Today, we picked up some information that could be a hint as to what Nintendo will not be revealing at this year’s E3. For anyone who was hoping we’d see a new Mario title with Bowser as the game’s main baddie, think again. As it turns out, Bowser has gotten out of the bad guy business and has opened up a furniture store in Hummelstown, PA.

We took a trip out there today, and Bowser has a pretty great selection of couches and dining room tables. Whether we go with wood or glass for our office is a big decision, and we put a lot of thought into it today. Still, we wouldn’t want you to miss this:
