President of Nintendo Satoru Iwata Passes at the Age of 55

By The Hundreds Staff

The honorable Satoru Iwata, president of gaming legend Nintendo, passed this weekend due to complications from a bile duct tumor. The champion who led the aging company towards the future with the Nintendo Wii and Nintendo DS is known as the man who made Nintendo survive the financial troubles that other Japanese developers like SEGA were unable to maneuver around. Being one of the programmers who worked on what became the Pokemon and Kirby series, his place in the video game industry was profound. He was 55.
