Default Nintendo visionary Hiroshi Yamauchi dies aged 85

Thanks Zetto for informing me on this

http://www.bbc.co.uk...nology-24160150

He's the guy that created Mario, Donkey Kong, Zelda, Star Fox, and all those other classics.

All I can say is.. Thank You Hiroshi Yamauchi for being a part of my childhood. As well as many others. You will be greatly missed.

He essentially created Nintendo and paved the way both Nintendo as well as the gaming industry works today. RIP

turned it from a trading card company into one of the most recognizable brands in the world (seriously, everybody knows Mario). I know he didn't have direct input in the company, but Nintendo hasn't been the same since he left in 2002.

Did anyone living in Japan here save any newspaper clippings on Yamauchi's passing? Also, did anyone get a glimpse of the funeral procession?
