If there’s one missed opportunity (of many) on the Playstation side of the SSB/PSAS battle, it’s that Kevin Butler (or at least Kaz Hirai) wasn’t a playable character. With Nintendo, there are many popular personalities that make up the company we know today. Chief among them being Nintendo of America’s President, Reggie Fils-Aime. How cool/weird would it be to play as Reggie in the next Smash Bros.? Well, a Petition has surfaced asking for just that.
According to the petition, Twitter user taco_belmont asked the NoA president if he would be a playable character in SSB4. Reggie answered, “You have to ask that to Mr. Sakurai. He’s the producer of the game, it’s his game. But if he wants, my body is ready.” As of this writing, the petition has garnered 8,728 signatures. The petition writer hops to raise awareness by getting #ReggieForSmashBros trending. If he does make it in, here’s a suggestion for his Final Smash. Think about it Nintendo.
