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.
Last of my retirement events was last night. Received some wonderful gifts and souvenirs. Yes, that is a working Virtual Boy. Art from Retro Studios. Notebook for names taken. A plastic ass to kick. A book of notes from employees. And a Mario statue. End of an era. pic.twitter.com/mrOVL1ANPO
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.
