Needless to say, gamers across the world were saddened by his sudden departure, but he will be remembered for his personality and great sense of humor.

After fifteen wonderful years of Nintendo memories, Reggie will be stepping down from position in April. Doug Bowser, the former senior vice president of sales and marketing, will be stepping in to fulfill Reggie’s shoes. Before he goes, Reggie wants to thank us for these past years.

A heartfelt goodbye, no? Even though he is leaving the gaming industry, he assures us that his body will always be ready. He was the king of memes and the face of Nintendo that we all recognized and loved.

Doug Bowser, while we have not seen much of him, seems to be carrying the same positive energy that Reggie did. Just take a look at this picture he posted when he was officially warmed into his new position.

Aw, what a nice welcome! Wait a minute, is that Mario and Luigi in the background? Are they… tied up? Oh no! Needless to say, Mr. Bowser is taking his role very seriously and we cannot wait to see how he will do in the next coming years.

Nintendo is in a rather comfortable position right now, with how well the Switch is performing. We are sure that Nintendo of America is in good hands, and we are excited for the future.
