About a month ago, we learned the surprising news that Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aime is retiring next month. Reggie has been the face of Nintendo in the Americas for well over a decade (while also planning and executing marketing strategies behind the scenes), but his story goes back much further.
The latest episode of Did You Know Gaming digs deep into the history of the Regginator to explore his rise to power. The story starts with political upheaval in Haiti causing the future parents of Fils-Aime to flee to the United States, covers Reggie’s time working for companies like Pizza Hut and VH1, and looks at many of the key moments in his career at Nintendo. It’s well worth a watch for any fans of Nintendo or Reggie.
