Thanks for the memories
It's almost Reggie Fils-Aim's last day at Nintendo. In February, the much-loved President of Nintendo of America announced that he should retire on April 15, 2019. Nintendo could – and should – send him in style.
Although not officially confirmed by Nintendo, Gaming Intel reports that its sources say Nintendo Direct is scheduled for later this week. It will probably take place on Thursday, April 11th. It is just a few days before Fils-Aime magazine and current senior VP of sales and marketing Doug Bowser takes over.
We don't even have super good guesses about what this currently hypothetical Direct can focus on. Persona s Joker comes to Super Smash Bros Ultimate sometime soon, and this may be an opportunity for a release date. Otherwise, Pokémon : Sword and Shield Animal Crossing for Switch, or Luigi's Mansion 3 are underway .
Main, though: If this Direct is going to pass, it will include a hearty farewell from one of the most influential and admired figures of the gaming industry. Fils-Aime will almost certainly thank everyone for making his appointment at Nintendo so great. I hope Direct happens because it feels like we as an audience need a chance to collectively say thank you back.
