Hours later, and it still saddens me...always sad when such a nice person passes. He'll be remembered. I might go back to my Earthbound replay soon in his memory.

I am starting to believe that most Japanese die from cancer. At least all the famous that have died and I know them. Could be just me but that's how I see it and that's making me think that they are more susceptible to cancers, could it be the food? or it could be just a coincidence.

No way, this is so sudden. :(
Wasn't preparing myself for a sad news like this.

@Seiya, Well there was that Fukushima incident but if you ask me I'd say one of the major cause is stress.
For people who are interested here's a great read. It's a conversation between Iwata and Itoi.

...I'm going to miss seeing him in future Nintendo Directs.

No prob, I was glad I found it myself. The dialogue was interesting and quite inspirational too, especially the idea and management part. The IT mananger bit was my fave.
