Well, we weren’t expecting this one. Reggie Fils-Aimé has opened his very own Twitter account, entering the world of social media for the first time as he leaves the role of Nintendo of America President behind.
Yes, if you’ve somehow missed the news, the beloved Regginator has stepped down from his role at Nintendo today, handing over the keys to Doug Bowser. It was unclear whether or not Nintendo would mention Reggie’s departure for one final time, but it seems he’s taken things into his own hands.
Here’s his first tweet:
As this article goes live, the account has been active for just over 15 minutes. In that time, he’s already gained over 15,000 followers and this will no doubt grow at a tremendous rate over the next few days.
We have no idea what Reggie plans to do with this account, and whether or not it will be related to Nintendo, but we’re glad that he’ll be keeping fans updated in one way or another. His bio reads:
Retired President/COO @NintendoAmerica. Active business provocateur.
