Nintendo of America COO Reggie Fils-Aime has responded to a selection of Twitter questions in a Late Night with Jimmy Fallon web-exclusive. The most interesting question was whether or not he would appear as an unlockable playable character in either the Wii U or 3DS versions of Smash Brothers.
“The big question, whether I am going to be a playable character in Smash Brothers” Fils-Aime said. “You have to ask Mr. Sakurai, he’s the producer of the game, its his game. But if he wants, my body is ready.”
In a general fun-loving answer Fils-Aime openly stated “his body was ready” for an appearance in Smash Brothers, if producer Sora Sakurai wanted to include him in the game.
Nintendo fans have been pushing for Reggie’s inclusion in the new Smash Brothers titles, creating a petition for his addition to the roster which has been signed over 28,000 times.
