Ask Iwata Will Soon Be Available
The charming and well-loved former Nintendo president Satoru Iwata- who sadly passed away in 2015 following an illness- inspired a generation of gamers and game developers with his intuitiveness, creativity and visionary work over the course of his life. His work included the development of both the Nintendo DS and the Nintendo Wii.
From 2006 up until his untimely death in 2015, Iwata conducted a series of interviews that would cover various topics in relation to Nintendo, game development, hardware, and various game titles. Elements of these interviews were compiled into a book called Ask Iwata: Words of Wisdom from Nintendo’s Legendary CEO. The book was released last year in Japan under the name Iwata-San by the company Hobonichi but today, Viz Media announced on their Twitter that the book is going to be translated into English and released to Western audiences in the Spring of 2021.
Iwata was such an influential figure who meant so much to so many of us who are invested in the video game world. This book is sure to be a hit for Nintendo fans and gamers alike as well as a wonderful lasting tribute to Iwata’s memory. If you’re interested in reading any of the Iwata Asks interviews before hand, Nintendo have them published on their website that you can find here.
