Touching Tribute Message for Satoru Iwata Placed in Star Fox Zero's Credits Sequence

UPDATE (3:21 pm CST): The video has been delisted. However, you can still see the screenshot below.

How about some touching news to hit you right in your feels to start the work week? Despite the embargo for Star Fox Zero not being over until a little over a week, one YouTuber has posted the credits sequence for the game on his channel. That's not the news here, although it doesn't say much about embargoes if people nowadays keep blatantly breaking them.

No, the news is that Nintendo's staff have left a heartfelt and touching message for former president Satoru Iwata, who passed away last July, within the credits of Star Fox Zero. This message occurs after the staffers' names have been listed and while the credits theme hits its dramatic conclusion.

The message reads as follows: "This game is dedicated to our wingman who fell in battle." The wingman is obviously Satoru Iwata. It's a splendid calling to a man who did so much for Nintendo, much more the game industry.

Watch the video for yourself to see the message (for as long as the video stays uploaded), or just hit this link to go directly to the message.
