If you weren’t a fan of The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD‘s primarily gold packaging, you’ll be happy to know that Nintendo is now selling the colorful version of the box art at retailers in North America. It looks like the gold box art is still being sold if you prefer that one. Which cover would you pick if you had to choose between the two? I would pick the colorful one as I feel it better captures the vibrant nature of game.
You probably heard that earlier today a Reddit user revealed that he had in his possession an incredibly rare Nintendo PlayStation. There were obviously quite a few skeptics out there, but the Reddit user who owns the console uploaded some footage of the device which is no doubt worth an absolute fortune, if it is the real deal. The machine doesn’t have any cables so it hasn’t been hooked up to a television set, so we’ve got no idea what the actual bootup is like. Anyway, if you are at all interested be sure to check out the video for a glimpse of this rarity.

Nintendo UK has taken to the streets of London to recreate a retro Super Mario mural in aid of the plumber’s 30th Anniversary. Located in Shoreditch within the capital city, fans can see the large spray painted mural celebrating Super Mario Maker for the Wii U.

Plus, we’ve also managed to take a snap of the red-capped plumber on our travels in London too – and it’s just as awesome as it looks.

It’s true, Nintendo’s very own Bill Trinen will be competing this year at EVO 2015. Trinen tweeted confirmation that he would be participating in the Super Smash Bros Wii U tournament.
