The head of Nintendo has died.

FOX News Radio's Pam Puso reports:

Nintendo announcing that Company President and CEO Satoru Iwata has died at the age of 55 from a bile duct tumor. 

Iwata was at the helm of the Japanese video game company when it released the Wii and the DS gaming systems, and just a few months ago, he announced that Nintendo would start making games for smartphones.

Fans are reacting on Twitter, thanking Iwata for childhood memories and for bringing families together.
