    1. They are probably keeping it secret to avoid large crowds and allow the family and colleagues to grieve.

      1. You’re asking if they’ll have a livestream of the CEO’s funeral… Are you out of your mind?

        1. That was a pretty stupid question. Or Chris is trying to troll. If the latter, I wish I could smack him on the back of the head.

        1. Hay Anonymous so i talked too Mr.Ho from Miiverse and he said he thinks your bad for him but whatever hes so funny mr.ho sometimes he acts like a little kid but his Grammar is so bad.

      2. Of course dude, it’s going to be in the ficking Nintendo durect, you insensitive prick.

  1. I hopr you get kidnapped by a foreign company and have each of your body parts sold. Fuck off clown. Ninty did questionable shit…but no one ever in there right mind wanted these people to day. Act like a damn human

  2. R.I.P Iwata. Lets hope it doesn’t happen to daddy sakurai too. He has a disease or sickness too :(

      1. your yelling at the best bully right because hes the one that wants our friend reggie to die i can tell sickr if you want me too.

  3. I went to a funeral myself this year. Funerals suck. And it doesn’t really get any better afterwards but you still gotta do it. You’ll have to live on any way. Nantoka naruyo.

    1. Hi Anonymous i remember you from Miiverse hows it going have not seen you in days your so cool man.

  4. Rest in peace. You’re legacy will be remembered in the hearts and minds of all gamers alike.

  5. Go to fucking hell! Your sick to have said something like that its filth like you that make this world a worse place. Admin please remove his comment nobody needs to see it…

  6. Will Bill Trinen, be there? Because that’s the first day of EVO and the site said Bill would be entering. Is it just going to be his Japanese colleagues and family attending? It’s also the first day of Splatfest. Man, the 17th is going to be a big day.

  7. Peter Beadle i told sickr and hoply he will delete the best bully’s comments about Reggie dies.

  8. Just reading these sad posts is a constant low blow. It hurts so much. He left this world FAR too soon. Just think of how many more amazing things he still could have accomplished if he had lived into his 80’s and beyond (although he probably would have been retired by then). I hope Shigeru Miyamoto has a much longer life than Iwata did. If he died too, I don’t think I could handle it. No disrespect to the mighty Iwata. I loved that man! R.I.P. Iwata.

  9. is it just me or does this feel like Walt Disney he was a visionary and had characters like mario and others but in 1955 he opened the Walt DisneyLand Theme Park In Aneheim California and died Later but he only spend a year or less to know the park and what it will have become in the future just like mr iwata he had a vision to build a place to hangout with your fav characters and injoy the wonderfull worlds of his creation and the diffrents are Walt Disney had the luck to see his park and then passed away and mr iwata planned every thing but just didnt get the luck to see the glory of the nintendo universal studios area. “NintendoLand is for jong and old NintendoLand is your land to injoy the valley of hyrule the mushroom kingdom the jungle japes of donkey kong and the race ways of mario kart” rest in peace 岩田 聡

  10. It hurts to read articles about Iwata’s death. The more I see news about it, the sadder I get.
