Update: Not wanting to let you down on your daily fix of essential Nintendo news, we are happy to confirm that the chair has now arrived. Phew!


Original Article: Last month, as ex-Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aimé shared last minute photos and memories from his office, fans began to notice something which was described by some as being "way out of hand": his chair was believed to be a 16-year-old, out of date model deemed not good enough for a man of his status.

Why does this even matter in the slightest, you ask? Why should we be concerned with Reggie or Nintendo's chair of choice? Well, because this is the internet and this is what people do now apparently.

Anyway, seemingly upset that Reggie was "forced to sit in a value-priced" chair during his time at the company, fans began to sign a petition which said that "Nintendo of America Inc. must honour retiring legend Reggie with a fully loaded Aeron chair". Nintendo itself seems unsurprisingly unmoved by the petition, but it would seem that Herman Miller - the company behind the super fancy Aeron chair - has listened to fans' wishes.

The lesson to learn from this? You can achieve anything if you really put your mind to it. Even if your dream is to see an ex-president of your favourite company be rewarded with a fancy seat.
