Nintendo’s Reggie acknowledges that the fans love him

Wii U is out in America, and Reggie is promoting that.

“My Body is Ready” is a phrase you normally associate with Nintendo’s Reggie, because duh, he said it. Reggie knows he’s a superstar and in an interview with MTV Multiplayer, he had a lot of things to say about his fame and his journey at Nintendo where he was hired nine years ago.

“It’s very gratifying. It wasn’t planned. When I was hired almost nine years ago, it wasn’t planned that I would play the role that I’m playing, but I think the fans recognize that I play our games,” he said.

“They recognize that I’m passionate about our company. They recognized that I have a point of view, and I articulate that point of view, and I think that’s what they value. It’s a very humbling role, and it really makes it special on a night like tonight.”

He has his limitations though, and he knows it. He can’t quite pull off something like Iwata Asks because he doesn’t quite have the background knowledge of a developer. After all he’s the one who called Batman: Arkham City Armored Edition completely unique.

“We have talked about it, and what I will tell you is that it’s important that if we ever do a Reggie Asks that it be on a topic that makes sense. Iwata Asks works because of Mr. Iwata’s background as a game developer himself, so he’s able to have an informed conversation with other developers, and his own curiosity is what drives that conversation,” he said.

“So, certainly if there’s a topic where I have passion and I have curiosity and I have an innate background in, that’s probably the topic that will lead to a Reggie Asks.”

Thanks, VG247.
