MariChan from Nintendo has taken to Miiverse to thank the fans for all their lovely messages to former Nintendo president Satoru Iwata. The team at Nintendo wanted to do something fun and special to commemorate Satoru Iwata so they have decided to announce a community driven Splatoon drawing event. We should get more details on the Art Academy Events community page at the end of the month, so stay tuned.
Hello everyone! MariChan here. Thank you so much for your outpouring of messages about Mr Iwata. Miiverse and everyone on it held a very special place in his heart, so I know he’d be very happy. Mr Iwata’s passing was an extremely painful time for all of us, but I feel like it’s our duty to carry on making Miiverse a fun and awesome place so we can keep his spirit alive! To that end, we’re planning a Splatoon drawing event. Look forward to more details in an announcement on the Art Academy Events community page on 31 July!
