Former President of Nintendo of America, Reggie Fils-Aimé will collect the Andrew Yoon Legend Award at the 9th annual New York Game Awards.
The Andrew Yoon prize is awarded to those who “exhibit a significant, sustained body of work that shows exceptional achievement and innovation”. Speaking to IGN via email, Fils-Aimé said:
“It’s an honor to be recognized by the New York Game Awards for my work in an industry that I’ve committed so many years to. But, it’s not just about the time I’ve committed to the gaming industry and specifically to Nintendo, it’s about the people along the way I’ve had the opportunity to lead, influence and inspire. Receiving this honor is a great reminder that my goal of being (and remaining) a strategic and leading force in the industry is recognized by my peers.”
