Developers Choice Awards crafted a loving tribute to Iwata

At GDC

Grab your tissues, folks.

The Developers Choice Awards were held last night, and during the event, a special tribute to Satoru Iwata was shown, who sadly passed away last July. It’s three minutes long, and spans some of his accomplishments, and provides a few nods to his projects, as well as his legacy.

It’s a touching tribute that really shows what Iwata left behind, and reminds us of his famous quote — “In my heart, I’m a gamer.” He truly was one of a kind.
