Today is a sad day for gamers all around the world, Nintendo’s president Satoru Iwata is no longer among us. The news has stunned the industry and I still find it hard to believe that Iwata has passed away.

Iwata is the man behind countless unforgettable gaming experiences we had, and we have nothing but great respect for him.

Many notable names from our industry have paid homage to the man and shared their love for all things Nintendo. Below you can see a selection of tweets by Shuhei Yoshida, Phil Spencer and more, sharing their sadness, condolences to Iwata’s family, friends and fans.

“He has given a great contribution to the development of the gaming industry. I will pray for Iwata’s soul.”
