Pokemon Ultra Sun and Pokemon Ultra Moon pay tribute to Satoru Iwata

Posted on November 23, 2017 by (@NE_Brian) in 3DS, News

It’s been over two years since late Nintendo president Satoru Iwata passed away. The loss is something that many haven’t forgotten, including Pokemon developer Game Freak.

In Pokemon Ultra Sun and Pokemon Ultra Moon, the games pay tribute to Iwata. We won’t go into the details for those who want to experience it for themselves, but we have a look at the tribute below.

How nice is that? Even if it’s just some random NPC, this is a great way to honor the memories of Satoru Iwata.

    That’s so cool. Makes me more inclined to grab an Ultra version sooner rather than later.

    I think this was the first time its ever been stated Iwata made a program for them. Most other interviews say he helped fit the game on the cart but not how.

    Iwata was a once in a lifetime kind of man. He is sorely missed.

    Not a Pokemon fan (of course I know the story he’s referring to) but that’s really nice!
