Even though he has been ill for some time, 55 is just too young to be passing away.

When I first heard about this I went into shock...  I'm still having a bit of trouble believing it, honestly. I wish his family and his company good luck in the future...

I thought it was a troll when I first saw it... Rest in Peace

I'm astounded; shocked.

His last game (Mario Maker) is to make our dreams come true, just like he did for us all those years.

Iwata was a great man. May his soul rest in peace. #ThanksIwata for everything you did for us. I have condolences for Iwata's family and Nintendo. It will take time to heal the void that was left in the world. Rest in peace, Mr. Iwata.

A guy who does stuff. Pretty accurate description, eh?

R.I.P. He will be greatly missed. Thanks for helping to create games that shaped my childhood.

When I first read that I thought it was another death hoax, but when I found out he was really dead I was shocked, R.I.P  Iwata

I'm very sad to hear that he passed, and I wish the best for his family and loved ones.

 

That said, I'm very curious to know how Nintendo as a company will change because of his departure. Depending on who gets put in charge in his place, we could see some major policy and/or product changes.

He did a lot. IIRC:
He singlehandedly programmed Earthbound.
Compressed Pokemon GoldSilver to the point the team could fit Kanto.
Debugged SSBM entirely in a week.

He is sorely missed.

He has done amazing things for the gaming community and has passed too soon.


What the fuck did you just fucking say about me, you little bitch? I’ll have you know I graduated top of my class in the Firepowered Seeders, and I’ve been involved in numerous secret seed events on dustbowl, and I have over 300 confirmed seed tokens. I am trained in demoknighting and I’m the top seeder in the entire FP Community. You are nothing to me but just another source of seed tokens. I will snatch your seed tokens with precision the likes of which has never been seen before on this Earth, mark my fucking words. You think you can get away with saying that shit to me over the Internet? Think again, seeder. As we speak I am contacting my secret network of seeders across the Internet and your IP is being traced right now so you better prepare for the seed event, maggot. The storm that seeds all of your servers to full capacity. You’re fucking seeded, kid. I can seed anywhere, anytime, and I can seed servers in over seven hundred ways, and that’s just with my holiday punch heavy loadout. Not only am I extensively trained in rocket jumping, but I have access to the entire members list of FP and I will use it to its full extent to seed your miserable servers off the face of the internet, you little shit. If only you could have known what unholy seed your little “clever” comment was about to bring down upon you, maybe you would have held your fucking tongue. But you couldn’t, you didn’t, and now you’re paying the price, you goddamn idiot. I will seed fury all over you and you will drown in my seed. You’re fucking seeded, kiddo.
