    Most North American Nintendo fans will be familiar with the name of Reggie Fils-Aime, the current head of Nintendo of America. It appears that his body is no longer ready, however, as 2019 will be his last year with the company. On April 15, he will retire from his position at Nintendo, and will be replaced by Doug Bowser, the VP of sales and marketing. Reggie began work at NOA 15 years ago, starting as the VP of marketing in 2003, and quickly rising to the rank of president in 2006, becoming well known to fans in the region through his personality and jokes during conferences and Nintendo Direct videos.

    So the replacement and soon will be President of Nintendo of America is the big bad villain of the Mario series.

    That's really sad to hear. When I think of Nintendo, Reggie is one of them.

    It could be worse, Nintendo could've gone a completely different direction and put Bowsette in charge.
