Reggie Fils-Aimé, president and COO of Nintendo of America, is very popular in the gaming world, and he shot to fame in E3 2004 with his opening line: "My name is Reggie. I'm about kickin' ass, I'm about takin' names, and we're about makin' games." His humorous quotes and theatrical antics have made him into a gaming celebrity.
Many Nintendo fans have pleaded for Reggie to be in the upcoming Super Smash Bros. games and he would be a unique and interesting character. His attacks could involve various Nintendo characters, items and controllers.
The Regginator himself has acknowledged that he is open to the idea of him being in the games, responding to a tweet by Twitter user @taco_belmont, but Masahiro Sakurai (the games' director) would first need to approve the new character.
Sign this petition to help convince Sakurai and his team to go ahead with Reggie's inclusion in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U!
To raise awareness about this, use the hashtag #ReggieForSmashBros on Facebook and Twitter, and Tweet to @Sora_Sakurai to let him know about this petition. Also Tweet to @NintendoOfAmerica, @NintendoEurope, and @NintendoUK; and post about this on Miiverse to prove to Nintendo that Reggie deserves a spot on the roster.
