Nintendo of Europe: 'He was a visionary in every sense of the word and we will miss him dearly'

Nintendo says goodbye

Nintendo of Europe President Satoru Shibata has given a formal statement following the recent death of global president, Satoru Iwata.

Nintendo of Europe is today mourning the passing of Mr Satoru Iwata, Nintendo's Global President.

It is difficult to put into words the sadness we feel at this time. Mr. Iwata was a strong leader, a unique figure in the gaming industry and an important part of Nintendo's history. He was a visionary in every sense of the word and we will miss him dearly.

Just as Mr. Iwata challenged us to always push forward, we will ensure his legacy lives on through our ongoing work to always surprise and delight our fans. At this time our thoughts are with his family.

As you'd probably expect, there's no news yet on who might succeed Iwata. Until a new president is appointed, it seems as though Miyamoto and Takeda will share the responsibility.
