Here’s the roundup:

At the 2018 GeekWire Summit in Seattle earlier today, Reggie Fils-Aime stopped by. The Nintendo of America president addressed the Wii U’s failures, but also spoke about how it eventually paved the way for Switch.

Speaking about the Wii U, Reggie stated:

Where’s the last place you’d expect Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime to show up? How about in a Seattle Police Department lip sync challenge? Yes, that has actually happened.

Reggie makes a quick cameo appearance in the video below. If you’re having trouble seeing him, look around the 2:30 mark.

At the start of 2018, Nintendo announced a partnership with Illumination for a new Mario movie. Chris Meledandri is a producer on the project, as is Shigeru Miyamoto.

The movie is likely early on in production, so it makes sense that details surrounding it are mostly unknown. But Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime did comment on the film in an interview with IGN, stating that it’s intended to appeal to Mario fans as well as newcomers.

Game Informer has published its own interview with Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime at E3. The two sides chatted about amiibo, future announcement, what lies ahead for the “Classics” brand (like the NES/SNES Classic Edition), and more.

We’ve picked out some of the notable excerpts from the interview below. You can read the full discussion on Game Informer here.

Nintendo posted a short little video on its Twitter account today promoting Mario Tennis Aces. The company’s Reggie Fils-Aime, Shigeru Miyamoto, and Shinya Takahashi gave the sports game a spin. Check out the video below.


If there’s one character fans have been rallying to be made a playable character in Smash Bros. Ultimate as of late, that’d be Waluigi. After the Switch title was revealed at E3 a couple of weeks ago, some fans were very vocal in expressing their disappointment that he won’t be on the roster. Rather than being playable, Waluigi is an Assist Trophy once again.

Vice caught up with Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime and asked him about the situation. Here’s an exchange between the two sides:

Switch was practically built with multiplayer in mind. The Joy-Con themselves can be detached from the main unit so that they can be shared with another person, allowing for gaming sessions with friends anywhere.

Nintendo has also put out quite a few multiplayer-focused Switch games over the past year or so. We’ve seen the likes of ARMS, Splatoon 2, and Mario Tennis Aces with Super Mario Party and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate to follow later in the year.

At every E3 – or any major Nintendo event for that matter – many fans hope to see the announcement of games like Animal Crossing for Switch or the western release of Mother 3. There still wasn’t news on either of these last week, but Nintendo is definitely aware of the interest.

IGN spoke with Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime at E3. As a blanket statement regarding announcements for the company’s franchises, Reggie reiterated that information will be shared “close to its launch date versus teasing people for years on end.”
