This is quite unfortunate that Iwata has passed, his life was an inspiration.

That video is hilarious.

"Nintendo 62... Nintendo 63... Nintendo 64!"

The way their heads bob when they're walking down the hall make me chuckles every time.

The dark side of the muppets video is now we know why they couldn't show the real Iwata during that feed.

Sad but true if anything. He covered his tracks well and kept working through that month really up to the end which says a lot.

I was listening to the Retronauts NES Launch podcast today, and they went into a little detail about the failed deal between Atari and Nintendo to distribute the Famicom in the US. It turns out that the NES versions of Joust, Millipede, and Stargate were part of Atari's original agreement. Nintendo made the games, but Iwata also was responsible for the NES port of Joust. Later on, he would be part of HAL Laboratory and the American arm would publish those games in 1988.

Gamasutra article about Iwata, HAL, and early work he did for the Famicom..
