Yes. It very much is. Reggie has been an absolute industry icon since what feels like the dawn of time. He has been at Nintendo since 2003 and has become a staple of the company, recognisable alongside legends such as Miyamoto and Iwata. He was huge in the DS and Wii era and has been instrumental in Nintendo returning to the forefront of gaming with the Nintendo Switch. The man we all know and love is about to retire, let’s start with a reminder of his highlights:

Reggie retires on this date.
It’s all coming together. Like the great Chibi Robo fire of whatever year that was (2018?). Nintendo has offered us up the clues that we need to get excited for a Direct in the very near future. There’s also Smash 3.0 and Joker and Fire Emblem and many more projects to get news on (May is looking a little bare on Switch, don’t you think?). I think we’re about to get a Nintendo Direct. I think Reggie’s retirement is going to be a genuinely heartbreaking gaming moment. He has given us Nintendo fans some incredible memories and it only seems fitting that we get just a few more before his final farewell to the Nintendo fandom.
