Reggie retires

Reggie Fils-Aime, president and COO of Nintendo of America has announced his retirement. On April 15, Reggie will step down from his role to be replaced by Doug Bowser. He's leaving on good terms: in his heartwarming Twitter video he mentions a desire to retire and spend more time with family and friends.

Reggie started with Nintendo in 2003 and made his first public appearance at E3 2004. Since then, he's been a well loved leader and a meme generator. Whether you know him as The Regginator, Fils-A-Mech, or Mr. My Body is Ready, he'll surely be missed by all Nintendo fans.

He's leaving us in the rather capable hands of Doug Bowser, the current SVP of sales and marketing. Longtime Nintendo fans are likely familiar with Mr. Bowser, the only concerns are the terrible puns that we'll have to put up with for years to come.

Thank you Reggie, maybe now you'll have time to practice some Smash Bros.
