Video: Reggie Shows Off Wii U to Jimmy Fallon, Hilarity Ensues
Posted by Thomas Whitehead
COME ON!!! BANG BANG!!!
It's been video game week on the Late Night with Jimmy Fallon show, with various executives making an appearance and various game-related shenanigans, including an awesome Mario rap by The Roots. Wrapping up the week, Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aime made his customary appearance to show off the Wii U.
Rather sensibly starting with another clarification that the Wii U is, in fact, a brand new system and not a Wii expansion, Fallon had a go at Game & Wario before some two-player fun in December release Super Mario 3D World. We learn that Fallon gets pretty excited playing Nintendo games, and that Reggie's skills in Mario's latest adventure are a little, um, underwhelming.
This is a pretty funny video, and is ultimately — in our opinion at least — a little under five minutes of seriously good coverage for the system; because games are for enjoyment, right? That certainly seems to be the message in this little get together.
