Reggie Fils-Aime, president of Nintendo of America, is at E3 in Los Angeles this week to promote Nintendo’s latest resurgence and hype people up on the coming year of Switch and 3DS games. But he’s also ready to field questions, and we had a bunch.
Yesterday, the developers of the colorful adventure game Rime announced that it will be out on May 26 for PC, PS4, Xbox One. Later, it’ll also come to Nintendo Switch, although you’ll have to pay an extra $10 for the privilege.
The pre-E3 walk of the LA Convention Center and its surrounding area is a tradition here at Kotaku. Take a look at the stuff our folks on the ground will be tired of looking at by the time the show ends. Except Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aimé. Who could ever tire of that cheerful mug?
My annual interviews with Nintendo of America boss Reggie Fils-Aime are upbeat affairs. He’s always feeling good about the line-up and remains unruffled as I pepper him with as many questions about as many topics as I can squeeze in.
Last year, Nintendo of America boss Reggie Fils-Aime made a shocking confession: he sucked at Smash Bros. But he swore he’d be back a year later to kick some ass, and true to his word, return today he did. He just forgot the part about kicking ass.
Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime is many things, but until now, he couldn't put being a Super Smash Bros. stage on his resume. That's changed, thanks to a creative player who transformed the executive into a great spot for Mario, Link, and others to beat each other up.
Nintendo president Reggie Fils-Aime came to today's exclusive-news-filled VGX show today to reveal Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze's release date, confirm a leaked character—Cranky Kong, and show a couple of gorgeous levels of the game. Enough?
Remember that in February, Nintendo declared the "Year of Luigi." Unless they were retroactively declaring January to be a Month of Luigi, too, this proclamation should extend into 2014—and Reggie Fils-Aime, the Nintendo of America president, said today it does.
Nintendo of America boss Reggie Fils-Aime says he wants more Dragon Quest. That's great! Bring'em over!
Nintendo of America's Twitter account, normally home to perfectly sane product announcements, got a little weird this evening when President Reggie Fils-Aime took over. Our bodies weren't ready.
Nintendo has to compete with two more machines this fall, the Xbox One and PlayStation 4, both launching in November. It's part of Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime's job description to be unfazed by that. Here's his take on the pending competition:
Nintendo will be launching a new portable gaming system in October. It's called the Nintendo 2DS. It's a 3DS without the 3D, and it's shaped like a thin piece of cake.
Nintendo's home console can be yours for just $299.99 starting September 20, the house of Mario announced today. That's a $50 price cut for a console that's about to get a steady flow of Nintendo-made games but that's been struggling to sell at even half the pace of its predecessor.
"If [Sakurai] wants, my body is ready." That's Nintendo's Reggie Fils-Aime, answering a fan question a month ago about whether he'd be in the next Smash Bros. game. Now, there's a petition asking creator Masahiro Sakurai to actually add Fils-Aime as a playable character—and it's got almost 7000 signatures. [via CVG]
A month ago, Nintendo played the unfeeling corporate villain in an online spat about popular Let's Play videos and the gamers who make them. A month later, there is evidence of a possible resolution.
In a season of new Mario Karts and Donkey Kong Country games Nintendo hears the calls from supporters and critics to make something new. Their answer: we're already doing it.
Reggie Fils-Aime, president of Nintendo of America, is aware of all the Wii U skepticism. He's certainly aware of mine and the fact that there's a $400 PlayStation 4 bearing down on his $350 32GB Wii U this fall. Plus an Xbox. What, him worry?
Reggie Fils-Aime is the Nintendo of America honcho. And while he works for a Japanese company, he's no Japanese language wizard like in-house localizer Bill Trinen. He is, however, a vengeful, vengeful man. They don't call that man the Regginator for nothing.
This shouldn't come as a surprise. Folks at Sony own Nintendo game machines. They own the Xbox 360, too. And the same is true of those companies, too.
