As you probably already know by now, Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aimé is set to retire from his position this April. Reggie has become such a huge part of the company over the last 15 years that it’s hard to imagine Nintendo without him, and his enthusiasm for the role, appreciation of his position and the fans, and pure personality have left a huge impact on the industry.
To celebrate and thank the ‘Regginator’ for the good times over the years, YouTube user lookfishart has created a speed drawing video, showing the creation of an art piece which acts as a tribute to the man himself. We thought the epic music playing in the background might have been a bit much at first, but being reminded of his video highlights throughout the clip reminded us that he really has generated that amount of love and respect from fans.
It might be time for him to move on, but he’ll definitely be missed. Check out the video for yourself below.
