Nintendo America have just announced their new Vice President of Sales following the departure of Reggie Fils-Aimé, and his name is unbelievable. As in, I did not believe it until I verified it.
His name is Doug Bowser.
As in the main antagonist in all of Nintendo’s Mario games. Who has a fictional female counterpart called Bowsette that fans thirsted over last year.
Putting aside the amazing fact that it’s a real human name, what are the odds that someone with that name would 1. end up working at Nintendo and 2. end up in charge of Nintendo?
How do we know this wasn’t his plan all along? To live up to his name and take down Nintendo from within?
TBH, he looks too nice to do that, but still.
Doug Bowser is on Twitter and is actually really nice. He even embraces the fact that his last name is the same of a Super Mario Villian. I really wish him luck because it was always going to be massively difficult for whoever takes Reggie’s place.

But it’s still pretty hilarious.
I, for one, welcome our new Bowser overlord! https://t.co/iaUlMXo9Nm

Wait… why are Mario and Luigi tied up?! Oh no.
We're actually about to live in the timeline where Bowser reigns supreme over Nintendo of America

And his Twitter username is @thetruebowser?
Oh no. I’m getting nervous. Has Nintendo made a terrible mistake?
I guess things could have been worse.
