It is said Reggie only retired to make time to play the only copy of English Mother 3.

Mother 3 has already been released in exactly the way it needed to be. As a fan-translation done with no censorship.

I clicked this video because I *had* to know how to pronounce his last name! I've always just known him as Reggie until he quit Nintendo recently, and now I'm like "oh, duh! He has a surname! Fills Aim? Tf?"

First it was Frank (TvFilthyFrank), now Reggie? These years have been so sad. But they're both happy now...
RedShadow Hace 25 días
I am glad that he retired, never liked the smug arshole anyway. Why do you ask anyone remember when a SSB player challenged Reggie to a super smash bros fight and that he would need a 1 year for preparing? Well a year goes by the same guy comes up and faces off Reggie. Reggie gets his ass handed to him on a silver platter and instead of taking his lumps and admit defeat like any good player should he goes about insulting the other gamer by comparing on what they both do and I quote, "... I spend 16 hours a day running a company, you spend 16 hours a day playing smash." Alright, asshole but those people that play the games are the ones helping to bring money to your company glad he retired wish he got fired would have made it oh so sweeter! Also side note hate me if you want, call me what you want I dont care. You dont act like a douche just because you lost in a smash bros match

So this means that on his final day in his position as president (April 15th), he is going to personally announce during a direct that Mother 3 is being released in North America?
YouTubular Hace 20 días
+ᵗʰᵉNight★Star I already have, and that brings up a great point: if you've already played the fan translation, why are you so worried about the censorship? So what if there is censorship, you can always go and play that version of the game. I think that doing so would be a great way to shed more light on a game that more people should know about.
ᵗʰᵉNight★Star Hace 20 días
No. Mother 3 should not be localized. Nintendo will have to censor it and nobody wants that. Mother 3 exists exactly as it should. Get the fan-translation and play it on your computer.

Did Reggie actually kicked the ass that he mentioned when he joined? I dont think that Nintendo had any huge successes during era. I remember wiiu's huge failure

Damn, I knew Reggie was amazing but I had no idea just how much amazing stuff he has done in his career even before Nintendo. I will certainly miss him but he definitely deserves a relaxing retirement.

I love Nintendo but never really liked Reggie. He always seemed prepotent and high-blown to me. Like he always looked from above. But that does not mean he's not a great guy, that was just my impression of him. :)

If only that were true they'd be in a much better state now. He seems like a very understanding and loyal man, or at the very least far more understanding and loyal than who's president of the US now. I don't think anyone takes the latter guy seriously.
