Soulja Boy retweeted Nintendo’s video discussing Fils-Aime’s retirement on February 22, with a caption that hinted at his potential involvement in the change.
“I made him retire,” Soulja said of the development, including the 🤷♂️ emoji in his post for good measure.
However, that didn’t stop his efforts; the rapper later introduced yet another series of consoles that imitated Sony’s products, which were also removed after a short period of time - as was his entire website.
Soulja went on to create a new website with an equally new console, which was smaller (and significantly cheaper) than his previous systems.
Soulja’s console initiative garnered ample controversy, due to his systems being ROM-hacked, knockoff consoles available for purchase through sites like AliExpress and Amazon for a much lower price point.
Fils-Aime’s retirement came as a surprise to many fans of the company - especially considering the fact that Nintendo of America’s next president is literally named ‘Doug Bowser.’
Soulja has since set his sights on potentially boxing controversial YouTuber Jake Paul in a $20 million dollar match - although no concrete details have yet been released for their bout.
