It has been over two years now since Satoru Iwata, Nintendo’s 4th President and CEO, passed away due to complications from a bile duct tumor. Today would’ve been his 58th birthday. He was born on December 6th, 1959. Although Iwata is no longer with us, his legacy has not been forgotten. Nintendo has paid tribute to him in games such as Star Fox Zero, Breath Of The Wild and Pokemon Ultra Sun & Moon. Sadly, Iwata never got to see the release of the Switch, a console he had been the head developer of during the final months of his life. He had passed away when the console was still known as the NX and over a year before Nintendo showed off the Switch to the world. Nevertheless, his spirit lives on in the many games he has worked on, the consoles he developed and the developers and fans he has inspired. Happy birthday, Mr. Iwata.
