Nintendo has just announced that Reggie Fils-Aime, the president of Nintendo of America, will be retiring.
I guess it's fitting the new head of the Nintendo America is named "Bowser"
I thought the same thing lol
Ahahahaha nice catch!
LOL! Is this a sick joke!? LoL All your princesses are in trouble.
Haha does that mean the next Mario game will sport Bowser as the hero and Mario and gang as the villains? I mean, now that Bowser is the new Nintendo of America president.
"Previously, Bowser was an executive with industry powerhouse Electronic Arts, most recently as the company’s Vice President of Global Business Planning." -Oh God, Bowser is real and he was born out of EA. Bye Reggie, we'll miss you. :\
I'm calling nepotism on this one. Guess his uncle works as a janitor for Nintendo maybe?
He's actually not even qualified.. he's just a janitor. But the name draws interest and intrigue. Well played, Nintendo.
But....Bowser is just a evil kappa.
be even more fitting if his name was Mario Bowser
this nigga's name is Bowser.
I know, right. They're putting bowser at the leadership of nintendo, what could possibly go wrong? All future mario games now will have bowser as the protagonist and mario as the villain.
"Brother help me"
Wow, end of an era.
My body wasn't ready for this. He's done a great job though and times change and Doug's surname certainly fits the bill.
Oh hell yeah, im definitely happy about this. time to get some new blood to oversee the american audience.
It doesn’t matter who is in charge of NOA when NOJ pulls all the strings.
Exactly,this means little to nothing.
Actually it does matter, regardless if NOJ pulls strings or not. New blood is needed to reinvigorate a company and that is just a fact.
American Audience is the problem.
NO we are not! We are like everybody else. The problem is those who think all Americans think the same. Im American (naturalized) and like many Americans I like all sorts of games including Japanese games. Stop pushing a political agenda on gamers.
And Nintendo needs to adapt to the American Audience. Not the other way around.
There’s a problem with our money? Oh ok, we can send it elsewhere then. Stereotype much...?
Reggie had done an amazing job, so I don’t know why you are happy for him to be replaced. The guy is funny and he truly care about games.
I wouldn’t say amazing job, not much to show for WiiU , ton of shovelware of for Wii in US . Switch is doing better but it needs more adult games , exclusive Japanese rpgs
The american audience now has a former VP from EA in charge of Nintendo. Wait for all of the microtransactions and unfinished, unpolished games.
You really dont what youre talking about because as NOA you may have some say in certain things but at the end of the day we all know who gets the final say
My body was not ready for this news. End of an era.
Yeah, both Iwata and Reggie gone :/ I hope Reggie sticks around to appear time-to-time, assuming he's retiring and not going to work somewhere else. It's too bad Miyamoto is getting up there in age, it might not be too long before he's out as well.
It's sad, I will miss the guy. I will always remember his excitement when presenting new hardware, the Nintendo DS comes to mind. Oh well, he deserves the rest, he leaves the company on a high note with the Switch doing so good.
So Bowser will be running Nintendo? Uh oh....
Mario will not be rescuing Peach in the next game and Bowser dating simulator is coming.
Gotta say not a fan of Reggie. Always spoke the company line ie defending terrible nintendo decisions in the past. Just wasn't a very honest or relateable guy.
Oh please. All companies highlight their strengths and ignore or downplay their weaknesses. Nintendo, Sony and Microsoft all do it.
Whilst that is for most part true, both Sony and Microsoft execs do give some pretty honest answers from time to time. Like acknowledging areas they need to improve. I can't think of a single time Reggie said that. Ever.
@Fraggle “Despite the strong presentation from Nintendo at this year’s E3, Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime admits that the company didn’t do enough to create the momentum needed to push the console properly in 2013.” https://nintendotoday.com/r...
I also disliked Reggie and I know nothing about this new guy, buy the word EA is enough to me me anxious and want him back.
Bowser right now https://i.pinimg.com/origin... *Gives us 25 Bowser centric games* :)
Filet Mignon nooooo
Wow What? Why? I felt sorry at times for the guy, because sometimes he had to make good PR with really really bad numbers... But now the Switch is a damn success specially in USA
He's gonna be missed. No one can deny how much of an iconic face he was at Nintendo regardless if you like him or not.
Great guy and sad news. He will be missed. Its like that moment when Jack Tretton stepped down.
Yeah, Jack was awesome by far my favourite Sony exec, he had an awesome crowd-pleasing smile too.
All things must pass, as George Harrison would say, and sadly that includes the Reggielution. "My name is Reggie. I'm about kickin' ass, I'm about takin' names, and we're about makin' games." - Yep, well over a decade later and I still haven't forgot. Enjoy retirement, good sir. And, I can't believe I'm saying this, but good luck Bowser. I look forward to seeing what you bring to the table.
Any relation to the enemy Bowser from Mario? LOL!!
Reggie's alright, but there something about Reggie Fans that reminds me willing ignorance of the smell of pampers.
His body is done.
His body is (re)tired.
Hope Dougs body is ready too
Bowser rules American Nintendo
Was hoping Ganon would get the job, but gratz to Bowser.
It was a close race between Doug Bowser, Jim Gannon, Stewart Link and Micheal Falcon.
How dare they left out Mary Peach? Nintendo is so sexism.
Comedy gold lol!
End of an era. Good luck Reggie and enjoy your retirement
Maybe Mr. Bowser will release a 4K capable Nintendo console.
Or work with Switch since it's currently outselling all other platforms.
😱😱😱 28561;😱😱㈸ 1;😱😱😱 128561;😰😰ԅ 60;😰😰😰& #128560;😰😰body was not ready
Princess is in another castle.
Your body is always ready.
My body is Dougie?.... nope, doesn't work.
Maybe he can teach you how to Dougie!?
Holy hell, I was not expecting that. A Reggie-less Nintendo. That's so weird to think about.
wait the guy replacing him's name is really Bowser? LOL
No more giant hands misrepresenting the size of their handhelds 😞
Gonna miss him
That name girl! Love it
