Reggie shares another touching gift he received for his retirement

RIP Iwata


Reggie may have saved the best retirement gift for last. As you can see, Reggie received a custom Iwata amiibo from Nintendo's David Young. The amiibo was created by the amazing MissGandaKris, who has created some fantastic custom amiibo in the past. This is probably her best work yet, and that's saying a lot!

Retro's retirement gift to Reggie has fans looking for hidden clues

Hidden nods, or wishful thinking?

Reggie put up another tweet showcasing a number of retirement gifts he's received, including a piece of custom art from Retro Studios. It's that piece of art that has fans salivating at the thought of teases for things to come.

First up, we have the artwork for Samus. While the details are a bit iffy, it seems most fans can agree that the design of Samus is new. The head-portion seems to combine the visor from Other M, but the helmet of the Prime series. There's also a slight difference in the Arm Cannon below the elbow. Is this all just artistic license, or is there something more to it?

Moving on, there's also a mystery robot-like hand in the image. This is the one that's really confusing fans, as a specific point of origin can't seem to be nailed down. It doesn't help that the Mario statue is blocking the way either! There was some dicussion that the hand is from Metroid Prime: Federation Force, but that was quickly shot down for a number of reasons. That leaves us with no clear-cut explanation as to what it's from!

Last and least, people have noticed that the font in the image comes from Banjo-Kazooie. Some are hopeful that means something, but I wouldn't put much weight in that.

Well, Nintendo sleuths, what say you? Can you glean any information from this, or is everyone diving a bit too deep?

Thanks to KingBroly for the heads up!

Geoff Keighley gives Reggie Fils-Aime an amazing retirement poster

This is so bad-ass

Geoff Keighley has given Reggie Fils-Aime an amazing going away gift. Keighley had a special poster commissioned from wonderful artist Sam Spratt. I imagine that a lot of fans would love to have this poster as well. I know I'd order one right away!

Reggie leaves behind his Master Sword for the next hero

Passing the reins

Reggie can't take everything with him on his journey to retirement. In his most recent tweet, Reggie noted that his Master Sword display is staying behind at Nintendo for someone else to enjoy. I'm guessing Doug Bowser is the one who get's to wield the sword now!

Reggie reaches out to Nintendo fan who achieved Eagle Scout status

That Reggie is a class act

Nintendo really does seem to go out of their way for their fans. We all have our gripes about some decisions the company makes, but it's hard to argue that Nintendo isn't always trying to put some smiles on faces. That doesn't just go for the games they put out, but also the fans who contact them.

Redditor Link101700 is a lifelong Nintendo fan, and he also happens to be a newly-recognized Eagle scout. He reached out Nintendo to share news of both details in his life, and believe it or not, Nintendo responded. Not only that, but Reggie himself got involved with the response! I'm sure Reggie is more than happy to respond to letters like this while he still has time left at the company.

The Rock comments on Reggie's departure from Nintendo, thanks him for 'creating fun'



Okay, I need to know about this connection. How the hell does The Rock know Reggie Fils-Aime?! When did these two meet up?! Are they related somehow, or is this just a work thing? This is two of my favorite hobbies converging! I definitely need some explanation on this!
