Towards the end of last year, it was revealed that ex-President and COO of Nintendo of America, Reggie Fils-Aimé, would receive an Andrew Yoon Legend Award. That time has finally come, and Reggie's entire acceptance speech has been shared to YouTube in the video above.

The video begins with an introduction for Reggie followed by a tribute video; his speech itself starts at around the 10:10 mark. The Legend Award "recognises individuals and organisations that exhibit a significant, sustained body of work that shows exceptional achievement and innovation", with past recipients including the likes of Jade Raymond and Todd Howard.
