satoru iwata

Published last year in Japan as Iwata-San, Ask Iwata: Words of Wisdom from Nintendo’s Legendary CEO is the English translation of Hobonichi’s biography of late, great Nintendo leader Satoru Iwata. The English translation was announced today by Viz Media, with digital and print release scheduled for next year.

Yesterday, Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth players got to play as Satoru Iwata. The former head of Nintendo died in 2015. Every year since, he’s appeared in the game on December 6, his birthday. Afterbrith never made it to Wii U or 3DS, so was the first time the tribute was on a Nintendo platform.
