It's hard to grasp that it's been a year since Nintendo President, Satoru Iwata passed away due to a bile duct tumor. Genyo Takeda ('Technology Fellow' at Nintendo) summed up how Iwata's journey was so far from over beautifully, in his eulogy:

“Please know, however, that the seeds you have planted, and the plants that have sprouted will put forth small flowers as they bring smiles to the faces of people around the world, blossom into a grand flower bigger than even you, our leader, Iwata-san,” Takeda shared. “Together with Miyamoto and others of our generation, we swear in our hearts that we will continue our efforts so that, someday, we can report and present to you the blossoming of these flowers. May you continuously watch over and guide us managers, our employees and your family.”

Iwata's passing inspired a wealth of heartwarming fan art dedications like these:

Pokémon GO's taken the planet by storm. Lives have been made, ruined, and everything in between by this kickass augmented reality game. We're talking staged robberies like this:



And relationship-ruining NSFW-ish 'gotta catch 'em all' moments like this:



Looks like Google could've predicted much of the madness that's ensued thus far...

What a time to be alive. The game titled, HK, is still very early in development, but the creators went ahead and posted a Q&A to the game's development blog. And this is what we can tell ya based off that:

The third-person solo adventure game takes place in a dystopian city inspired by Kowloon Walled City (see real world shot below), and it takes place in the somewhat distant future based off the presence of humanoid robots:



Check out one of the in-game screenshots that have since been released:



Sure, the game isn't as far along as we could've hoped; but based off what we've seen so far it looks like they nailed the cat's movements! And the image that was shared for the game back in October 2015 makes it look like the game will be using Unreal Engine 4.
