Watch Star Fox Zero's lovely tribute to Satoru Iwata

Nintendo is coming up on a year without Satoru Iwata, but the late president and CEO "with the heart of a gamer" is still remembered in his company's credit sequences. I got a bit choked up when I saw Satoru Iwata listed as executive producer at the end of Fire Emblem Fates, and Star Fox Zero has a message that is cause for even more tearful remembrance.

If you skip to about 5 minutes into this video you won't encounter any story spoilers, but you will get to see the tribute.

"This game is dedicated to our wingman who fell in battle." It's more subtle than that tear-jerking animated short from GDC, but it's no less meaningful. Excuse me while I cry for another half hour.
