  • Reggie got some sweet gifts after retiring from Nintendo

    April 17, 2019 2 min read

    We miss Reggie. We really do! It's been a few days since Reggie Fils-Aimé departed from Nintendo to enjoy the sweet, leisurely retired life, but the sting of his absence from this industry hasn't let up.

    As Brett recently highlighted, there is a silver lining. Now that he's no longer the president and face of Nintendo of America, Reggie has more breathing room to do his thing on Twitter. So far, it's mostly been a bittersweet collection of knickknacks that are sure to spark fond memories for Nintendo fans. His first E3 badge, from 2004. That gigantic Mii head. An office decked out in amiibo. Then came the gifts.

    The Mario statue, in particular, is worth a closer look. The inscription reads: "Congratulations on your retirement and years of dedicated service. From all your friends at Nintendo and fans around the world."

    It's all so very heartwarming. Seeing all of these sincere gifts brings closure.

    If and when Reggie slows down on the Twitter updates or eventually decides it's time to step out of the limelight, he can rest easy knowing that he's had a positive impact on many people's lives.
