The charismatic former president of Nintendo of America compiles life and leadership lessons in a book.
Undoubtedly one of the characters who left an important mark on the contemporary history of Nintendo and the video game industry was Reggie fils-aime, who held the position of President of Nintendo of America and was popularized among players by the events of the brand that he had to present.
After his departure from Gamestop – a chain of video game stores of which he was head for less than a year – it was announced that Fils-Aime is preparing a book in which you will share leadership lessons Inspired by anecdotes that led him to become, against all odds, one of the most important men in the video game industry in the United States. The book is named “Disrupting the Game: From the Bronx to the Top of Nintendo” and its publication is expected by May 24, 2022.
“Learn from Reggie how to take advantage of disruptive thinking to identify life options that will make you happy, conquer negative perceptions of those who underestimate or dismiss you,” says the official description of the book in which Reggie talks about challenges you faced in your life, from his humble childhood as the son of Haitian immigrants, to conquering the peak of success in the video game industry. It remains the question of how much will be written in this text about the way Nintendo operates in the West, a company that is usually reserved with most of its internal processes.
What happened to Reggie? Not much is known about his career after his departure from Gamestop, but he is no stranger to commenting on industry issues such as E3 2021, an event that he said should have more ambition on the part of its organizers.
If this type of reading is your thing, perhaps it is also convenient to remind you that last spring the book “Ask Iwata: Words of Wisdom from Nintendo’s Legendary CEO” arrived in the West, which takes up some quotes from one of the legendary bosses of Nintendo.
