Disappeared, but never forgotten …
Even since the sad death of former Nintendo president Satoru Iwata in 2015, his legacy has been referenced through a series of tributes in the game and in the industry. Another touching touch has recently been discovered in the game Nintendo 3DS Pokemon Ultra Sun & Moon .
Should a player visit the Game Freak building of the title, while he has a Gold or Silver Pokemon at his party, then he will be given a story about the fight to get so much data into the games Game Boy Color 1999, until the developers were helped by an "amazing kid".
"When we were having problems adjusting all the data for Gold and Silver and we were really in trouble," recalls the Game Freak employee. "This amazing guy came and made a program for us that solved all our problems, he soon became the incredible president of a big company, shortly after that as well."
Iwata's contribution to Gold and Silver referenced here, was his design of a data compression technique that allowed the game to be compressed into Pokemon Red & Blue in the Kanto region without compromising the size of Gold & Silver & # 39; s own world, Johto.
This small and moving reference is another example of the great work that Iwata did, not only during his time as president of Nintendo, but in the many years he worked with HAL Laboratory. The tributes that are found in videogames and among their fams, since their death they say a lot about Iwata's talent, influence and indelible legacy.
