late Nintendo boss Satoru Iwata immortalized in epic Amiibo now up for auction
If you’ve got a soft spot for charity and want to add a fitting memorial to the late Nintendo President Satoru Iwata to your Amiibo collection, now’s your chance. Custom Amiibo maker GandaKris has created a fittingly heroic Satoru Iwata model and is auctioning it off for charity in collaboration with the Amiibo news site Amiibo Alerts.
The eBay auction for the Satoru Iwata Memorial Custom Amiibo is currently underway with over 70 bids and sitting at just under a whopping thousand dollars. And that number will certainly grow until it ends in three days time. All proceeds from the auction be going to the Child’s Play charity, which has been dedicated to improving the lives of children through contributions of toys and games to over 70 hospitals worldwide since 2003.
Iwata assumed the role of President of Nintendo in 2002 and held the title until his death this summer. Satoru Iwata passed away on July 11, 2015 due to complications from a bile duct growth.
