Who likes chocolate? I’m sure the majority of you do. If you live in Japan you will soon find Mario and his companions hiding inside exquisite Furuta chocolate eggs. This special Super Mario figure set has been created to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Super Mario Bros franchise. As you would expect you have no idea which figure you are going to get, so in theory you are going to spending your time munching yummy chocolate in an effort to collect them all.
Nintendo has announced that the newest batch of concerts, Super Mario Bros. 30th Anniversary Live, will be going on tour… only in Japan.

Imagine being able to cuddle your favourite Nintendo character? Well, now you can! These amazing Nintendo 8-bit plushies are going on sale in July from the World of Nintendo toyline, and are available to pre-order now for $54.99 for all 3 plushies– pretty steep, but they are pretty unique. Some pre-orders have already sold out! I’d love to get myself an 8-bit Link plushie, but I can’t quite justify the price. What do you think of them?
The Nintendo UK Store has been great recently for offering special pre-order bonuses when you order an upcoming exclusive.
