In a shocking and very heartbreaking statement that Nintendo released today, Nintendo’s CEO Satoru Iwata has passed away.

“Nintendo Co., Ltd. deeply regrets to announce that President Satoru Iwata passed away on July 11, 2015 due to a bile duct growth,” the company said in their statement.

Iwata had to skip E3 last year to undergo surgery to remove the cancer, which unfortunately wasn’t successful, in the end. A visionary, a man that the Nintendo fans would grow to love and respect over the years, Iwata will forever be missed.
