Nintendo prepares for its NX console announcement with serial killer Mario


Seriously, that’s the image they used on Twitter. The one of Mario peeping around your shower curtain, his bloodied glove dangling a gore-clotted screwdriver just out of frame.

“Itsa me,” he whispers, putrid clumps of mushroom dribbling from his lips. “Your worsta nightmare.”

Anyway, Nintendo is apparently prepping to drop a “preview trailer” of its new NX console tonight at 16:00 local time. Is it even a console? You never know with Nintendo. Previous reports have claimed it’s some sort of cartridge-based tablet… thing, but maybe it’s a rubber band you wear around your ankle that uses intermittent electromagnetic pulses to generate vivid, ultra-realistic prefrontal cortex hallucinations. Not even PlayStation VR could compete with that. Unless it explodes, obviously.
