In the realm of video games, especially in the last two decades or so, the need for “visual personalities” to come and help sell the games and consoles was vital. And during a key period in Nintendo’s history, they brought in a man named Reggie Fils-Aime to help change the perception of the company, and he did just that. With his passion, kindness, and willingness to be a meme, Reggie won the hearts of all who watched him work.
Then, very sadly, during the early years of the Switch, the Nintendo of America President decided to step down from the company to pursuee other ventures. Which apparently includes…writing a book!
