad” WiiU is and how “good” Ps4 or One is.
So you too wish ill of one of the main men of the gaming industry that made more money than you? What are you, a careless 8 year old? No heart? Oh…no brain…because it seems most of you didn’t read it clearly before opening the mouth, that statement will come back to haunt your ass, and its called “Karma”. Just remember, once things start happening bad on you and you get pissed off of whatever it is…remember your statement here.
karma isn’t real, and if it was, who’s to say that this isn’t his karma, and it’s coming to him because he’s a shitty person, don’t tell me he isn’t you can’t know it, he seems like a nice asian man, but does that make him one?
Enjoy the Karma when you experience an “Accident” in the near future…
How do you know he’s a shitty person? Are you his lover or something? Do you know him in real life and have actually sat down to talk to him in person? I believe not and you are just pulling up assumptions from your disfigured ass.
A lowlife like you would not believe in such things. It helps you feel good about being such a worthless human being, doesn’t it?
So you mean to tell me that you never experienced anything bad that happened to you or anything good? You Honestly don’t know what karma is do you?
he sweeting bullets because he already know xbox one will continue to trash wii u.
Can you show me proof?
Because in the charts I’m seeing…
Wii U is trashing your Xbomb, especially right now with MK8 out.
You have been proven invalid.
When did the Xbox Done ever “trash” the Wii U?…
Our holy machine trashes your abomination without any games…
How do you sweet bullets? Is that even possible?
i think he means sweating buckets lol.
NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The Nintendo Triforce will not be completed without him!
This just proves that Nintendo finished with games and consoles!
Probably in 2016 will no longer be anything from Nintendo!
Gamers are to blame for ovkav outcome did not buy their projizvode!
Can I save this comment of your to show you 2 years from here? Or should I not bother with your free hate and attention whoring?
Don’t bother. He’ll just pretend you’re lying your ass off in 2 years. Or he says so much hateful stuff that he can’t even remember his last hateful comment from 2-3 weeks ago.
Much less remember the shit that came out of his mouth 2 years prior.
He has been report previously that he hasn’t been feeling well. I do wonder who is going to take his place. Reggie most likely.
sounds like he is still doing the digital event, just in japan
RIP Nintendo 2016 /100% :-(
I second that
you second what? Bullshit?
everyone here is fucking scum, the poor man is ill and instead of being fucking considerate, you still continue with your shit, im so fucking proud of you all
I applaud you good sir, I’m so tired of everyone woshong death upon him… its disgusting
According to his PR, he’s not exactly dying, so we don’t have to overly wish a speedy recovery. That’s another way of being insincere with your wishes.
he must have had almost a seizure when he heard the xbox one will have a price cut in june. good bye iwata.
If anyone even gets a seizure, it would be because of your outstanding stupidity…
Or the from the Xbox’s Kinect! xD We already know it can be dangerous to a person’s health. Xboom!
Just look at the weirdos playing American Football in one of the Xbot Conferences…
Because they sell it without kinnect, do u remember kinnect? Yeah the gimmick that was supposed to be the heart of the whole shitbox1 experience!! Lol @ you sasorry, pathetic xbutt troll!!
Believe me. Whem they all get sick or lose themselves or someone in an accident over this, once I hear about it, I’ll slowly clap and laugh inside and out.
Playeressence is better than this site. People are far more mature there.
If Iwata wants to tell something @ E3 he will just instruct the treehouse guys to give him some air time, problem solved!
But I still hope he will get better soon…
I hope he gets better soon! Nothing serious i hope!!! :-(
Seriously, the trolls here are disgusting, it’s not even funny, he’s ill, he’s just a human being and if he was someone from your family you would be worried, but not, he’s Iwata and since your job is to come to troll Nintendo here for you daily laughs, you asshole and immature pathetic kids make fun of his illness.
Well, I’m not an asshole nor a loser internet troll with no life, so I wish him well, and hope Nintendo amazes us at E3 ’cause there’s no reason to hate Nintendo other than be an internet bully to try to make Nintendo fans mad so you can pass your time since you don’t have actual friends or things to do in your real life!
I wonder how they feel now that he’s actually dead. They literally killed him with their banter.
