As fans will know by now, Reggie Fils-Aimé stepped down as Nintendo of America’s president earlier in April – with many bemoaning that he probably won’t make another public appearance in the world of gaming. Well, it looks like that won’t be the case at this year’s Game Awards on 12 December 2019!
The Game Awards official Twitter has officially revealed that Reggie will be returning as one of the show’s presenters, instead! For now, it is unknown how much of the show he will be presenting, but we know that other guest stars such as Muppet characters Dr. Bunsen Honeydew and Beaker will be joining him.
