Mario puts on the white coat once again in the mobile game Dr. Mario World, targeting an early summer 2019 global release.

Billionaire entrepreneur Elon Musk famously suggested that there is a high likelihood that humanity is living within a computer simulation. On Thursday, Nintendo offered some evidence to bolster that theory as it announced that Reggie Fils-Aimé will step down in April as president of the company's U.S. division. Bowser serves as senior vice president for sales and marketing at Nintendo of America, and will take over April 15, according to the company. "We will continue to build on [Fils-Aimé's] work to evolve and expand our brand, furthering Nintendo's global mission of creating smiles," Bowser said. On Twitter, Nintendo fans reacted with mock outrage over the sudden takeover of the company by one of its most iconic villains, and with gratitude toward Fils-Aimé, one of Nintendo's most visible officials for the past decade.
