…Nintendo loves color?


As Nintendo evolved, so did its color palette. When the original NES launched in 1985, it drew from a palette of just 53 colors. Now, with the release of the Wii, games can choose between 16.7 million colors, and are capable of mimicking the colors found in the real world. COLOURlovers’ article is an interesting examination of Nintendo through the ages (and colors), and is a great read for game heads and history buffs alike.

…Nintendo makes a Monopoly for the gamer in you?

Nintendo Monopoly

Monopoly and Nintendo have combined forces and created Nintendo Monopoly, the classic board game but with a Mario twist. The board features some of Nintendo’s most popular characters, including Mario, Donkey Kong, Zelda, Metroid, Kirby, Star Fox and Wario. Plus, the pewter game pieces are modeled after a Donkey Kong barrel, Link’s boots, a Hylian Shield, an NES controller, Mario’s hat, and a Koopa shell. It’ll makes you want to be an eight-year-old tyrannical monopolist all over again, buying up everything you land on until the other players have no choice but to concede a shameful defeat.
