I wish him the best of luck. Iwata is a tough act to follow, at least on stage, but here's hoping he can improve the business side of the company and get some good marketing going.

Good luck, good sir. I don't think anyone is going to even come close to matching Iwata's popularity for a good few decades, but those credentials he's waving around are no joke so I'm expecting Nintendo is in good hands.

I'm gonna never forget Mr. Iwata but I hope he can manage to keep Nintendo in good shape... especially without pulling icky stuff other publishers might do.
