Unfortunately, the world lost a great man last weekend with the passing of Nintendo president Satoru Iwata; however, fans and gaming executives have come together to honor Iwata in many ways.

One such fan has created a petition on Change.org to honor Mr. Iwata with his very own Amiibo; even if the Amiibo lacks in-game functionality, it could be a great way for fans to remember Mr. Iwata by keeping a piece of him on their shelves alongside Nintendo icons like Mario and Link.

If you want to support the petition, you can click the link below and sign it; you can also share it with your friends via Facebook, Twitter, and other forms of social media. Even if it doesn’t influence Nintendo in any way, it’s still another way to show support for Iwata-san, his family, and the company that he worked so hard to run.

Our Verdict

Elijah Holt
Greetings Gamnesiacs! I'm Elijah Holt, a Associate Editor coming at you live from beautiful Alabama. My love for gaming started at an early age and has ingrained a love for two different gaming companies in my mind. On one side, my love of the Nintendo 64 and my countless hours spent perfecting the first few levels of Super Mario 64 (I was never good enough to get past those...maybe if they release it for the Wii U eShop someday...) resulted in my love for everything Nintendo; meanwhile, I also owned an original PlayStation, which has resulted in me currently owning a PS3 and PS4 for a few Sony exclusives and third-party titles. I'm a recent graduate of Auburn University, where I majored in Software Engineering. I currently work in DevOps as an Automation Engineer. I look forward to continuing to provide the finest content on the internet to loyal Gamnesia readers like you. Want to contact me? You can always shoot me an email at [email protected]