Poor guy, i hope he gets better soon.
nooo =( I wish him well, please get better Iwata D=
Some of you people are awful, he’s not entirely to blame for the current state of nintendo and even then he doesn’t deserve to die
Miyamoto developed heart problems back when the Gamecube was failing catastrophically. Probably the same for Iwata and the Wii U.
Well let’s just hope the success of MK8 helped and let’s just hope upcoming wii u games do well
Said no one ever
But seriously, I hope he recovers soon since he’s the only boss Nintendo has left other than Reggie and whoever represents Nintendo UK.
Hopefully it’s not that fucking cancer. Get well soon Iwata
My Lord Iwata, your fellow warriors shall defend our empire in your place…
And to all the haters and idiots in here…
I hope you all die a horrible painful death tomorrow that even a sadistic lunatic would envy…
Hoping for a sick Lord to die is just disgusting…
Now just die and I hope you get tortured for hours first…
Dude, wishing death on them doesn’t make you any better than they are.
I’m always better than they are so I don’t need this human preaching…
This kind of attitude actually makes you potentially worse than them.
At least they probably know they’re being pricks, you seem to feel justified in sending death threats.
Go bother someone else…
If you think I’m being all so serious all the time, then I guess you think actors really are the characters they play…
And it’s disgusting to see anyone, even by joking that they should die…
So they deserve to die themselves for uttering such idiotic statements about a man who never did anything to anybody…
But in this case, these fuckers asked for it and they shall receive and I damn hope it’s gonna be painfully physically, emotionally and mentally and then eliminated from life.
You seriously need to stop. You are giving Nintendo fans a bad name.
Always attacking me and never the haters and trolls right?…
They always go after the leader first. “Like in movies when aliens say take me to your leader”. So they come directly after YOU. Sorry, Commander. We’re here to help you though… XD
Everyone who hates me cannot live without me…
I am the peak of their pathetic boring lives…
Anyway, get ready next week to have your life owned in Mario Kart…
“Everyone who hates me cannot live without me”
You know that might very well be true, just think how boring these trolls and all would have if they werent communicating with you on here. They might as well not exist.
Do you have any suggestion for games I can get on the Wii U evntually?…
That are not Electron or Ubisoftian…
I haven’t played it but I suggest Wonderful 101. It’d be a nice way to get yourself ready for Bayonetta 2.
Too bad Bayonetta 2 comes out hopefully I have some money to buy it…
When I’m back to classes that is…
I noticed that these weird anons just appear out nowhere to insult you all the time and always seem to fail.
You attack a reasonable person when there are those who are wishing death upon others in the comment who are doing worse than what you claim he is doing?
Don’t start that double agent BS.
This post made me cringe hard.
I wish the poor man well. He takes a lot of shit from annual losses to fans who want something different from what he thinks is best for Nintendo. He could use a rest.
As for “he will not be making the trip to Los Angeles. Please understand that it is business as usual for Mr. Iwata, and he continues his normal duties as president of Nintendo Co., Ltd.”, I’m a bit confused. Does this mean he’ll be hosting the Direct without going to Los Angeles?
Isn’t that what he did last year? I thought the advantage of Direct was that they could communicate without the need to travel.
Wow. Thanks guys. Everyone’s put a crapload of hate on him and now he has health problems and some are even happy about it. That’s disgusting.
yeah, I don’t know what’s the problem of people wishing others to die D= lamentable..
Don’t push yourself, Iwata!
Please be well mister Iwata
Let’s hope it isn’t anything too serious.
I really hope a iwata gets well soon. He’s probably worked very very hard lately. Here’s to a get well soon Iwata-San! I am sure your colleagues will be ok. You just concentrate on your health! :)
Can the owner(s) of this website even attempt a small amount of moderation here? Freedom of speech does not protect hate speech. Please try…unless you just enjoy the hate/vitriol for the clicks it produces…but then I suppose you’d be no better than those who are making these terrible statements.
How about forcing a Facebook login for comments? This would silent a lot of these people…
Sadly, freedom of speech does protect hate speech in the United States. We got white supremacists, neo-nazis, religious extremists like those worthless scum at Westboro Baptist Church, and other scum running their mouths off with their filthy hate. Luckily, there are some places where it will not be allowed, though, even if freedom of speech does allow them to spout off.
