Nintendo’s most recognizable figurehead is retiring in April. We are referring to the company’s American president Reggie Fils-Aimé.

The Nintendo Twitter post that broke the news showed off the man’s highlights from 2005 all the way to now. His sign-off was in typical Reggie fashion; filled with Nintendo memes, puns, and references to his quotes.

He will be handing over the reins (or controller) to Doug Bowser. Yes, everyone is aware of the guy’s last name and the fact that he’s the new Nintendo of America president. That joke got old the moment the news broke.

Here’s a quote from Reggie’s farewell video to show that he cherished the time he was running the American division.

“For giving me a Mushroom Kingdom full of incredible memories that I will never forget. I’ve been honoured to be included as part of your family. Just as you understand that Nintendo always tries to put smiles on faces… well, you put thousands of smiles on mine.”

The internet was, of course, emotional about his retirement. We’ll end this segment with these messages. Stay tuned for our favourite Reggie Fils-Aimé moments; it’s coming.
