Nintendo President Satoru Iwata Dead at 55

Nintendo has confirmed, in a brief but to-the-point statement, that company president Satoru Iwata has died of bile duct growth at only 55. As of right now, very little else is know about the circumstances, but it goes without saying that our hearts go out to Iwata’s family.

Iwata was a director within the company since 2000. He will be remembered fondly.

Nick Izumi is, for all intents and purposes, a human being. We’ve checked repeatedly, and he continues to assure us this is true. Nick is the cofounder and former staffer of the Wisconsin Anime Convention “Daisho Con,” and occasionally smells like flour and memories of your forgotten youth. He also created and stars in a series of reviews on YouTube called "The Nick Izumi Show." You should watch it.
