Late Nintendo president Satoru Iwata will receive this year’s Lifetime Achievement award at the 2016 DICE Awards. Satoru Iwata is a legend in the videogaming industry, and greatly helped shape games and their impact during the prime Nintendo days.

The ceremony will be held in Las Vegas on February 18, and will see the accolade award posthumously for the first time ever.

The award is reserved only for rare occasions, and was previously given to Father of PlayStation Ken Kutaragi and early Nintendo of America chiefs Minoru Arakawa and Howard Lincoln.

Despite being awarded at the DICE Awards event, it is a separate recognition to the DICE’s annual Hall of Fame entrant, which this year has been chosen as the well-known Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima, as announced just over a week ago.

Satoru Iwata served as Nintendo’s president during its most successful period, which saw successful platforms like the DS, Wii, and 3DS come to life.

The president passed away in July following treatment of cancer. He was rumored to have been working closely on Nintendo’s new and upcoming console, the Nintendo NX, and his legacy will continue with its release. The company is expected to officially unveil the NX at the E3 during June this year.
