Reggie Fils-Aime's Touching Tribute to Nintendo's Late Satoru Iwata


This week's The Game Awards Show was quite the star-studded spectacle, but none of us were expecting to be punched in the heart by the President of Nintendo of America.

We were all deeply saddened by the passing of legendary Nintendo figurehead Satoru Iwata this past July (and honestly a little confused with the company's lack of a fitting tribute), but maybe it's taken this long to find the right words to say.  

This past week at The Game Awards Show NoA President Reggie Fils-Aime did just that, with a heart-wrenching speech about knowledge, vision and friendship.


Mr Iwata passed away this July after a prolonged ilness, and the gaming world still mourns the loss of one of its only true legends.

RIP Iwata-san.
