Former Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime is now enjoying his retirement from the company as of this week and, having just recently joined Twitter, he's shared an image of an epic painting that he received from The Game Awards' Geoff Keighley (and commissioned by artist Sam Spratt) to commemorate his time with Nintendo.
The painting depicts Fils-Aime with his hands in the air as if he's manipulating marionettes as he's positioned over three of his most popular animated likenesses, as listed below.
(From left to right in the painting)
- Reggie's Mii - which was most famously shown off during the reveal for Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS
- Puppet Reggie (some would say "Muppet" Reggie) - whom made his memorable appearance in a Nintendo Digital Event during E3 2015 and was designed/crafted by none other than Jim Henson's Creature Shop.
- Robot Chicken figure Reggie - whom made his appearance during Nintendo's 2014 E3 Presentation, which the Robot Chicken creators created special segments for.
In any case, the painting certainly is an epic sendoff for the beloved former NOA president, who is now retired with Nintendo currently at the top of their game (no pun intended) in the industry.
