Talk:Satoru Iwata

From the Super Mario Wiki, the Mario encyclopedia

If we have an article on the current Nintendo President, why not the previous three? Fusajiro Yamauchi, Sekiryo Kaneda, and Hiroshi Yamauchi deserve articles as well. – My Bloody Valentine

People have not been emphasized here because most gamers don't know about them (I included :P). If they did anything with Mario, go for it. Wa Yoshihead.png TC@Y 02:31, 10 June 2007 (EDT)
Well, the original two had nothing to do with Mario, but Hiroshi Yamauchi was the one who started the Mario project. After hearing about Shigeru Miyamoto's game Donkey Kong, he funded the project, and he has even helped produce many of them. OK, I'll leave the first two out, and put Hiroshi in. Thanks – My Bloody Valentine

I shall create this portal, in which someone searching on the most wanted list will find this red-linked portal or somebody reading this page will be cool enough to create it.Knife (talk) 13:29, 11 June 2007 (EDT)

Appearance as fictional character[edit]

Since Satoru Iwata appeared as a minor character in a game and was even mentioned by name, can he be classified as both a real and as a "fictional" person, just like Lou Albano? --Grandy02 17:25, 9 January 2009 (EST)

Yes. -- Son of Suns (talk)
Thanks! :-) --Grandy02 17:57, 9 January 2009 (EST)

Iwata Asks[edit]

Should these be mentioned as well? I have seen them for New Super Mario Bros. Wii and (I think) Super Mario Galaxy 2. --YoshiMP8Artwork.png SuperYoshiBros YoshiMP8Artwork.png 16:53, 22 May 2011 (EDT)

Satoru Iwata death a Brain tumor[edit]

Hi, Satoru Iwata is dead July, 11 2015 but he is not dead the bil duct growth, he dead the Brain tumor. (Check the French Wikipédia) --Captain Yoshi MK8 Yellow Yoshi Icon.png 09:05, 13 July 2015 (EDT)

The PDF released by Nintendo to announce his death states in no uncertain term it was due to bile duct cancer. --Glowsquid (talk) 09:34, 13 July 2015 (EDT)
Really ? Okay. --Captain Yoshi MK8 Yellow Yoshi Icon.png 11:28, 13 July 2015 (EDT)

A problem in List of Games section[edit]

The last game marked Iwata had Executive Producer was in The Lengend of Zelda: Breath of The Wild, I'm unsure if I need to change it or not, but I am going to leave it alone because I'm unsure if that should be added. John Denver Fan (talk) 17:59, 3 May 2018 (EDT)

Since Iwata is listed as an/the Executive Producer in just about every game since his promotion to his death, the only games we list are the Mario ones where he's credited otherwise. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild doesn't need to be added. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 18:02, 3 May 2018 (EDT)