You guys who wish the death on Satoru Iwata, that is not right for you to wishing that he dies. I wish that he got better quickly.
Poor Iwata must be under an immense amount of stress.
Iwata is the reason why Hiroshi Yamuachi died you freaking peasants
Poor old man couldn’t stand watching Iwata ruin the family company
Eff u fanboys
Yamauchi hand picked Iwata. So if anything, Yamauchi died happy and fulfilled as the richest man in Japan. And Iwata had built a $20bn cash reserves for the family business.
Can you little boys stop crying of that bitches illness. It’s like you want him to inject his cancer through his dick into your asses…
Wow. Do you realize how dumb and immature you sound?
This is unfortunate. Get well soon, Mr. Iwata. All the best wishes.
lol soo he’s ill and you corperate salves and drones are defending this guy. lol he should quit his job and work at a gym company to sell all these wii gimmicks over there and make crap ton of money from causals. why is he even still at nintendo, glad i wont be spending money on the future for nintendo games. they dont desever a dime from me or my pockets. i can’t wait for him to be fired or step down.
You don’t even have a dime so why are you even talking nonsense?…
And you defend Mircosoft when you don’t even have any Xboxes, then you go ahead and defend the gimmick kinect, then you go on to say you will not spend money on nintendo products when its not even your money and you still can’t a afford an Xbomb. Exposed again. You are just making this too easy.
He never even made it hard to begin with…
Like the Electron Army, he will be nominated for the Golden Poo Award…
Then the ED ceremony will come and he will be placed in The Hall of Lolcows.
Indeed, I hope the day soon arrives…
I will be laughing if he gets his picture next to the Mistake of God, Chris Chan.
He is already a mistake by his parents…
Indeed. Maybe he should smack himself with an eradication cannon instead of TF2 wrench now that I think about it.
Or just keep making videos exposing himself even further until the word exposing lost all its meaning…
If that’ll even happen since he makes it so entertaining to watch him expose himself, besides its not like these humans will have any pity for him since the fool already degraded all his humanity to only replace it in exchange for an Xbot inferiority complex.
And I bet that he will be so contradictory that he will probably be the first one in line to get all the masterpieces that will be shown at E3 by High Command…
Someone should be there to record the ape being there, ultimate exposure ensured.
Anyway my fellow ally, I’m off to recharge my energy…
Did you have a Wii U? If you do, then we must add eachother next week…
I do have one, so no need to worry.
And dont forget his hypocrisy of hating such games like MK8 but turns around and says he’ll buy when its cheaper but when MK8 was selling for 50 instead of 60 that he’s complaining about, he’s still bitching.
This ape is mentally retarded. This is one of those special cases that motherfuckers just chose to ditch their humanity and mentality for god knows what just to look pretty for other rejected fags like himself.
*facepalm* Well least you aren’t talking like Donko & Nostalgia_w, so I’ll give you that. Maybe there is some hope for you after all. xD But for now, you’re still a loser, just less of a loser compared to the other two trolls.
Sigh, bloody sociopaths who would actually wish death on anybody…
Get well soon, Iwata. You’re awesome. Ruin their day.
It’s probably nothing serious.
If it was, he would have needed to take a break from the office as well.
Dam that’s not good I hope he recovers and he’s all right
Maybe he just got serious jet lag last time at E3 and he doesn’t want it to happen again.
Get well soon, Iwata.

hope to see iwata back on his feet again.
Just wanna say a few things:
1. As much as I disapprove oe of his business choices, he’s entirely not a bad person and still has that proper responsibility in him so I wish for his best of health.
2. This post..man I have never witnessed such collection of mentally fucked black hearted morons in my whole life wishing for a decent person to die only because some one little fucking black game console box that didn’t want to go like Sony making it as powerful and similar as PS4 offering no originality and quality. Seriously, you trash excuses for living beings deserve the most unimaginable fates to happen, somwthing even worst than death that’ll make you wish it was you to die first instead.
And 3. I’m back motherfuckers.
