Gamers and Nintendo fans across the globe have paid touching tribute to Satoru Iwata, after the president of Nintendo passed away at the age of just 55.
His time in game development ultimately changed the lives of many people and left a mark on the gaming industry that very few others can claim to have bettered.
Having influenced Pokemon, The Legend of Zelda and Super Mario Bros, among many others, fans took to social media to say thank you – and in some style too.
Here are a few of the spectacular tributes, posted to recognise the life and times of Satoru Iwata.
Thank You Satoru Iwata
