Since Satoru Iwata’s passing a couple of weeks ago, numerous personalities from the game industry have shared their favorite memories of the late Nintendo president. In a recent tweet from EarthBound‘s lead designer, Shigesato Itoi shared a rare picture of Satoru Iwata sitting on a couch in casual attire. The photo, which was taken back in August of 2010, also features Iwata’s dog lying comfortably on his lap.
Since most of the photos that we see of Iwata have him speaking at conferences and dressed in business suits, it’s interesting to see Iwata in a much more laid back setting. What do you think of the casual photo of Iwata? Let us know in the comments below!
