Nintendo has announced that Nintendo president and CEO Satoru Iwata passed away at age 55 on July 11 from cancer. The cause of death was a bile duct growth. It’s one of the saddest days in the video games industry. A day everyone will remember if you’ve played a Mario game or your childhood was filled Zelda or Donkey Kong. Mr Iwata underwent surgery last year and returned to Nintendo after a brief time of recovery.
