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.
