Nintendo President Doug Bowser Reflects on a Successful Year

Nintendo president Doug Bowser recently highlighted the significant accomplishments of the company in 2023 during an interview with The Olympian at the Nintendo Live event. Bowser expressed his satisfaction with the releases and developments that took place throughout the year.

One of the major successes mentioned by Bowser was the release of The Super Mario Bros. Movie. This animated film, a collaboration between Illumination and Nintendo, quickly became the second-highest-grossing animated film of all time, generating a staggering $1.3 billion at the box office.

Another notable achievement was the critically acclaimed release of The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom. This game sold a remarkable 18 million units shortly after its launch, making it one of Nintendo's fastest-selling titles to date.

Bowser also acknowledged the success of Super Nintendo World at Universal Hollywood. The theme park expansion resulted in a 25% increase in Comcast's Q1 earnings, emphasizing the positive impact it has had on the company's overall performance.

For Nintendo, this year has been marked by a series of entertainment-based activities aimed at attracting a wider audience to their IP. Bowser expressed his excitement about continuing to introduce more people, including non-gamers, to the world of Nintendo.

Reflecting on the year as a whole, Bowser described it as a highly unique and successful period for Nintendo, which has greatly contributed to the company's overall strategy and growth.

Overall, with the success of The Super Mario Bros. Movie, The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, and Super Nintendo World, Nintendo has undeniably had a banner year in 2023.
