The diskun items auctions just ended, totalling ¥269.500 (US$ 2450)
The Famicom Disk System (ファミリーコンピュータ ディスクシステム) is the only Nintendo console / peripheral that has it's own mascotte: Diskun (ディスくん). Just spotted a bunch of (rare) Diskun merchandise on Yahoo Auctions, including a hand bag, coasters and bento boxes. Hyoi!

Another one of the WarioWare Nintendo classics microgames is based on the 1969 Nintendo board game "Destiny Game"
Replying to @mjpingram
Ah yes, it is indeed called Destiny Game (運命ゲーム). A bit similar the Game of Life, but more focused on vocation and profession.

Some more work done on the Nintendo beforemario collection today. Added lights to most cabinets now. Small tweaks to contents of displays next, then on to playing cards section. How do you like the result so far?

Modern graphics are great, but I still get wowed by Mode 7 effects in games. Like, this will never get old to me:

Nintendo has a long history of honouring its past toys and games, and the WarioWare series is king in this respect. The latest entry Get It Together includes a microgame based on the 1972 Nintendo eleconga! (WarioWare screencapture by GameXplain)
