A dastardly idea to include Nintendo's chief operating officer Reggie Fils-Aime in the new Super Smash bros has quickly escalated over the internet. The online petition on change.org which is over 8000 strong and rising wants to waste a character slot on Nintendo employee Reggie Fils-Aime as these special group of Nintendo fans plead for his inclusion. If you thought the wii fit trainer's inclusion was a silly idea then you're bound to shake your head and facepalm.
As already confirmed there won't be a ton of characters returning in Super Smash bros and to just throw away a character slot for an online joke is no laughing matter, no matter how much Nintendo fans wants to vent their anger on a pixelated Reggie, this isn't the answer. Let's not forget that the new SSB won't feature a story mode or cutscenes so if Sakurai does implement Reggie to the roster, then this would basically be adding salt to injury. Super Smash bros arrives in 2014 on the WII U and 3DS.
