Reggie Fils-Aime jumped onto the scene way back in the Gamecube years and instantly became a hit personality. Heavily meme friendly, the man was a key part of Nintendo’s marketing for almost fifteen years. He left the company abruptly, but it seems he’s sticking close to the industry he was part of for so long as he joined a non-profit organization, the board of directors of the New York Videogame Critics Circle.

The non-profit is one that’s aimed at bringing together critics of various backgrounds and creating support communities around the industry. In a statement, Fils-Aime said he hoped to be able to use his now longstanding experience in the industry to help the organization, as well as it being close to his heart from growing up in the Bronx originally.

“Drawing from my years of experience in the gaming industry for having a big picture perspective, and from my roots as a kid from the Bronx, joining the New York Videogame Critics Circle board of directors feels like a natural fit,” Reggie Fils-Aime said in the statement. “I have an admiration for the work that the NYVGCC has accomplished in giving back to communities since its inception and can’t wait to jump in and contribute to the success of the organization.”

While there won’t be any “Is your body ready?” moments most likely for Reggie, seems he wants to stay close to the industry. Hopefully, he can accomplish what he wants and needs to in his new role. And who knows, he may pop up on another Direct. You just never know.
