In an interview with IGN during last weeks GDC, Reggie Fils-Aime answered a number of questions about the condition of the Wii.  He dodged the tough questions by talking of how well the Wii has already sold, reminding us that the console sold over 35 million units in North America alone. He also let us know that Skyward Sword was still on its way, saying that the game will be innovative and help ...

Nintendo 3DS press conference on January 19th

In less than four weeks, Nintendo will be hosting a press event in New York City. There will be hands on demos and a presentation by Reggie. I think it’s safe to assume we’ll finally be given a launch date and pricing information. Hopefully it’ll be close to or even before the Japanese release date of February 26th, but also hopefully less than the nearly $300 price tag (once you...

3DS might not launch in 2011, Reggie Mistaken?

According to “sources” close to “Nintendo” at “Kotaku,” Nintendo President Reggie Fils-Aime may have been “mistaken” when he told Jimmy Fallon that the 3DS would be launching “Next Year.” Did Reggie forget to use the word “in” before “next year,” to cover his bases?  Maybe. Was the NOA President misinformed about ...

Nintendo president of America Reggie Fils-Aime has officially weighed in on the recently announced 3DS portable. His comments, while far from surprising given the uncharacteristic Nintendo of Japan early reveal last month, gave further credence to the belief that the device will be much different than anything Nintendo’s put forth in the space before. In a recent interview with BusinessWeek,...

Reggie still as tough as Chuck Norris

This week I stumbled upon this old blog post I wrote, and I still chuckle while reading it. “Reggie Fils-Aime does not hunt because the word hunting infers the probability of failure. Reggie Fils-Aime goes killing.” “When the Boogeyman goes to sleep every night he checks his closet for Reggie Fils-Aime.” “The chief export of Reggie Fils-Aime is pain.” “Whe...

Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aimes is a class act

There are many reason why Reggie is so well-regarded in the gaming community, and that includes both gamer and developer types. His knack for a kick ass quote. His presentation style. His gravitas. This recent interview, over at Forbes, is yet another reason.

Do you really want a HD Nintendo System? I mean honestly, who wouldn’t want to play a Zelda game in HD!

Recently Reggie Fils-Amie has gone on the record to talk about the recent speculation about Wii HD happening, and about the future of Nintendo in general. “[The] next step for Nintendo in terms of home consoles will not be simply to make it HD, but to add more and more capability and we’ll do that when we totally tapped out all of the experiences for the existing Wii and we are nowhere nea...

Reggie avoids giving Zelda Wii a 2010 release

This week’s episode of GameTrailers TV was all about Nintendo’s upcoming software lineup. While confirming a 2010 release for Metroid other M, and Super Mario Galaxy 2, Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime wouldn’t budge on Zelda Wii launch dates. “We haven’t committed to Zelda in 2010…We’ll have to see how that continues to develop.” Not a...
