It apparently happened on Saturday (Japan time). Nintendo hasn't made a formal public announcement, but a release has been put out in both Japanese and English on the business side.

RIP. A controversial President but definitely had a big impact on the industry as we know it.

It's a sad day. It will be interesting to see what a change in leadership does for Nintendo.

R.I.P Satoru Iwata

Satoru Iwata passed away at the age of 55. He was the president and CEO of Nintendo. He was one hell of a game programmer too.

All of the Nintendo fans had developed a close relationship with him as he was doing most of the Nintendo direct :(

I'll miss him, he was an emblematic figure of this company.... R.I.P
