This was a man that did a lot for Nintendo and was one of the driving force for many of our video game experiences. You are part of a legacy Iwata, now it is time for you to rest.
Yea heard a little while ago, he was still really young. He was definitely a programming giant, and will be severely missed by the community he played such a big role in. My condolences go out to his family. I hope they can take solace in the fact that he played a huge role in making many people's childhood's great.
