Need a good cry? Check out Did You Know Gaming's extended Satoru Iwata video


What is this liquid pouring out of my eyeballs?

It's weird to think it's only been a little more than 15 months since Satoru Iwata died. With how quickly news comes and goes in this modern age, it feels like it was years ago. But it wasn't. It was July 11, 2015. I still remember the story we published here at Destructoid and the lovely and beautiful comments you, the readers, posted in it.

I was always fascinated by Iwata during his tenure as the president of Nintendo, and in his passing, was captivated by all the different stories about his earlier years and how his programming expertise saved several of the games we know and love.

He truly was one-of-a-kind, and if you still don't know the legend of Satoru Iwata, set aside 20 minutes for this touching video on his life from the Did You Know Gaming crew.
