Reggie Fils-Aime

You never quite know what you’ll get out of Nintendo from E3. A few years ago, the big N ditched conferences on stage in favor of Digital Events. In 2016, they scrapped its usual pre-recorded presentation entirely and had Zelda: Breath of the Wild as its only playable game.

So what’s in store for this year? Going off of a new statement from Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime, who recently spoke with Fox News, fans can expect “a big E3”. In addition to games for Switch, Nintendo will be showing what it has in store for 3DS.

Reggie’s full words:

Fox News has a new interview up with Reggie Fils-Aime, president of Nintendo of America. Reggie spoke about his early days of playing Nintendo games starting with the SNES, how the gaming industry can be unpredictable, the early reaction to Switch, and more. View the full interview below.

Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime is still showing up at various places for interviews. Recently, he stopped by Fox Business to chat about Switch and show off the system. While he touches on many of the same topics we’ve heard before, it’s almost worth a watch just for the awkward play of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime stopped by CBS This Morning to promote Switch and chat about the new platform. For the most part, we’ve heard the questions and answers in previous interviews.

At one point, one of the show’s hosts brings up how Link is hot, which Reggie says is true. He then says that there are more girl gamers out there, and Nintendo takes pride in leading the way on that front. Switch is also intended to appeal to a wide demographic – anyone from the age of 5 to 95, Reggie said.

Here’s the full interview:

Yesterday, TIME posted a new interview with Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime. Reggie was finally asked about two concerns surrounding Switch – issues with the Joy-Con syncing and the dock scratching the screen. Aside from that, he also commented on availability for the standalone dock.

A few days ago, Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime confirmed that Switch’s first 2-day sales in the Americas were the best for any Nintendo system in history. The trend continues five days in for the console.

During his new interview with Katie Linendoll, Reggie said the following about Switch sales:

“So we announced the first two days, so now we have data for the US five days in. Continues to be the best-selling system we’ve ever had in the United States. And I’ve launched five systems now with Nintendo, and by far this is the most remarkable given the pace of sales, given what’s happening on the software front – obviously Legend of Zelda – so this is an amazing time for us.”

Speaking of Zelda, he said the new entry is “killing it” in Japan. That’s important to note since the series has always done well in the west, but may not have always caught on in Nintendo’s native territory – especially as of late.

Katie Linendoll interviewed Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime through a Facebook live stream a short while ago. Reggie weighed in on Switch, 3DS, and more during the talk. For the full recording, continue on below.


Right now, Switch doesn’t offer any video apps. The likes of Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon currently aren’t offered on the system. However, it’s only a matter of time before that changes.

In an interview with The Washington Post, Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime stated that the company is talking with the aforementioned video providers about supporting Switch. Their apps “will come in time,” according to Reggie.

He said:

“What I would say is this: We built the Nintendo Switch to be a world-class gaming device, meaning we want you first and foremost to play games on the system and have an incredibly fun experience.

We’re talking to a range of companies about other services, companies like Netflix, Hulu, Amazon — things that will come in time. In our view, these are not differentiators. What differentiates us is the way you play with the Nintendo Switch and what you can play. And that will continue to be our focus into the future as we continue driving this platform.”


President of Nintendo America Reggie Fils-Aimé has written a moving thank-you letter to all Nintendo fans in order to celebrate the launch day of Switch. Additionally, he reminds us that this will be a great year for the new console because of all the new titles that we can look forward to.
