Satoru Iwata.

Nintendo President Satoru Iwata has passed away this Monday July the 11th, aged just 55.
While wholly unexpected, the cause of Mr. Iwata’s passing has been attributed to an on going battle with a tumor of the bile duct which, despite undergoing surgery, the former HAL Laboratory’s developer simply couldn’t overcome

Disheartening as Satoru Iwata’s passing has been for both the game’s industry and gamers, a degree of solace has been taken in the fact that the day after the Nintendo President’s death, a rainbow was filmed over the company’s Kyoto headquarters which has been dubbed “Iwata’s Rainbow Road to heaven.”
