It has hit the news cycle overnight that Nintendo President and CEO, Satoru Iwata, died this past Saturday, July 11, 2015 Mr. Iwata took over as President of the company back in 2002 and spearheaded a resurgence of the company with the Nintendo DS and Wii consoles. Many Nintendo fans know him from his appearances in Nintendo Direct feeds as well. No news on a successor to head up Nintendo yet. We here at ACC certainly salute all Mr. Iwata has done for the Nintendo brand and especially for the continued support of the Animal Crossing series of games and characters which we all hold dear to our hearts.
