A look at Reggie’s retirement gifts
Posted on April 18, 2019 by Brian(@NE_Brian) in General Nintendo, News
Update (4/18): We’ve updated this post with another one of Reggie’s retirement gifts.
Original (4/17): As the former Nintendo of America president, Reggie Fils-Aime was a big deal. He had plenty of respect inside the company, and was also beloved by fans.
Reggie might have retired from Nintendo, but he was most definitely sent off in style. A number of lovely gifts were sent his way, including a working Virtual Boy, art from Retro Studios, a “notebook for names taken,” “a plastic ass to kick,” a book of notes from employees, a Mario statue, and a special art piece.
Here’s a look:

Last of my retirement events was last night. Received some wonderful gifts and souvenirs. Yes, that is a working Virtual Boy. Art from Retro Studios. Notebook for names taken. A plastic ass to kick. A book of notes from employees. And a Mario statue. End of an era. pic.twitter.com/mrOVL1ANPO
