Satoru Iwata dies of bile duct cancer.

"Nintendo Co., Ltd. deeply regrets to announce that President Satoru Iwata passed away on July 11, 2015 due to a bile duct growth."

;_; Oof... with me being a Nintendo fan, this really hurts. This guy left a legacy for not just Nintendo, but also gaming as a whole. May his soul rest in peace. I miss him already. Nintendo just won't be the same without him anymore. Rest in Peace you great man. I hope you're in a better place, free of pain and suffering.
Heheh, you said a bad word.

All of you guys really are special. Did you guys know that? Yes you guys are! Each in your own special way.

This really is a shame. I thought it was a joke at first, but wow. Died at 55 years old, it seems like it came out of no where. Really sad though that it had to be after the really bad reception this years Nintendo Direct conference received. Rest in peace, Iwata, you left behind a great legacy.

Fitting thread music, I've been listening to this for like the past half hour over in the /v/ thread:
It slep time bunner.
