No, not that one.
If it wasn’t already official enough, it’s now 100% confirmed – Bowser is Nintendo of America’s president and there’s no turning back. If you caught Nintendo’s E3 2019 Direct presentation, you most-definitely saw Doug Bowser – Reggie’s replacement – appear in his first Direct as the head of the American subsidiary.
If you did miss it, you can probably guess what went down. Instead of the human Bowser, Mario’s arch-enemy actually appeared alongside Nintendo’s Yoshiaki Koizumi. It was quite hilarious, as predictable as it might have been. Not long after this, the real Bowser eventually walked out and owned the spotlight while informing the other one about the mix-up. Here’s a recap:
It’s hard to believe, but it seems like Doug has already won over the majority of Nintendo’s fans and it’s all because his surname is Bowser. Honestly, this is all it took for people to trust the guy who’s been troubling Mario for more than 30 years? Maybe every company should appoint a president who has a surname of relevance.
Regardless of this, we think Doug did a fantastic job in his first presentation as Nintendo of America’s president. It’s also got us wondering how Nintendo will keep this joke alive. Maybe Baby Bowser will appear in a future Direct? We guess we’ll find out!
