Nintendo's President is Retiring

Written by on | OpenCritic

According to a press release from Nintendo, Reggie Fils-Aime will retire on April 15 this year, bringing 15 years of employment at Nintendo to a close. He became an internet sensation after his E3 debut in 2004.


He's also credited with the meme "My Body is Ready" after using the phrase to introduce the Wii Balance Board at E3 in 2007.

More than any of his antics, however, Reggie will be remembered for bringing a voice of unity and excitement to the Nintendo brand. While other gaming companies have struggled with accessibility and expanding to new audiences, Reggie has pushed Nintendo's brand and games to support a wide array of gamers while still maintaining the vision that we're all just gamers.
