From what I understand he also had a huge part in making Kirby into a series, saved Earthbound from coding problems that might've otherwise killed it, and debugged a ton of Melee glitches so that it could release on time. I know he did a lot more but these are all I can recall right off the top of my head.

This is quite honestly the first time I've had tears in my eyes at anyone's passing since my grandmother died 8 years ago.

Shigesato Itoi (father of Mother and buddy of Iwata) has this to say (though he probably said it in Japanese):

Shigesato Itoi wrote:
When I'm parting with a friend, regardless of the circumstances, I find it best to just say, "See you later". We'll meet again. After all, we're friends. That's right - nothing unusual about it. I'll see you later.

You went on a trip far, far away, even though it was planned for many years from now. You wore your best outfit and said, "Sorry for the short notice," though you didn't say it out loud.

You always put yourself last, after you'd finished helping everyone else. You were so generous as a friend that this trip might be your very first selfish act.

I still can't grasp what's happened. It feels like I could still get a light-hearted e-mail asking me out to lunch at any moment - after you've made sure lunch wouldn't disrupt my schedule, of course. You can invite me out whenever you want. I'll invite you, too.

So for now, let's plan on meeting again. You can call me up whenever you like, and I'll give you a call, too. I still have a lot to talk to you about, and if I come up with any particularly good ideas, I'll let you know.

So let's meet again.

No - I suppose we're already meeting.

Right here, right now.

This is really sad news, I just heard about this when I woke up. I wasn't expecting this to happen at all.

RIP Satoru Iwata.

This is kinda boggling though.
Wasn't he just recently doing a live broadcast, and seemed perfectly healthy?
I guess this just comes to show though, it may happen when you least expect it.

That was a beautiful thing to say of Mr. Itoi. Truly fantastic, as his works often are.
On my end, while I don't think I can say anything quite as articulate as Mr. Itoi has, I personally think this is a moment better suited to commemorating and celebrating all the things Mr. Iwata has done to the gaming world, than to be overwhelmed by grief. All his life, he has made it a mission to make unforgettable works for us to enjoy, and I think it defeats his purpose somewhat to mope.
For that reason, I've created a remix of a song from a game he was highly involved in.

Well... Thank you. Mr. Iwata. Your games will survive you, and so will your legacy.

At E3 they did the puppet thing because Iwata didn't want everyone to see him sick and dying.

God, that came out of nowhere. Literally.
I came here to mourn the loss of Iwata.
May he rest in peace. *salutes*
One minute of silence for Iwata. :(

It's called a road, it's called a rainbow road. It is a road that you go. It's a road that you go, when you die

He was a little young. 55 years old, right?
What did he die of?

If it hadn't been for Mr. Iwata, I would've never been on the up and up on upcoming Nintendo Games.
R.I.P Mr.Iwata. :(

Iwata was a gamer, a programming wizard and seemingly a rather nice fellow.

I'm going to miss him bringing the news directly to me.

This is a very sad news to see when I logged in... Iwata was a good guy with a great sense of humor, most of all... puts a smile on everyone's face to see and hear Nintendo direct news from...

Rest in Peace, Satoru Iwata. :( Thank you for bringing joy to the world, you will be missed.
