Just goes to show the impact Satoru Iwata had on the gaming industry when the entire industry is mourning his passing. Of course, this is just a small selection of tweets posted by industry officials and official accounts across the gaming industry, but this should give an idea of just how influential Satoru Iwata was during his lifetime.

 

May he rest well.

Gotta say, I really hope that Miyamoto doesn't just drop dead out of nowhere like this.

 

Farewell, Iwata-san. ;(

I believe Miyamoto said he's going to retire in a few years. Don't know when he means, but damn. I've already lost three of my childhood icons, and Miyamoto looks like he's next... although, for different reasons than Gunpei Yokoi, Hiroshi Yamauchi and Satoru Iwata.

 

The world lost a very talented programmer and skilled businessman on the 11th. The impacts his loss will have on Nintendo are probably enormous.
