  • Mario Question Blocks Appear in New York to Win a Trip to SUPER NINTENDO WORLD

    22.February.2020 | ANIME&GAME / SPOT

    SUPER NINTENDO WORLD is set to open at Universal Studios Japan (USJ) in 2020ーthe year of the Tokyo Olympicsーas the world’s first theme park area centred on the world, games and video game characters from Nintendo. A whopping 60 billion yen has been injected to make the park a reality.

     

    In promotion of the park, the “SUPER NINTENDO WORLD CHALLENGE” was held in New York, US on February 19.

    Fans dashed to Grand Central Terminalーa tourist hot spotーwhere the event was held to play a game involving the iconic Question Blocks from the Mario video game franchise. The set-up, which brought to mind a Bonus Stage from the game, had people hitting the question blocks just like Marioーsomething which we all must have imagined doing before.

    1,000 people participated in the event which they signed up to prior. It was a day of fun for not only players but onlookers too. Grand prize winners won trips to SUPER NINTENDO WORLD, which is set to open before the Tokyo Olympic Games start, while all other participants got their hands on some exclusive SUPER NINTENDO WORLD merch early.

     

    One participant said: “I love everything about Mario, so I knew I’d definitely be taking part today! I’ve loved Mario since I was a kid, I even had a plush toy of him. Mario really is exciting. I’ve always wanted to be Mario, so I’m really happy with how today turned out. I want to go to SUPER NINTENDO WORLD with my best friend and try out all the attractions. I’m sure it’s gonna be a lot of fun!” (Male, 20 / Staten Island, New York) *Translated from Japanese

    One of the grand prize winners said: “I’ve been a huge fan of Nintendo’s games since I was 3-years-old. I was lucky to get to take part in the SUPER NINTENDO WORLD CHALLENGE today, but to go and win the grand prize is an amazing feeling! I’ll be going to Japan with my girlfriend who I love so much! I’m always paying attention to news about SUPER NINTENDO WORLD. The Mario Kart attraction will definitely be a ride, I’m looking forward to it so much I just can’t wait! I always thought it would be great if they made a Mario theme park, so the fact they’re doing it in both Japan and even the US is amazing!” (Male, 20 / The Bronx, US) *Translated from Japanese

    The Question Blocks also made an appearance in Times Square. The event was covered on the morning news in the US with fans visible at the event, Rockefeller Plaza, and elsewhere.

     

    If you’re a Mario and Nintendo fan planning a trip to Japan then be sure you get to experience SUPER NINTENDO WORLD when it opens this year.

  • PLAYFUL KIRBY: Laforet Harajuku’s Newest Pop-Up Shop Offers Exclusives For Fans of Nintendo’s Popular Character

    17.December.2019 | ANIME&GAME / FASHION / FEATURES

    Fans of Kirby who are in Japan for the holiday season will be delighted to hear that the Kirby-themed pop-up shop “PLAYFUL KIRBY” finally opened at Laforet Harajuku today and will run until Boxing Day.

     

    When playing Super Smash Bros. there’s no other character I’ll pick but Kirby. If you love Kirby as much as I do, then you’ll be waiting no time at all to head to PLAYFUL KIRBY like I did after hearing that they’re selling a whole range of original and exclusive merchandise the likes of which Nintendo players have never seen before.

    The store itself is located on the second floor of Laforet Harajuku in Harajuku, Tokyo. You’ll spot it instantly with the Kirby-pink text wrapped around the walls of the entrance.

    Kirby’s pink colour fills the entire shop floor. Upon entering you’ll spot all the different items on offer, including fashion items, as well as various photo spots featuring Kirby’s cute face.

    There’s even a tiny Kirby door so that he can get into the shop! Be sure to find it if you visit.

     

    The original version of this pop-up shop first appeared two years ago, and enjoyed visits not only from game fans, both kids and adults who had never heard of Kirby before, or who had heard of him but never played the games. The fashion line-up was a result of fan demand to enjoy Kirby in a variety of different ways. A visit to PLAYFUL KIRBY is like being inhaled into his Dream Land.

    PLAYFUL KIRBY is centred on two collaborations. This includes a teaming-up with popular illustrator Shogo Sekine. When this pop-up shop was conceived, Shogo Sekine was at the top of the list for collaborations with the staff in charge. The staff agreed that mixing the worlds of Kirby and Sekine together would give rise to some seriously wonderful results. After much internal discussion and talks with Sekine, a whole line of merchandise was created.

    The items feature Sekine’s stylised typography, symbols, shapes and so on. Their subtle design means they can be used as both everyday items and nerdy fan items. They’re stylish while retaining the cute aspects of Kirby.

