This is a very sad day for myself and the Nintendo Community. It has broken my heart and it’s bloomin’ raining too, so that doesn’t really help. I found out that Sarotu Iwata passed away on July 11th, 2015. For those who don’t know of this man, he was the President of Nintendo. Games such as Super Mario 64, Luigi’s Mansion, Super Smash Bros. Melee, The Legend of Zelda were all down to this man’s imagination. And his team of course.
The video above is dedicated to him. I felt it would be dishonourable to not sit and remember the games I used to, and still do, play.
I really admire Sarotu’s work ethic. In an article recently published, I read how he was pushing back the release date of the new Zelda game, for 2016. He mentioned how these things take time, and he would much rather spend the time perfecting the game, and making every single fine detail precisely done, than to release a mediocre game. For this, I am truly grateful. To put time and effort to make something incredible, than to rush it is what everyone should aim for.
My favourite Nintendo Games:
What you see is correct. I met the voice of Mario and he signed my game in the voice of Mario, and called me PRINCESS NEELAM. YES YES YES. DREAM COME TRUE.
What’s yours? Leave me a comment with your thoughts. Thanks for reading and watching. I will be more upbeat in my next post.
Lots of Love,
