Again in February, Reggie Fils-Aimé introduced that he could be stepping down from his function as Nintendo of America President on 15th April. Time has raced by since then, because it so typically does, and we have now reached that very day.
The primary time we, as Nintendo followers, noticed Reggie stroll out onto the stage was throughout E3 2004. “My title is Reggie. I am about kickin’ ass, I am about takin’ names, and we’re about makin’ video games”, he mentioned, immediately successful over a superb variety of excited followers who had been desperate to be taught what was coming subsequent from Nintendo. Who might overlook an introduction like that?
We cannot gush about what Reggie has accomplished for Nintendo and for its followers an excessive amount of right here – we have already spoken about what he meant to Nintendo, the trade and extra, and even shared a choice of his biggest moments on digital camera – but it surely’s protected to say that he is change into virtually synonymous with the corporate during the last 15 years and it is unhappy to see him go.
Now, we transfer on to a brand new period with Doug Bowser on the helm. Apart from having maybe probably the most good title potential for the function, Bowser has been shadowing Reggie since becoming a member of Nintendo in 2015 and looks like a pure match for the job. It’s going to be fascinating to see how – and if – issues really feel any completely different going ahead, and the way Bowser makes an attempt to fill Reggie’s much-adored sneakers.
