My Japanese is better than Reggie’s

My Japanese is better than Reggie’s

Nintendo are pushing ever closer to the launch of The WiiU and showing off the new bells and whistles, as part of a “nintendo Direct” presentation last night, Reggie Fils-Aime (president of Nintendo America),  and Satoru Iwata (President of Nintendo) demonstrated Wii U Chat video conferancing… which was every bit as awkward as this kind of demo always is… Made even more so by the hilariously atrocious attempt phonetically speaking at Japanese that Reggie made.

Iwata of course in his very Japanese way, didn’t call Reggie out, but gave him one of those polite, but empty, Japanese compliments that one will always receive from a native Japanese speaker when you ask them how yours is, no matter how badly you’re butchering their tongue and violating their ears. ;)
