John Cena has been promoting the Nintendo Switch before the launch and what better person to promote the upcoming hybrid console than someone who has been playing Nintendo games since the original.
In a recent interview, John Cena was asked about his gaming history and this is how he responded:
“I am a certainly a child of the original Nintendo Entertainment System, or NES, as the gamer Hall of Famers attribute it. That eight-bit graphical interface has truly stood the test of time, and now you see so many vintage designs and content available in eight-bit. I grew up with the start of the original eight games licensed from Nintendo—Donkey Kong, Mario Bros., which was before Super Mario Bros., then Super Mario Bros., Ice Climber, Urban Champion, Gyromite with the robot. You name it, I had it. I grew up through all that.”
It was interesting to see that John Cena knew about games besides the mainstream titles and that he has been gaming for some time now. Even though it was interesting it is sad to know that he has not been gaming after the NES and that could be because of his career as a body builder and wrestler gives him little time for gaming.
If John Cena is actually into the Nintendo Switch then it is possible that this could be his comeback to the gaming world. As the Nintendo Switch is going to be something you will be able to carry around with you, we might see John Cena playing some games in his free time when he is on the move.
