So just a little background regarding this video.

My kids and I watched every Nintendo direct on our WiiU, it became an event in our house and we were all very excited each time they came on.

I kept the kids on Nintendo systems for al long as I could because I wanted them to be kids, I wanted them to be lost in innocence and enjoy the kid and family friendly nature on Nintendo. Iwata, Reggie and Miamoto became stars to the kids and they realized that the long linage of games and characters they love these guys had a hand in all of it.

When Iwata died we all cried over here, it was very sad to see his passing.

The man that brought so much to our family fun time passed and we all sat there and cried.  Because of these Nintendo directs my daughter is studying Japanese to become a translator for Nintendo, thats what she want to do.


This is such a touching tribute to his work
