Reggie Fils-Amie Retires from Nintendo


To anyone who’s an avid Nintendo Fan (like yours truly), you then know of their larger than life Nintendo of America President, Reggie Files-Amie.  I knew we had something cool when he made his debut at E3 years ago.

Today is bittersweet, as it has been announced by Reggie himself that he will be retiring as President.  His last day at Nintendo will be April 15th.  Nintendo tweeted a farewell video, with Reggie thanking Nintendo fans.

Reggie has also announced who will be his predecessor when he leaves. Reggie’s replacement will be Doug Bowser, who is currently the head of Sales and Marketing at Nintendo of America.

Insert Bowser Joke here.

No, really.  That is his name.  But of course who better to take over?

Thanks so much for everything Reggie!!!
