I wasn't going to E3 before it was cool. Get your own style Iwata.
Freaking posers, I'm telling ya'

As long as he sends a video of him beating up Reggie again as a sorry card, we're good.

I feel like... this shouldn't really be newsworthy. I mean, E3 is big and all, but not so big that literally every single person from the company needs to be there, especially when they're not even gonna be hosting a live press conference anyways. I think if this would be relevant to anybody, it'd be all the big names making deals in the backrooms where the press don't go, people whom I doubt read the Escapist for their news, and also could probably just get away with actually calling Iwata up on the phone if they needed to speak to him that bad anyways.

This, it was newsworthy last year since Iwata was sick, but this year it just seems to be business that's keeping him in Japan. It's not like he can contribute all that much to the Treehouse seeing as he's not developing games anymore.

Did anybody expect him to be there in the first place?

In other news, Generalissimo Francisco Franco is still dead.

Take it easy, Iwata-sensei.
