This is completely out of nowhere. I mean, I knew the man was sick but I thought his health was improving. Sad to see such an industry legend pass on too soon.

RIP.

This is terrible for a lot of reasons. He pulled Nintendo through a pretty rough time and, based on investor meetings, it seems he's almost been preventing Nintendo from going 3rd party or focusing on mobile all on his own. I'm worried for Nintendo right now. As for the man himself, he always seemed like a fun guy and loved games. It's really sad to see him go.
