Nintendo of America announced Wednesday that it hired a new vice president of sales, Doug Bowser.
He shares a name with the iconic turtle beast from Nintendo's Mario franchise.
"Doug Bowser brings decades of experience, not fire breath," the famed game maker said in a press release.
Naturally, Twitter was pretty into the news:
Reached for comment, a spokesman for Bowser told the Daily Dot, "I'm afraid he's in another castle at the moment."
