Petition Urges Nintendo to Make Reggie Fils-Aime a Playable Character in Super Smash Bros.

July 30, 2013 -

There's a petition for everything it seems. For example, there's currently a petition on to make playable Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aime in the upcoming Super Smash Bros. game for Wii U and 3DS. The petition directed at game producer Sora Sakurai and Nintendo has already garnered 7,752 supporters as of this writing. Here's a bit from the petition appeal:

"Reggie Fils-Aime, president and COO of Nintendo of America, is very popular in the gaming world, and he shot to fame in E3 2004 with his opening line: 'My name is Reggie. I'm about kickin' ass, I'm about takin' names, and we're about makin' games.' His humorous quotes and theatrical antics have made him into a gaming celebrity.

Many Nintendo fans have pleaded for Reggie to be in the upcoming Super Smash Bros. games and he would be a unique character. He could use Nintendo controllers and characters to his advantage as attacks.

In a video that recently ran on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, Fils-Aime was asked whether he would be available as a playable character in the game.

"Great question," said Fils-Aime. "You have to ask that to Mr. Sakurai. He's the producer of the game, it's his game. But if he wants, my body is ready."

Ehh, I doubt (and sincerely hope in that doubt) that this will get any positive response from HAL. One thing Nintendo has been very good about is keeping the business side of the company away from the games.

Just have Mii as a playable character.  That way, you can fight with anyone you want: you, Reggie, your mom, my mom, James' mom or Admiral Ackbar.
