John Kirby was the lawyer who defended Nintendo in the Donkey Kong Universal trial of olden days, and was also the namesake of our favorite pink puffball. You led a good life, and you will be missed. Mario would not be what it is today without you. Rest in peace.


Surely you jestin!
First Iwata, and now John Kirby!? That's sad. Hopefully Mr. Miyamoto and Charles Martinet don't die anytime soon.
