I've seen people say that Miyamoto is a likely candidate to take over, but I don't think so. He might have the same amount of recognisability as Iwata (perhaps even more) but I think it's been clear for a while now that he's getting close to retirement and isn't really up for doing the important stuff. I don't know enough about anyone else at Nintendo in Japan to take a stab who will be the president instead though. They could always get one of these.

Nobody knows this game, but it was the essence of my childhood. It was the first video game I ever owned. It is the reason I am into Pokémon and, by extension, here today to post this. It was my favorite game for many long years and still probably holds the title for most-often-replayed game in my collection.

Nobody knows this game and it is one of the best adventure games I've ever played. It's based off the anime/manga Hamtaro - which nobody knows - so you'd expect it to suck, right?... If it were more well known, it would easily be a classic in the world of handheld adventure games that even hardcore game fans say is excellent.

Nobody knows this game and Iwata was the executive producer.

He was a genius programmer who will be missed; he's the guy who's basically responsible for compressing Gold and Silver to have Kanto, as a pleasant surprise to fans. Also, Melee's engine was riddled with tons and tons of bugs, to the point where they might have had to scrap it entirely. He and a few others fixed the whole thing in three weeks. And he saved Earthbound from being thrown away too. It's always sad when such an inspiration dies before he should.

I still can't completely get over this... I've been a huge Nintendo fan for years and Iwata has been a huge inspiration for me.

Let's not forget that he cut his own salary in half just so he wouldn't have to fire anyone some years back... He truly was a great president and CEO.

You will be missed... R.I.P

I feel kinda bad that I never realised until now what a great man Iwata was. He's always just been kind of a name and a face to me, and I vaguely knew something about some Nintendo exec or another taking a voluntary paycut rather than lay off staff, but I never knew how much of a hand he had in a fair few games that are very dear to me or how passionate he was about just trying to make fun games.

RIP in peaches, Iwata-san, and thanks for everything.
