Nintendos Reggie Fils-Aime retires (and Bowser claims the castle)

Reggie Fils-Aime is retiring after more than a decade spent as president of Nintendo of America. His career spanned many console generations, starting with the troubled Gamecube and ending with the fabulously successful Switch. Reggie will be succeeded by Doug Bowser, who has worked under him for the last four years.
In a statement provided by Nintendo, Reggie (who frequently went by his first name in familiar fashion) offered the following farewell:
Nintendo owns a part of my heart forever. Its a part that is filled with gratitude for the incredibly talented people Ive worked with, for the opportunity to represent such a wonderful brand, and most of all, to feel like a member of the worlds most positive and enduring gamer community. As I look forward to departing in both good health and good humor, this is not game over for me, but instead leveling up to more time with my wife, family and friends.
In addition, he posted a video farewell on Twitter:

Nintendo fans, Reggie has a message for all of you. Please take a look.
