Nintendo has a new boss and his name is actually Bowser

You’re definitely not going to believe us on this one, but Nintendo of America has just hired a new head of the company with an oddly familiar name. The videogame corporation’s new boss is named (drum roll please) Bowser.

It’s not yet confirmed whether he descends from the same corrupt lizard royalty as the Super Mario character, but Bowser has officially announced that he’ll be taking over for Reggie Fils-Aime. “It has been my great fortune to work with and be mentored by Reggie for four years at Nintendo of America,” Bowser revealed in a press release (alongside a couple of flame-throwing growls). “And rest assured, we will continue to build on his work to evolve and expand our brand, furthering Nintendo’s global mission of creating smiles.”

Check out some hilarious reactions to the announcement below.
