The man said it himself! But don't worry, he has a plan to come back, take names and kick ass.
See, before he went up to present the prizes for the Smash Bros Invitational, Fils-Aime had confessed at the end of an interview with Kotaku that his skills were limited.
"I want Kotaku people to know that Smash Bros. on 3DS is awesome, 60 frames per second, a great portable experience. Smash on 3DS is going to be the mechanism by which Reggie Fils-Aime becomes a world-class smash player. That's what I want the Kotaku people to know."
Yes, he said that. And then he told us his special strategy. He's going to play as himself using the game's support for Miis and he's going to use a custom move-list so that his opponents have no idea which moves are coming. We suggested he train for the game and turn it into a reality show.
(We'll have more serious stuff from our interview with Fils-Aime in the near future.)
