“Hi Nintendo Fans, It’s Reggie.”

By Ishaan . June 6, 2013 . 4:00pm

Nintendo have shared a teaser for their E3 content that they’ll be streaming on their YouTube channel during E3 week. Don’t get too excited—it’s just a video of Reggie asking you to tune in during E3.



Nintendo’s actual E3 news will begin at 7am PST on June 11th, with their E3 Nintendo Direct, which will be showcasing Wii U games, including a debut trailer for the new Smash Bros. and more.


Fix: Whoops! Nintendo Direct timing corrected. We accidentally switched the date and time.

    Ever since Iwata started his Nintendo Directs, it seems like nobody cares about Reggie anymore, aside from the occasional meme reference. He must feel lonely.

    • Longsun_Zhao

      I still love my little Reg.

      • Rytan

        He’s my Aniki. It’s always good to hear from him.

  • Manzoku

    Thank you, based Reggie.


    Offtopic; Reggie reminds me of Veggies.

  • mojack411

    Wait June 7th?! I thought the ND was on the 11th? I love being wrong!

    edit: It is on the 11th. How dare you get my hopes up!

  • Spider-Man

    This sort of creeped me out.

    • KnifeAndFork
      • GameTaco

        That’s our Reggie! *laugh track*

    • Ethan_Twain

      Reggie has always had a semi-creepy vibe going on. Like he’s almost completely masked his real personality with the corporate spokesman mask, but occasionally there’s just a tiny slip that suggests underneath the facade he’s a serial killer.

      At this point it’s just part of the appeal. I mean, if he was a serial killer we’d have found out by now, right? …right?

      • He could also be a robot from the future, or an alien wearing human skin (from the same planet as Tomonobu Itagaki). We can’t discount these possibilities.

        • ronin4life

          I still think he is a Robot puppet operated by Purple Pikmin.

      • J_Joestar

        somehow that game me a mental image of Jack Nicholson in the Shining, except rather than “Here’s Johnny!” it was the title instead.

        • Reggie hacks open the door and sticks his face inside, his hair unkempt, his left eye slightly off-center, with an unsettlingly contented grin on his face. As Mrs. Fils-Aime shrieks an unholy shriek and clutches the great white wall, which cannot save her, Reggie opens his mouth and utters, in his usual business monotone:

          “Hi, Nintendo fan. It’s me. Reggie.”

  • Brion Valkerion

    … im sure Neogaf has blown up with gifs of this already.

  • Tyler Harwood Simpson

    Reggie wants to read Youtube comments? Uh-oh.

  • kylehyde

    I think that the date and hour is switched

  • Longsun_Zhao

    “Don’t get too excited—it’s just a video of Reggie asking you to tune in during E3.”

    this is enough to excite me.


    • 愛憎

      The most exciting part was when he mentioned that he’ll be watching the comments. I hope Reggie-senpai notices me!!

  • DesmaX

    My body is ready

  • TiredOfMyOldUsername

    Ishaan you got it wrong, it’s 7am on the 11th not 11am on the 7th :P

    • Yeah, sorry–fixed! Thanks to everyone that alerted me to this!

  • MrSirFeatherFang

    The Regginator has been reading and listening to your comments and
    questions and we created this video to get you all the info you need
    about our E3 activities this year. Take a look!

    This is what it says on the facebook post lol
    Looking forward to how they will be at E3.

  • GibbRS

    Doh, and here I thought Reggie was going to announce Fatal Frame V coming to the Wii U and coming to the states.

    Maybe I missed it. **rewatches video**

  • MrRobbyM

    Hi Reggie. Bye Reggie.

    That said, Nintendo is going to rock this year’s E3.

    • I am looking to Sony’s as well.

  • Reggie needs more face time for Nintendo. Rarely see the guy

    • TheExile285

      *looks at other article comments*

      yeah, i can see why, lol.

      He doesn’t seem creepy me but I feel like he should smile more.

  • KnifeAndFork

    uh…..hi…..Reggie…. >_>

  • HerosLight

    Hi Reggie, I hope you get to speak on Nintendo Direct conference in June 11th and not just Iwata 95% of the times!

    Not that I don’t dislike Iwata, but you need more spotlight!

    • Sardorim

      Reggie shares the Nintendo spotlight with Iwata and is respectful as he waits his turn. After all Reggie only needs a mere picture of him to get everyone all hot and bothered. His voice? That may be too much sexy at once for some.

  • AuraGuyChris

    Ew, get rid of that hideous Ash figure in the background. It doesn’t deserve to stand next to Mario and Pikachu.

  • scratchbach

    Best headline ever.

  • Haseyo

    I don’t care what people say. Reggie is my favorite spokesperson from Nintendo. He hypes me up for games like no other.

    Our bodies are ready.

  • Go2hell66

    So who else imagined reggie saying that headline in the creepiest voice?

  • I would not let Reggie into my house on a dark and stormy night.

    • 愛憎

      I laughed at this, but I can’t rightly upvote you because I couldn’t turn down a Reggie in peril.

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    oh hhh yeahhhhh

    • 愛憎

      Your posts are usually fantastic. Thank you.

  • Dagobert


    • Solomon_Kano

      Will you be appearing at E3, too… Pac?

      • Dagobert

        Watch out for Sony’s press conference. Holographic shiz… *hint*

  • CirnoLakes

    Hi Nintendo fans, it’s Reggie.

    Prepare your bodies.

  • Solomon_Kano

    My body is Reggie, er, ready.

  • Kelohmello

    Hi Reggie, it’s Nintendo Fans.

  • chroma816

    My body’s not Reggie!


  • Please, don’t do stuff like Microsoft. Stay nice with us.

  • Krisi92

    The very first starter Pokémon TCG deck and the “Bodyguard” deck are behind Reggie on the shelf. Could this be a reference to a new Pokémon TCG for the 3DS? Probably not, but that would be awesome.

  • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

    Hi Reggie, My body is ready.^_^

  • Redsumo

    Who would’ve thought a black man from the Bronx would be the president of Nintendo of America! Makes me proud!

  • Furry Fox Jet Pilot

    If Namco Bandai is
    involved, they should definitely add some fighter pilots from the Ace Combat
    series as characters, with their fighter jets as Final Smash attacks, if
    those are still in the game. They should also add stages from Ace
    Combat, where you fight on top of planes as they fight their way through
    battlefields, or even a stage that takes place on top of the Arkbird
    spacecraft from Ace Combat 5 and a stage that takes place on the SOLG
    satellite that is crashing down through the atmosphere. I would also
    love to see Krystal from Starfox and Tails from Sonic the Hedgehog in
    the game. But they have to include at least
    one Ace Combat character, dammit, that’s one of Namco Bandai’s biggest
    and obviously their best. Ace Combat needs to be represented in this
    next Smash Bros., so all Ace Combat fans, spread the word and comment on
    every single Smash Bros. 4 article you can find, suggest it to the
    developers, even get in touch with Project Aces and share the idea with

Video game stories from other sites on the web. These links leave Siliconera.
