A nice tribute. Thank you. I had no idea how influential Mr. Iwata was.
I've never been a big fan of Nintendo, but that made my eyes water. He seemed like truly a great guy, and I'm now understanding the impact of his passing.
Is there any place on the site where we can see which source (images and audio) material is used for these videos?
Very moving. Ta.
I have to admit I never saw it like that for nintendo, Satoru Iwata is a true gamer heart and soul.
Whoever succeeds him needs to remember his ideals and what he stood for to run nintendo, but also willing to adapt to the current market. If they can do this nintendo could be unstoppable, once again.
This video is great. Very well done.
A wonderful tribute. Thank you Danny and Team. Always looking forward to the next episode.
Thanks Danny and crew. I had a tear at the end of the video.
Well done tribute... very moving. Thanks, Danny & Team!
so upsetting Satoru Iwata was a gaming developing legend and his legacy will live on forever
Excellent episode Danny. A very poignant tribute to an exceptional voice in the gaming industry.
Risk is essential.
Looks like they're gonna need a new president for Nintendo.
That was the best episode of the point that I have seen. Thank you Danny. Well done.
To Mr. Iwata... I hope you are at peace and with God.
beautiful vid. definitely felt some tears coming on. I remember I was at work, doing security in an empty building, and i was playing Xenogears on my Vita when the news hit. I sat in silence for a good half an hour, no joke. then I grabbed my New 3DS and played some Smash Bros, and I started to feel a lot better. it's amazing that Smash Bros emerged in such an organic, joyful way, and was developed for the gamers and not for shareholders to gawk at potential sales.
say what you will about the risks he took Nintendo through, but if he hadn't, we would probably have gone through another crash by now. I still say the Wii is highly underrated as a "gamer" console.
we want the top comments back please!
Every tribute to this man seems to have the same message. Which is "what we loved about Saturo Iwata is that he took big risks and did crazy things that had a profound effect on the gaming industry." I guess that's also a not-so-subtle hint at Nintendo to please keep taking big risks.
What a class act. Sad to see him gone.
And thank you Danny for taking the time to give us this tribute. Hats off to you sir, and to the late Iwata San.
That speech at the end...
Wish I could have met him.
Outstanding way to remember such an incredible gamer and human being, thank you Mr.O'Dwyer
I thought the story was that HAL was 1 letter before IBM?
Ef this world.
What really hurts me is that it seems he was far from finished. He was a great man with so many more great things to accomplish. Life is so unbelievably cruel :(
I admit, I have given Iwata his fair share of crap especially for the Wii and Wii U, but I will ultimately respect his devotion to gaming and its progression. Thank you for everything you've done, Iwata-san. RIP
Very fitting tribute, to one of the industry's most devoted gamers. Thank you.
@k1ckasser I belive this is a misunderstanding, just because I replied another comment someone erased about unnessesary subjects. I cannot understand why people need to be like that, but the anonimity of the internet just grew people like that.I respect every man who made something, from curing diseases to entretain with all his will while being a great person, just because they really wanted to. Accomplishing your objectives is what every human being deservs and needs, and yet is so difficult...RIP Iwata-San
@Nch--: apologies, i deleted the comment i made after realising it was in reply to you and not the other person who was being completely rude to everyone and the tribute. My error, have a good one.
@k1ckasser: Then have a good one too :) Keep foward
Great tribute Danny!
Thank you, Danny, for this video! Not only is this tribute very heart-felt and touching, it's message is very clear. Of all the tributes I've seen, this one is the best one.Everyone who is involved with gaming should see this remarkable video.
The Nintendo legacy continues. Thank you for everything, Mr. Iwata. We'll miss you.
Fantastic video doc on Iwata. I didn't realise how many of his games I had played or how many consoles of his I've enjoyed over the years. What an incredible down to earth guy who I hope is an inspiration to current and future game makers.

feels train incoming
Fantastic tribute. Been watching Satoru Iwata videos all week myself and even opted to finally grab a Wii U. Played 2p Mario 3D World straight through to World 8 in one sitting over pizza and beer. Most I've smiled and laughed playing a game in a long time.
Nintendo had better take advantage of all the free publicity it's getting and all the sentiment surging around this tragic event to promote the WiiU and get more 3rd party developers for the system.
@Isamu_36: Dude, thats just sick, you don't say "Hey our President and good friend has died, please buy our system." That's just stupid. Now go away.
That honestly brought a tear to my eye. I hope Nintendo always remembers the lessons Mr. Iwata taught, fun is the most important part of games.
standing applause to Danny, and salute to Satoru Iwata.
This video is highly appreciated.
A very fitting tribute, Danny. I know Mr. Iwata would be delighted to see how perfectly you summed up his personal philosophy, and to know that we do understand.
Amazing video Danny,once more. Make sure you continue to make them. I almost cryed,damit.
Danny, nice mini biography of Satoru Iwata's work and goals. Even if some people do not agree with the direction Nintendo was going, Mr. Iwata's ultimate goals were the correct ones. I too hope developers will remember and learn from what Mr. Iwata was trying to accomplish. I liked what Mr. Iwata said, "Even if we come from different sides of the world, speak different languages, even if we eat too many chips or rice balls, even if we have different tastes in games, every one of us here today is identical in the most important way: each one of us has the heart of a gamer."
