Xbox and The Coalition have announced that Gears 5 has gone gold, and, to celebrate that news, has revealed the full spoiler-free achievement list for the upcoming Xbox One and Windows 10 PC game.

Why are we writing about it on a Nintendo-dedicated website, you ask? Well, there is an achievement that references former Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime’s legacy, after making a now-iconic remark at E3 2007.

Before stepping on to the Wii Balance Board to help demonstrate Wii Fit to those watching the conference, Fils-Aime quipped: “My body is ready.” And with that, a meme was born.

The phrase has become synonymous with him since, and now Xbox has made a friendly nod to it in their anticipated blockbuster. Those that complete the opening Boot Camp in Gears 5 will unlock the My Body Is Ready achievement, earning 5 GamerScore for their efforts.

“Nice tip of the hat my friend, Phil Spencer,” Fils-Aime has shared in response to the gesture.

Gears 5 will release exclusively for Xbox One and Windows 10 PC worldwide on September 10th.
