Nope. He works in the game industry so it only makes sense to give him an invite. Not much different then a celebrity, who is not presenting or nominated, getting an invite to an awards show. Personally, I think it’s all marketing. The more big names you can draw in, the more people will be interested in the show and actually tune in. Just by simply mentioning his name, you already have captured the interest of some Nomura fans. It just means more money.
