His last name is Bowser? Really? That's like Phil Goblin taking over Marvel.

There is no way that's real. Is the new VP named Wario too? C'mon now.

The Doug Bowser name jokes have been going on for years is this literally the first time you guys have heard of him?

I swear we had the Bowser discussion here before somewhere.

But now he's the President of the company! The resurfacing of jokes is what we need right now.

Nice that he's going out on his own terms, from what it appears. He came off as enthusiastic dork sometimes, but I appreciated that he was always excited about the products.

Him retiring means almost nothing. He had a unique relationship with US retail distribution channels but that was really it. Product and production-wise, all their decisions came from Japan.

But let's be fair, he is well-liked and is the "face" of Nintendo in this country.

Good for him, and now he gets to spend plenty of time with his family. I would love to be able to retire at age 57.

For sure - 57 is damn young (well, at least to me it is).

He had a good presence though when it came to press conferences or presentations for unveiling new products and stuff. Good amount of charisma and seemed like a decent guy. Its always good to have a person like that as head honcho for a company as it projects well onto what youre doing. Im surprised hes retiring as hes pretty young, but I guess good for him. Cant say I wouldnt do the same if I had the opportunity to retire fairly young.
