Retro Gaming Collection: Nintendo

My best friend shares my passion for all things retro gaming, particularly Nintendo and is a huge fan and collector of the gaming giant’s memorabilia. He has allowed me to delve into his catalogue of goodies to share with you on this blog post.

The haul predominately features Nintendo heavyweights Super Mario and The Legend of Zelda, with a few extra gems thrown in for good measure.

His collection - comprising of rare sought-after collectibles - includes limited items that were once only available to high earning loyalty points customers from the now defunct Club Nintendo - both in the UK and Japan. There's boxed and sealed copies of retro games for a variety of Nintendo consoles from the yesteryear up to the present day, including the consoles themselves in a variant of limited colours, sizes and designs in mint condition, complete with the original packaging and manuals.

Among the vast haul there is the new and unused 32-bit table top Virtual Boy, a selection of vintage Game & Watch handhelds, the coveted Panasonic Q console collaboration between Nintendo & Panasonic and a rare NES deluxe pack which includes the R.O.B accessory to name just a few.

Other items pictured below include promotional trinkets such as the complete set of Japan only 8-bit Mario Pepsi lids, PR novelties and multi brand crossovers such as A Bathing Ape, Bape DS console and even a pair of Mario x Converse Chuck Taylor high-tops!

But my personal favourite? The copy of Super Mario Sunshine for the GameCube signed by Shigeru Miyamoto himself.

Warning! This is a picture heavy post, this will be the first of two posts showcasing the collection, I'll schedule the second for later in the week so remember to check back for a look at more awsome Nintendo rarities!

Check out part two here!

  1. Many of these games, I just could not complete as a child. But now I have enough free time, so I decided to download all these roms And I may say that it was fantastic, I really enjoyed it.
