You can race Reggie himself from 4-5:30 Pacific online, or meet him at McDonalds!

As what could be surmised to be a Christmas-time gift to his loyal fanbase, Nintendo of America's Vice President of Sales & Marketing Reginald Fils-Aime will appear at the Bellevue Square McDonalds in Bellvue, Washington on Monday, December 19th.

What's more, he will be playing Mario Kart DS in Worldwide mode (as NOA_Reggie), so that he may take names globally.

Nintendo will also have Nintendo DS systems available for those who swing by and want to play. They even have two DS systems to give away: one autographed by Reggie and the other by Fall Out Boy (from the Nintendo Fusion Tour).

All hail the Regginator.

Special thanks to UncleBob for the tip.

I wonder if Gates will drop by?

OMFG I am so going to be playing then.

I can't wait to get my ass kicked by Reggie.

I live within 30 minutes of Bellevue square! What would I say to the Reggienator? Even if I don't talk to him, I can at least see him in person, which would rock.

If people keep talking to him how will have enough time to race?

yeah, I forsee few people playing online with Reggie (even if he IS playing online). Perhaps he'll be meeting folks live after the online session?

Yay, I'm famous!

So Reggie only plays MKDS online for promotional events?

or perhaps he just plays under a different name like everyone else.

Reggie will lap you before you've even done a lap. Heck, before HE'S even done a lap.

I want Reggie to do a worldwide tour!

Ok ok so it's 16 hours time difference. This means 8:30am Tuesday. Oh FFS I'll be at work!

ssj4_androidDecember 17, 2005

Yeah, is there anything preventing us from changing our names to NOA_Reggie?

KDR_11kDecember 17, 2005

Isn't there a name filter that prevents users from naming themselves after Nintendo employees?

"Yeah, is there anything preventing us from changing our names to NOA_Reggie?"

Yes, THE FEAR OF THE REGGIE-GOD OMIGHTY BUTT KICKING or they (I think) could ban your ds from the wfc.

J Allard said that he prefers the DS to the PSP so I wouldn't be surprised if he maybe makes a studio for developing DS games or coaxes Microsoft into it. Rare is already said its well underway with DS projects and it is owned by Microsoft, and there were rumbling a few months ago that there was a Halo handheld game being made.....hmmmmm
