If you’ve been lucky enough to visit Nintendo’s famous store in Tokyo (or even just watched hundreds of videos of other people who visit it on YouTube rather than us), you will no doubt have seen the four statues that proudly adorn the floor of the store.
Mario, Link, Isabelle and an Inkling can all be seen on large podiums in the center of the store – the four characters serve as the store’s mascots, often used in its logos and even plastered all over the store’s windows. Now Nintendo is giving you the option to take these statues home. Type of.
Starting this weekend, store visitors will be able to pick up miniature versions of all four statues, either separately or in a pack. They’re available for 7,150 yen each (about $65 / £46), or 28,600 yen for all four in a special box (about $260 / £187).
