    :( very sad to see Reggie go. That said, I wish him the best in life. On a final note, I think it's high time we got Amiibos of Nintendo icons like Reggie, Iwata and Miyamoto. A little way to appreciate the people behind Nintendo history.

    To be fair, the real legendary trio would be Miyamoto, Gunpei Yokoi, and Koji Kondo

    Ha ha...It seems that the hacking community is too much for Reggie.
    He had to call it quits before he got a heart attack.
    Wonder who is going to replace him and get that heart attack???? Time can only tell!

    Interesting. He is only 57 and he can be retire ? I thought around his birth year to be 62 according to Social Security. You cannot retire early until you are 62. And a younger people in their early years to be 65 if I understand correct. He is not disabled but he is allowed to be retire at early age of 57 ? Sounds unfair to me. :wtf::glare:

    I never liked him and his beady little reptile eyes and sex offender face! :gun:

    You can retire any time you like if you have the funds. I am guessing he earned untold millions during his tenure in various C level roles, and probably has shares in various things to boot. Or if you prefer 1 million in the bank is 50000 a year for 20 years (and that is without interest being earned and whatever investments he made and shares he has), and I presume he has several times that and his house paid off already. Oh and he could probably make a little bit of pocket money doing the event speaking bit.

    Funny how he said "My body is still ready." In the twitter post.

    This man is a god, and he will always be the god of Nintendo. Long live Papa Reggie!

    His body may no longer be ready, but his body will always be Reggie.

    The meme himself finally dies.

    Maybe now i'll cringe less during directs. Oof.

    Though I can't help but feel Bowser got a promotion for a very specific reason :unsure:

    Bowser is charge of the Mushroom Kingdom for real now. Also, it's sad that his body can't be ready anymore

    On a kind of a side note, Lets hope this guy Doogie Howser.... i mean Doug Bowser does not introduce Nintendo to any of the practices from EA with lootboxes,microtransactions,buggie/unfinished games,dlc before the game is even made etc.

    What does this mean for the future of Nintendo? How much pull does this guy have? Who is this Doug bowser guy and what's he going to do with Nintendo games? Make more mobile games to capitalize on that market? Is he going to push prime 4 through?

    No better time to have a year of bowser soon.
    Reggie has been around for so long but it'll be nice to see a new face more often.
    Reggie's speech was really nice too.
