After the sad passing of Satoru Iwata, many games companies, studios and developers have paid their respect to Nintendo’s president.

Iwata passed away on July 11 due to a bile duct growth, a health issue he has struggled with in the past.

The much-loved industry exec was respected not only for the way he steered a clear and determined path for Nintendo’s unique take on the games business, but also his willingness to embrace the fun and playfulness of video games.
