Nintendo makes the perfect hire

Owen S. Good is a longtime veteran of video games writing, well known for his coverage of sports and racing games.

Look, when you're Nintendo, and you get a chance to hire this guy, you do it, if only for the chance to write this kind of a press release:

bowser nintendo

Yes, that's real. You have to figure once he applied this was Doug's job to lose, right? Unless he was up against Toad Bob-omb or something.

The best part is Bowser actually worked for seven years for Electronic Arts before joining Nintendo.

Bowser "is an outstanding addition to our Nintendo team, as he brings a deep blend of both consumer package goods and video game sales experience," said Scott Moffitt, the executive vice president for sales and marketing for Nintendo of America. "I know he will work tirelessly with our internal and external partners to ensure the broad Nintendo product lineup of hardware, software and accessories are strongly represented throughout U.S. retail points of distribution."

Please tell me he has a Peach amiibo locked in his desk drawer.
