Fans Think Nintendo of America Boss Stealth Teased a Metroid Prime 4 Reveal for The Game Awards

Hiding in plain sight.

Did Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime just tease a Metroid Prime 4 reveal for The Game Awards this year by way of a t-shirt?

Game Awards producer and host Geoff Keighley posted a photo on Twitter on Wednesday featuring himself, Reggie Fils-Aime, and celebrity chef Wolfgang Puck (not Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot, though more on that in a moment). In the picture you can see Reggie wearing a Metroid shirt under his jacket. Combined with Keighly's message that they'll "See you in December!" and commenters are wondering if this isn't a stealth tease.

Fils-Aime is usually known as a rather business-y dresser so the Metroid t-shirt is either a purposeful move on his part, or just what he wears during casual outings. Maybe he and Keighley were just having a nice business meeting at a Wolfgang Puck's.

Speaking of Puck. Twitter users apparently mistook Puck as Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot, and so did I at first admittedly until I read our colleagues at Nintendo Life clear up his identity. Seriously though it's eerie how much restaurant mogul Wolfgang Puck resembles Ubisoft boss Yves Guillemot.
