Star Fox Zero credits pay tribute to late Nintendo boss Satoru Iwata

The upcoming Star Fox Zero for the Wii U features a touching tribute to the late Satoru Iwata.

The former president of Nintendo, Iwata passed away last July after ongoing health issues. A message in the credits of Star Fox Zero, which is due to launch later this month, reads: star fox iwata tribute

“This game is dedicated to our wingman who fell in battle.”

Work on the game began while Iwata was still working at Nintendo, and the use of this moment to make a touching tribute using the game’s jargon is no doubt a fitting ode to such an incredible man of the games industry.
