Smash Bros fans petition to get Reggie as playable character

Is his body ready?

Ever since that unforgettable moment when he swaggered on stage, cast his piercing gaze into the E3 audience and proclaimed he's about kickin' ass, takin' names and makin' games, Nintendo of America COO Reggie Fils-Aime has been a fan favourite.

Now, fans of the Regginator have launched a petition to have the Nintendo exec introduced as a playable character in the next Super Smash Bros. game for Wii U and 3DS.

The petition, which you can and definitely should sign here, floats the idea that Reggie could "use Nintendo controllers and characters to his advantage as attacks".

The #ReggieForSmashBros movement has encouraged Twitter users to contact Smash Bros. creator Masahiro Sakurai to increase their chances of success.

"To raise awareness about this, please use the hashtag #ReggieForSmashBros and Tweet to @Sora_Sakurai to let him know about this petition. Also Tweet to @NintendoOfAmerica, @NintendoEurope, and @NintendoUK; and post about this on Miiverse to prove to Nintendo that Reggie deserves a spot on the roster."
