I've signed the petition. It's currently at about 3500 of what will likely become 10 million total signatures. You should all obviously sign this petition immediately.
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.
The Regginator himself has acknowledged that he is open to the idea of him being in the games, responding to a tweet by user @taco_belmont, but Masahiro Sakurai (the games' director) would first need to approve the new character.
Please sign this petition and help us boost Sakurai and his team to go ahead with Reggie's inclusion in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U!
To raise awareness about this, please use the hashtag #ReggieForSmashBros and Tweet to @Sora_Sakurai to let him know about this petition. Also Tweet to @NintendoOfAmerica, @NintendoEurope, and @NintendoUK ; and post about this on Miiverse to prove to Nintendo that Reggie deserves a spot on the roster.
