A clever Redditor, Jer-Bear92, noticed a familiar name pop up in pool D46 for Super Smash Bros. for Wii U. The name registered was TH|Trintroll.

That name suggests Bill Trinen, Senior Product Marketing Manager for Nintendo of America. Despite his job title, most gamers would recognize him as Shigeru Miyamoto's interpreter. The TH most likely stands for Nintendo Treehouse.

While this might have been interpreted as simple trolling, Trinen actually confirmed it to be true on Twitter this morning! Apparently, the Nintendo employee plays Rosalina.

Check out his confirmation below.
