Former Nintendo Boss Reggie Fils-Aime Is (Probably) Writing A Book

In a recent interview, the former president of Nintendo of America Reggie Fils-Aime said that he's currently working on several creative projects, including a possible book.


Former Nintendo executive Reggie Fils-Aime might have retired from his most famous post, but he still has plenty of stories to share. In a recent interview with Gamertag Radio, Fils-Aime suggested that he's working on multiple "creative projects" that capture his time in the industry, including a possible book.

"I have a number of creative projects going on," Fils-Aime said. "I am putting pen to paper and capturing thoughts and also thinking about podcasts...We did that as a fundraiser for the charity, and that worked out really well. So I absolutely see myself doing something in the creative space, but I've got no title to announce here today, I've got no details to share, but I've been asked by many people to capture these ideas, and I've begun that process."

In the same interview, Fils-Aime said that the idea of "console wars" in gaming is mostly illusory, especially on the business side. He pointed out that all of the leaders of the major game companies come together every quarter to meet with the Entertainment Software Association, and they discuss what's best for gaming. He said he was disappointed by the transformation of E3 into a digital-only event, though he recognizes that it's necessary due to the pandemic. He also called the current level of diversity and representation in the gaming business "woefully inadequate."
