  1. 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.

  2. Ever since last year's E3, it's been assumed that The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild would be the Wii U's final first-party release, but now Nintendo of America's Reggie Fils-Aime has confirmed that this is indeed the case in a recent interview with Polygon. However, though Nintendo won't be making any more new Wii U titles, Reggie also said that Nintendo will still be supporting the online components for the foreseeable future and that the ongoing activity for both Mario Kart 8 and Splatoon is "significant." It's also worth noting that eShop releases will still continue from indie developers and possibly some smaller third parties, though it's unknown whether new Virtual Console games will be released on Wii U after the launch of Nintendo Switch. Also in question is the future of the game known as Project Giant Robot, which was one of two final games (alongside Breath of the Wild) to appear on the most recent release forecast for Wii U in Nintendo's investor reports. Whether the game was outright cancelled or changed in concept, we'll have to wait and see. In the meantime, Nintendo's final first party title for the Wii U -- The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild -- will release on March 3. Source: Polygon What are your thoughts on Breath of the Wild being the final first-party release?
  3. With all of the hullabaloo over the Nintendo Switch recently, fans naturally assumed that Nintendo would be putting the 3DS out to pasture, especially since the Switch doubles as a handheld. But Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime recently reinforced Nintendo's dedication to their existing handheld for the near future. WIRED's Chris Kohler shared a comment from an interview with Reggie that was cut from the final published piece, where the latter stated: "There are [3DS] games that we haven't announced yet... that I know, Chris, are going to make you excited." Reggie's public declaration of continued support for 3DS is great to hear, though the company hasn't commented on how long we can expect them to continue doing so. Will it be until the end of the year, or into 2018 and beyond? It likely depends on how well the Switch is received. One of Nintendo's big goals is for Switch to hit 10 million units sold in the first year, something that both the Wii and PS4 achieved handily, but the Xbox One and Xbox 360 fell slightly short of. If Switch's sales trail off after the launch period, Nintendo would likely continue supporting 3DS for longer than it had initially intended, whereas if the opposite happens, 2017 might be the handheld's swan song. In any case, it's great to know there will be more 3DS games coming throughout the year in addition to the games we already know of in Q1/Q2. Reggie's comment also makes it sound as if there is at least one surprise in the works, if not more. Could this be the long-awaited Mother 3 announcement, or even a confirmation of Dragon Quest XI for North America? We'll have to wait and see. Nintendo generally announces their Q2 titles around March or April, and we'll find out what the Q3/Q4 lineup is at E3, so stay tuned. Source: Chris Kohler (via Twitter) Are you surprised that more unannounced 3DS games are coming this year?
  4. http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=727849 I honestly don't know if Reggie is being serious or not with this, but apparently he said that Masahiro Sakurai might add him as a character in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS if he can get 100,000 people to sign a petition. Well, the petition has almost 46,000 signatures already... http://www.change.org/en-CA/petitions/sora-sakurai-add-reggie-fils-aime-to-the-super-smash-bros-3ds-wii-u-roster-reggieforsmashbros If Sakurai was actually serious about this, this could be the start of Nintendo adding their executives in the title. Of course, Reggie would probably be the only one due to his fame, but I imagine the Japanese crowd might like to see Miyamoto or Iwata in the game as well (especially with the latter's Nintendo Direct gestures and such). What do you think? Is this something you'd like to see or should Nintendo avoid this idea like the plague?
  5. Most of us are busy playing Animal Crossing: New Leaf right now, but 3DS owners in North American may soon be getting a similar game that is centered around everyday play. Reggie Fils-Aime, Nintendo of America's president, was interviewed by MTV Multiplayer and said this when asked if similar games to New Leaf would release in the future: "Certainly. You're absolutely correct, that 'Animal Crossing' is the type of game that you want to play certainly every day, and there are benefits to having the digital version right there on your hardware. I have to say, personally, I don“t find it a huge inconvenience to be swapping out my game cards. There are other games, 'Tomodachi Collection' in Japan, which is something that we are looking hard at for our market, that's another one that benefits from those short bursts of play, on a day-in, day-out basis." Hopefully we'll see some sort of official word on a NA release for Tomodachi Collection: New Life soon!

  7. Nintendo has announced the promotion of Nintendo of America's chairman and CEO, Tatsumi Kimishima, today. He will now assume the duties as managing director at Nintendo Co., Ltd headquarters in Kyoto, Japan. So, who's the new CEO of Nintendo of America? The current Global President, Satoru Iwata, of course! Nintendo claims that this move "will support the company“s unified global strategy, allow streamlined decision making and enhance Nintendo's organizational agility in the current competitive environment." Reggie Fils-Aime will be continuing his role as Nintendo of America's president and COO. What do you think of Iwata being the new CEO of Nintendo of America?
  8. Saw this earlier on Kotaku and thought it was interesting. Looks like it was filmed by Stephen Totilo, and Geoff Keighley was there as well. They were tagging along with Reggie as he visited the people camping out for the Wii U launch (24 hours before) to kill time before his appearance on Jimmy Fallon.