     

    The following items are the number one most recommended pieces of merchandise to pick up as chosen by the PLAYFUL KIRBY staff.

    Tote Bags Ver. 2 PINK STRIPE – ¥2,800

    These tote bags feature gradations of Kirby pinks. This design is also featured on a t-shirt you can pick up too. They’re both made with high quality fabrics.

    Sacoche Pouches (2 Designs) – ¥2,300 Each

    The “Copy” written on the sacoche pouches refers to Kirby’s ability to copy his opponents’ abilities and appearance. This design is also included on a variety of other merchandise pieces like a smartphone case and more.

    Blanket – ¥3,800

    At first glance, this blanket just looks like a stylish blanket with a floral print, but if you look closely you’ll spot Kirby blended in with the design. A perfect choice for the coming winter season.

    Plush Toy – ¥2,300

    Kirby had intended to put on his stylish t-shirt ready to go out, but he ended up looking just adorable.

    The store’s second collaboration is with Converse Stars, also showcasing an assortment of cute and fun items.

    Cap – ¥5,800 / Long T-Shirt (Medium/Large) – ¥7,800 Each

    Show off your love of Kirby with some simple but stylish unisex Kirby attire.

    Hand Towel – ¥1,200

    Another must-get item is this hand towel which keeps the roundness of Kirby’s head. Use at home or take it out with you!

    Stickers (3 Designs) – ¥500 Each

    Get your hands on these Laforet Harajuku-exclusive stickers with designs so cute you’ll want to collect them all!

     

    I spoke with the person in charge of the pop-up shop about the future of Kirby outside of the video game, and they told me that they plan to have more pop-up shops like this and open the opportunity for people to enjoy Kirby in a range of different ways while playing his games. For someone like me, who likes Kirby more than anything, I can’t wait to enjoy even more Kirby in the future.

    PLAYFUL KIRBY is open until December 26, 2019, so if you’re in Tokyo until then, make sure to pop on over to Laforet Harajuku.

  • Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 Unveils 5 Sports in the Game

    27.September.2019 | ANIME&GAME

    As excitement is on the rise worldwide in anticipation for the Tokyo 2020 Games, the world just cannot wait for the release of the iconic Nintendo Switch™ game Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020, which is due to be released very soon. Sega has just unveiled a small snippet of information on five events that are going to be included in the game which we are sharing with you today.

    Tokyo 2020 100m

    Aim for nothing but first place in the Tokyo 2020 100m. Increase your speed with the rapid push of a button. By building up your speed before the race starts and releasing it at the correct moment, you will get off to a dashing start. The “special dash” is a way to rapidly cut down on your time. 

    Tokyo 2020 Rugby Sevens

    This game will plunge you straight into the action. Work with your team of seven and use a range of tactics such as passes, strong tackles and kicks to get the upper hand. Carry the ball to the goalline to watch those points roll in. When your special gauge reaches its max power, you will be able to use a “super dash” ability to get the ball to the goalline if on the offense. If on defence, your special ability is the “special tackle”, which will provide you with the power to whip the ball away from your opponent. These special abilities have the power to drastically turn the tables and are not to be taken lightly. This game features guest character Diddy Kong!

    Tokyo 2020 Canoeing

    Get your heart pumping with the thrill of competition while staying synchronised with your partner in a canoeing race. If your timing is perfect, you will pick up speed straight away. Team up with your friend and dive right into the fun. If you are falling behind, don’t let your heart sink in despair. Paddle as much as you can and you will be able to catch up with the others in no time!

    Toyko 2020 Equestrian Jumping

    Let no hurdle taint your gracefulness as you soar through the sky and clear each one. You can take part in Equestrian Jumping individually or as part of a team. Be careful of sharp turns and hurdles! When you increase your speed, your stamina will drop, however, you will recover lost stamina with every hurdle you successfully clear. If you manage to clear lots of hurdles in succession, you will gain enormous amounts of speed and will be on your way to a record-breaking winner. You can also use a special dash once in this game. If you manage to use it while successfully striking a difficult pose, you will continue to zoom off to the finish line at high speed. This game features Larry Koopa as a special guest!

    Tokyo 2020 Table Tennis

    Face off in a singles match or team up with your friend for a doubles match. Your avatar will move automatically, allowing you to fully dedicate your brain power to using a range of techniques. Build up your power to change the speed and spin of the ball.Zazz has infiltrated this game to take part as a guest character!

     

    Join in the Tokyo 2020 celebration fun with these new epic games!
