Nintendo's Doug Bowser makes Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom Twitter goof

You know, the game with that guy Zelda and the evil Gannon!

Listen, we’re all very excited about The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom. That excitement causes us to rush thoughts and make mistakes. It happens to the best of us, and that includes Nintendo’s Doug Bowser.


In a now-deleted tweet, Doug Bowser shared the news of The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom blowing past 10 million copies sold in just 3 days. Along with that reveal, Doug also shared a personal comment thanking fans for the support. Unfortunately for Doug, there was a rather odd typo included.

As you may have spotted, Bowser said ‘Hyland’ instead of ‘Hyrule.’ Of course, now the question is whether this was just a slip of the brain, or whether it indicates that Bowser doesn’t really know much about The Legend of Zelda in general. Obviously, Bowser has since deleted his tweet and shared a corrected one, but the debate still rages on.

Simple mistake or an inside look at Bowser’s lack of Zelda knowledge? We’ll leave the discussion up to you.

Maybe it could even be an autocorrect problem. Who knows?

I'm calling this one an autocorrect issue.

To be fair, it must be difficult to type with those huge claws.

I hope people aren't taking this too seriously. 😒

To be fair, the game does feature some high land.

He’s been stomping on Koopas in Hyland for years (/s)

99% sure it was an autocorrect goof.

WTH is Hyland? Why would it correct to that?
