Although Bowser has currently been released from prison, that however still doesn’t free him from the staggering amount owed in restitution to Nintendo by him. Bowser already agreed to pay $10 million to settle a piracy lawsuit that was filed by Nintendo, and that’s already on top of a separate federal court order that requires him to pay the gaming company the sum of $4.5 million.
