Former President of Nintendo of America Reggie Fils-Aime will be presenting at The Game Awards confirming his body is ready.

The man, the myth, the legend, Reggie Fils-Aime, will be at this year’s Game Awards as a presenter.

As tweeted by The Game Awards’ producer and host Geoff Keighley, the former Nintendo of America President will be a presenter at the show. What exactly he will be presenting exactly is unknown. Previously, he has presented some reveals but that may not be the case since he is retired. Regardless, it is great to see him back at the show, and I’m sure he will get a huge pop when he comes out.

As you could have gathered from what was previously stated, this isn’t Reggie’s first Game Awards. In 2015, the now-retired President paid tribute to the late Satoru Iwata. In 2016, he introduced some new footage from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Maybe his most memorable appearance was last year, when Reggie along with Xbox’s Phil Spencer and former SIE Worldwide Studios chairman Shawn Layden got on stage, bringing the three “competitors” together on stage for the first time.


As mentioned, Reggie Fils-Aime was previously the President of Nintendo of America before Doug Bowser took over. He’s also known for some of his silly antics on stage which inevitably became hilarious memes. Personally, I like when he told HungryBox he was going to kick his ass in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U. And of course, who could forget when Reggie’s body was ready?

The Game Awards will air on Thursday, December 12 at 8:30 PM PT/5:30 PM PT and can be streamed on most social media and streaming platforms. You can check out all of the award categories and nominees right now. You can also cast your vote for each category.
