Almost 200k people have followed @Reggie on twitter already, as the former Nintendo of America President begins packing up his office.

It’s official everybody. Reggie Fils-Aime has begun his life as a “normie”. 

Today on Twitter, the video game celebrity and beloved Nintendo of America President once known as “Reggienator” shared with the world his new, very normal, Twitter account.

Just a few months ago the world reacted to the announcement that Fils-Aime would be retiring from Nintendo. These days, it’s all celebration and thanks pouring in from all corners of the gaming world. 

Taking us on one last awesome adventure, Fils-Aime tweeted from his Nintendo office as he was beginning to pack things up. It’s an odd sensation, watching on social media as the continents connection and face of Nintendo starts drifting away from our normal interactions with the leader. 

A little later, Fils-Aime found a pile of his exhibition badges from his time at Nintendo of America. Sharing a photo of his E3 Badge from 2004, Fils-Aime wrote “The legend started here ... my badge from E3, 2004. “My name is Reggie ...””

The former VH1 and Pizza Hut executive found a real home in the video game industry. In 2003 he joined Nintendo of America as the Executive Vice-President of Sales and Marketing. It wouldn’t take long though, for Fils-Aime to hit his stride in our beautiful industry, and he became President in 2006. 

For 13-years the Reggienator and his absolute adoration for gaming and bringing the world happiness infected Nintendo’s presence around the world but made its biggest impact here in America. 

While both the world and Fils-Aime himself, have to adjust to the new world without the friendly and passionate leader of the fun-world, hopefully, he will continue to take us down memory lane on this new Twitter account. 

It’s hard to say goodbye to such a beloved and expected face at the forefront of Nintendo, but there are so many great Reggie Fils-Aime memories to hold on to. 

What’s your favorite memory from Nintendo’s leading-man Reggie Fils-Aime?
