Reggie In Smash Bros. 4? Yes, Please! [SS Opinions #1]

So there’s been a little thing going around the internet that people want to see an interesting new character join the Smash Bros. roster. And it’s not someone you’d outright expect, either. It’s the Nintendo of America COO Reggie Fils-Amie. And people are trying to make it happen. One person recently tweeted about wanting Reggie in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS, saying that Masahiro Sakurai, director of the games and creator of the franchise, would consider putting the NOA president in if a petition they started reached 100,000 signatures.

Now I personally think that this is a fantastic idea. I think Reggie is an awesome guy, and his “My Body Is Ready” comment during his Wii Fit game demo at E3 2007 became an internet meme, earning a remix that also went viral. There are so many possibilities for designing his character’s moves, and if his Final Smash was a tribute to his famous line, I think I would overload on the sheer awesomeness of it. And the fact that the idea has been tossed around and is even being considered is enough to get people like me hyped for what this next installment in the series will bring to the table. It looks like we’ll have to wait and see if he makes the cut, but if he does, I can guarantee you…
