Visiting the People

The release of the Wii U was a big deal back in 2012, as it always is when a console releases. At the Nintendo World Store, fans were eagerly waiting at the door during the midnight launch. And of course, who should they see but none other than Reggie, visiting people in line. Once they learned who it was asking them what game they were playing during their long wait, folks freaked out, and if that ain’t just the sweetest thing, nothing else in this world is.

My Name is Reggie Fils Aime…

There’s no denying that Reggie Fils-Aime has a stage presence that instantly draws people to him. In his first ever appearance at E3 2004, the man lets us know what he’s all about with just a handful of words. And from that moment, he prepared to blow us all away.

Settle It in Smash!

Everyone loves smack talk, and Reggie is no exception. During a Nintendo Direct last year, he decided to throw down with Hungrybox in Super Smash Bros. It was a battle for the ages…

Get Rekt in Smash!

…Until Hungry put Reggie to work, at which point the Nintendo of America President got worked over like a steak with a tenderizer. Hungry delivered some pretty good shade, but Reggie got him with the best comeback ever: “I spend 16 hours a day running a company. You spend 16 hours a day playing Smash.”

Reggie Is-Amech

Back in 2014, Nintendo got internet sensations Mega64 to join them in the E3 festivities. Well, “infiltrate” is the more accurate word, but in any case, the guys did what they’re best known for and took things by storm. One such highlight of the video is when Reggie becomes a mech. And yes, it’s as great and ridiculous as it sounds.
