In a recent interview with Kotaku, Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aimé discussed the Nintendo World Championships, including his one-on-one Smash Bros. match against Hungrybox.

According to Reggie, he lost so badly in the match because he has never been a good Smash Bros. player; he also stated that he had not done any training before taking on Hungrybox, aside from one match to test out Ryu. Here’s Reggie’s full statement:

Fils-Aime: “You’ve seen my Nintendo 3DS. You know I play our content.”

Kotaku: “No doubt, no doubt. And I also heard you’re amazing at Wii Tennis. I heard that a while ago.”

Fils-Aime: “You saw my progress in New Super Mario Bros. 2. I can show you my Animal Crossing house. I can show you the progress I’ve made on every single Zelda title. I play our content. The fact of the matter is I’ve never been a good Smash player. Never. Never.”

Kotaku: “Right.”

Fils-Aime: “And so in a momentary loss of control last year, I made a bombastic statement that came back to haunt me. Hungrybox is actually right here in our booth right now. Great guy. But yeah he kicked my butt.”

Kotaku: “Had you done any training beforehand?”

Fils-Aime: “No. No. I picked up the controller once leading up, because I played a new character. And so… no. I had not done any training. Maybe that was my problem.”

What do you guys think? Perhaps Reggie should have put in a few more training matches? Sound off in the comments!

Greetings Gamnesiacs! I'm Elijah Holt, a Associate Editor coming at you live from beautiful Alabama. My love for gaming started at an early age and has ingrained a love for two different gaming companies in my mind. On one side, my love of the Nintendo 64 and my countless hours spent perfecting the first few levels of Super Mario 64 (I was never good enough to get past those...maybe if they release it for the Wii U eShop someday...) resulted in my love for everything Nintendo; meanwhile, I also owned an original PlayStation, which has resulted in me currently owning a PS3 and PS4 for a few Sony exclusives and third-party titles. I'm a recent graduate of Auburn University, where I majored in Software Engineering. I currently work in DevOps as an Automation Engineer. I look forward to continuing to provide the finest content on the internet to loyal Gamnesia readers like you. Want to contact me? You can always shoot me an email at [email protected]
