    Is it a tribute to Iwata?

    No, it's Donkey Kongs birthday.

    Of course it is because of Iwata. And I like it, by the way.

    Oh.
    I thought it was a reference to the 2012 E3

    How is E3 2012 connected to bananas?

    Well, if we're going technical, Donkey Kong (Arcade) was released in July 9 of 1981 so, it was close, but not that much, it's been 34 years since that game was released, damn.

    Anyway, it's a good logo, nice touch.

    Thought it was because of this too.

    Clever way of paying tribute to Iwata. I wonder if some people won't find it in poor taste, though.

    Away from this shithole
    I find it a lot better than the overused "rip".

    I like it. Good way to honor Iwata. He will be missed.

    This is the first time I've ever felt so many emotions over bananas. It's an interesting honour such great man.

    That was the first thing that I thought of when I saw the GBAtemp logo change. Then again, Most people here are here for Nintendo hacking, so most of the site demographic is gravitated towards Nintendo, so it's only suiting that we do commemorate him somehow even if GBAtemp is one site Nintendo is against.

    Exactly, I didn't want to go overboard given the sites history and reputation but I thought this would be a simple touch to honour the man.
