The upcoming book by Reggie Fils-Aimé, Disrupting the Game: From the Bronx to the Top of Nintendois just a few weeks away, and we’re excited to read the story of Nintendo and gaming’s most well-known president.
To say Reggie has inspired thousands is an understatement. He revitalized Nintendo and brought many new eyes and faces to gaming as new fans brought controllers or developers, publishers, QA testers, etc. to the industry because of his work. Many of us wouldn’t love Nintendo games so much without its enthusiasm. He also has a bloody good legacy of memes behind him, and we were wondering if the book will cover any of those.
Well, we have some potentially good news for you! Ahead of the book’s release, the reggienator – who also speaks the audiobook himself – has revealed that he and Game Awards and Summer Game Fest host Geoff Keighley have met for a chat, which is included as part of the audiobook will be bonus content.
This chat should reveal some industry secrets and information about the couple’s friendship over the years as they share industry stories. In the intro Reggie shared in the tweet above, he warmly introduces Geoff as the two engage in friendly conversation before the meme topic comes up very briefly at the end of the clip.
Oh, come on you teaser! How could you dangle that carrot in front of us like that? Well, we assume that’s marketing for you. We need to know what memes the couple will be discussing because there are too many iconic ones. We’re sure there are plenty of stories about this, and we only have until May 3 to find out – or June 9 for us in the UK.
You can pre-order Disrupting the Game, both the physical book and the audio book, from Amazon now. So you better make sure your body is prepared for it.
