Nintendo CEO Satoru Iwata had passed away

Nintendo CEO Satoru Iwata Has Passed Away - IGN

Nintendo CEO Satoru Iwata has passed away at age 55.

"Nintendo Co., Ltd. deeply regrets to announce that President Satoru Iwata passed away on July 11, 2015 due to a bile duct growth", reads a statement from the publisher.

Iwata-san had spent the last couple of years battling the growth discovered on his bile duct, which resulted in his absence at last year's E3.

Nintendo was a staple for kids back in the day. Still is somewhat.

Just stumbled upon this article from 2013, on the death of the previous CEO, Hiroshi Yamauchi.

Nintendo’s former CEO, Hiroshi Yamauchi, passed away last month with many mourning the loss of the stubborn businessman who made Nintendo into what it is today. His final words to current CEO Satoru Iwata was to kill himself if the Wii U failed.
In honor of Yamauchi’s final words, Iwata has repeatedly stressed in later interviews that he will kill himself in a Nintendo Direct if the Wii U fails.
Not to make light of the situation, but that's kind of
Poor timing

I don't really follow the video game industry, so not sure if Wii U is considered a success or not.
