Satoru Iwata died almost a month ago, and while we tried to talk about it on some occasions, I’ve never been quite happy with the way we did. I didn’t grow up with a Nintendo. My first Nintendo home console was actually the Wii. I knew him and his work mostly from those lovely Nintendo Direct conferences, but those never painted the whole picture, especially his roots and motivations.
Thanks to George Weidman from Super Bunnyhop however, I do have a clearer picture of Mr. Iwata now. So if you are in a similar situation as I was, sit back, relax and enjoy this video. We probably couldn’t have done a better tribute to a man that deserved so much more success than he recently had.
