Here is something that is bound to make Nintendo fans smile. It’s no secret that Super Smash Bros is already in development to the Wii U, with fans eagerly awaiting the next big character reveal after seeing the likes of Megaman confirmed. This week, we have news of a petition that is doing the rounds, asking for none other than Reggie Fils-Aime to be included as a playable character.
Reggie has become a fan favorite over the years, just do a search for Reggie Fils-Aime memes and you’ll get an idea why. It seems that Nintendo’s President of America is more than happy to be associated with the memes too, as you’ll often hear him make frequent references to his infamous ‘my body is ready’ quote that started everything off.
Such is his popularity, you can see a petition that has been set up over at Change.org, asking for the big man to be included in the next Smash Bros game. At the moment, we see an impressive 15,000+ signatures acquired already so far so it’s clear that thousands of Wii U owners also want this to happen on a serious note.
The petition is addressed to Smash Bros creator Masahiro Sakurai, but the interesting thing here is that Reggie has even accepted fan invitation to become a playable character. He answered this very question below, stating that it will be up to Mr Sakurai to make it happen, but if it does – his body will always be ready.
It’s great stuff, and we would love to see it happen. We would even go as far to say that a significant amount of Super Smash Bros sales on the Wii U could be solely down to Reggie’s appearance, if he ever makes it into the game. Perhaps it is something that can be done with regards to DLC.
What are your thoughts on this crazy idea – would you like to see Reggie in the game or not? Tell us what his move set should be below.
