Next month, Nintendo will be releasing three sets of Super Mario playing cards in Japan. The three choices consist of: 2D illustrations, 3D CGI versions, and old-school 8-bit renderings that are sure to bring back fond memories.
Why are all the cool products only released in Japan? Hopefully these will become available to the rest of us plebeians via eBay or a collectibles site.
That is doubly hilarious and awesome to me because Nintendo was a playing card company when it was first formed back in the late 1880s. Check out the Wikipedia article on the ‘history of nintendo’ and you will see what I mean. Love it!
