Fans petitioning to have Reggie Fils-Aime from Nintendo a playable character in the new Smash Bros.

I don’t know if 7,000 signatures is enough to persuade Sakurai to do it, but having Reggie in the new Smash Bros. would be pretty cool.

A new Change.org petition calls on Super Smash Bros. designer Masahiro Sakurai to include Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime in the upcoming Wii U and 3DS game as a playable character. The petition has over 7,000 signatures at press time.

“Many Nintendo fans have pleaded for Reggie to be in the upcoming Super Smash Bros. games and he would be a unique character,” reads a line from the petition. “He could use Nintendo controllers and characters to his advantage as attacks.”

Fils-Aime has acknowledged that he is open to the idea of being included in the game, saying last month that if Sakurai thought it would be a good idea, “my body is ready.”

If Sakurai does include Fils-Aime as a playable character, it won’t be without giving the idea some serious thought. The designer previously described Smash Bros. roster selection as “stressful to the brink of death.”

The all-new Smash Bros. game launches in 2014 for Wii U and 3DS. Unlike its predecessor, Super Smash Bros. Brawl, the new game will not feature a story mode or cutscenes.
