I hate to say so, but I fear that, for as much crap as people gave Iwata at times for some of his decisions, some of which did in fact lead to the Wii U's failure, I will say that I also have felt for awhile now, that Nintendo's decision making and policies seem to have gotten worse, and less "fan friendly", after Iwata's passing. He was a one of a kind guy in this industry, who was both an actual developer himself, and a gamer, who understood what other gamers like and want. That doesn't mean he was perfect, but I do believe that he genuinely tried to do what was best for Nintendo fans, not just for Nintendo's bottom line.
I hope I'm wrong, but the post-Iwata Nintendo certainly feels as if it has lost that certain intangible "something", and I miss it.
