Hiroshi Yamauchi

 

We’re terribly sorry to inform you that Hiroshi Yamauchi died today in a Kyoto hospital, where he had been suffering from pneumonia for several months.

Yamauchi, a longtime (and beloved) president of Nintendo  from 1949 to 2002, was 85.

Farewell Yamauchi-sama, thanks for everything, you’ll be missed.
