24 Hours Before Wii U Launch, Reggie Surprises The Nintendo Faithful in NYC

Nintendo of America boss Reggie Fils-Aime did the Jimmy Fallon show on Friday, got some dinner and then... he took a stroll to the Nintendo World Store. He found more than 50 people camped out to pick up the Wii U at midnight Saturday night. I tagged along to see what happened.


I walked the line with the Nintendo boss and GTTV's Geoff Keighley. Reggie bantered with fans, took requests and helped us hunt for elusive Triforce Johnson, the supposed lead person on line to pick up a Wii U. (He wasn't there!)


Sorry for the shaky cam, but this was done on the fly.

"You guys and gals excited to be giving us money this Sunday?!"


"Anyone have any suggestions?"

"Maybe a Fatal Frame game? Maybe get rid of region locking? Bring over some of the big Japanese games like Project X Zone or Bravely Default?"

"ZELDA! I think I heard someone say Zelda!"
