Farewell, Reggie Fils-Aimé!

More than just a corporate president and COO, Reggie Fils-Aimé has shown the heart and soul of a video game enthusiast, cheerful leader and dedicated friend to the Nintendo community.

In this supercut, we wanted to celebrate all of Reggie’s public moments that left us with smiles (and maybe a few tears) on our faces. Since 2003, he’s been hard at work, helping to give fans and families experiences we will never forget.

As “Nintendo” loosely translates to “Leave Luck to Heaven,” we are grateful that Reggie will be able to retire and spend time with his loved ones before that 1-up afterlife. With Satoru Iwata fondly remembered and now with Reggie having sweetly parted ways (and joined Twitter!), we wait to see how the new generation of Nintendo leadership becomes as memorable and fun-loving in the eyes of the community of millions who support the greatest games in the industry.

Fire Emblem: Three Houses Continues Trend Of Vocal Themes For Nintendo Games

Before the end of the Wii U era, it was rare for a Nintendo game to feature vocals in its prominent songs for its flagship games. The release of Fire Emblem: Three Houses in July will mark the fourth year in a row a landmark title will include singing in its main theme, of all places.

Vocal Nintendo songs have existed since the Nintendo GameCube. Captain Falcon had a theme song in F-Zero GX. The credits theme for Xenoblade Chronicles, “Beyond the Sky,” is an underrated gem of emotion, and one could argue that Zelda from Skyward Sword, K.K. Slider and the Squid Sisters had been singing all along before 2016.

That was the year when vocals finally started to appear for the masses, however. With the growing popularity of Fire Emblem, the Nintendo 3DS Fire Emblem Fates titles brought with them “Lost in Thoughts All Alone,” the main theme sung in both English and Japanese for those highly successful titles.

Marvel’s Cinematic Universe may have been the most ambitious crossover once upon a time, but I believe Super Smash Bros. Ultimate now takes the title for itself. The popular party fighting game is back once again, and this time everyone is here!

Is Super Smash Bros. Ultimate as strong as Incineroars ‘wrastling’, or as weak as Waluigi’s chances are to become a playable fighter? Find out in our review, after the break!

Smash here for the review!
