During this week’s GDC 2016, the annual Game Developers Choice Awards took place last night to honor the best and biggest achievements of the past year, though the ceremony also took the time to mourn the loss of the late Nintendo president Satoru Iwata in a touching and fitting tribute to one of the video game industry’s most notable figures.

Originally shown during the GDC Awards 2016, the ceremony’s touching tribute to Satoru Iwata was released for all to see, as an emotional thank you to Satoru Iwata’s contributions to both Nintendo and the greater world of video gaming, following his passing in July of last year after a battle with cancer.

The full tribute video to Satoru Iwata from the Game Developers Choice Awards can be viewed below:
