Former Nintendo Boss Reggie Fils-Aimé Gives Blockchain Technology A Ringing Endorsement

At March’s SXSW festival in Austin, Texas, Reggie Fils-Aimé spoke about his career, his time with Nintendo, and the things he has done since his 2019 retirement. The former Nintendo of America COO and president also revealed that he is a big fan of blockchain technology and play-to-own games.

“I’m also a believer in the concept of ‘play-to-own’ within video games,” said Fils-Aimé. “And I say this as a player where I may have invested 50 hours in a game, a hundred hours in a game… There’s some games I’ve invested 300 hours in a game. And when I’m ready to move on to something else, wouldn’t it be great to monetize what I’ve built? Blockchain technology embedded in the code and in the development would enable me to do that. So, I’m a believer in the technology and where it’s headed.”

Fils-Aimé quickly added that any type of blockchain-like technology would need to “make sense for the player.”

“It can’t just be an approach by the developer that [finds] it’s ‘interesting’ or it’s a way for them as a ‘development entity’ to make more money, he said. “In the end, it’s got to be good for the player. But I see an opportunity.”
