If you wanted to get a friend or loved one hooked on the Nintendo Switch, what game would you choose for them? For some, it might be The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild or Animal Crossing: New Horizons, but for Nintendo of America’s current president Doug Bowser, the top pick is Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.
In his latest post on the social media platform Twitter, Doug showed off a photo of his parents playing the ‘Deluxe’ version of Mario Kart 8 in portable mode, and it seems either his Mum or Dad is quite good – placing second as Koopa Troopa on what appears to be Moo Moo Meadows. Doug himself, as you can see, is rocking a cool SNES shirt.
As of 31st March 2021, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe had sold 35.29 million copies worldwide and remains the best-selling Switch game to date. You can see why – with photos like the ones above proving anyone (of any age) can enjoy this game.
Apart from visiting his parents this month, a few weeks ago Doug took the opportunity to head into Nintendo’s New York store to say hello to his statue, and personally thank the staff there for everything they’ve done over the past year. What a great boss Bowser is!
