Episode 174 – R.I.P. Satoru Iwata

On July 11th, 2015, we lost a very special man in the gaming world. We lost Nintendo President and CEO, Mr. Satoru Iwata to a bile duct growth. Satoru Iwata is responsible for producing many amazing games, whether it be from the Mario series, Zelda series, Kirby, Animal Crossing, Metroid, and many more we’ve come to know and love. The Lost Levels offer their condolences to Mr. Iwata’s family, friends/coworkers at Nintendo, and to all the likewise fans out there who adored the man. Whether he was creating video games, or entertaining us with the Nintendo Directs; one thing’s for sure is Mr. Iwata has entertained us for many years; and we will celebrate his legacy for years to come. R.I.P. Iwata (1959-2015), we lost you way too young. Dark Boo hosts today and is joined by Sol, SpiderStaryu, and guest DeadlyxImpulse!

    Nintendo’s Future can be Worrying. I wish luck for the next president. In these games to come over the Next Few Years, there may be some Tributes to Iwata put into place. I myself have an Uncle born the Same Year as Iwata (his birthday’s the same day as Andre Segers’). Sorry to keep saying this, but I’m definitely going to miss that trademark DIRECTLY pose of his. He really made our childhood, tried his best to keep us satisfied.
