Saturu Iwata Honored at GDC 2016

At this week’s Game Devleopers Conference in San Francisco, a short animated film was presented which honors the extensive and incredible impact that the late Nintendo president Satoru Iwata had on the world of gaming.

The film was created by Shawne Benson, David Hellman, Chris Kohler, and Raber Umphenour. We’ll link to the piece below, but you may want to grab a few tissues before clicking through. You’ll see Iwata in the early stages of his career at HAL before he moved onto Nintendo, giving us some of the most memorable and innovative products in gaming history in the Wii and DS consoles.

Please enjoy this tribute to a man who touched so many lives during his time here on earth.
