Nintendo 3DS Finally Revealed

Nintendo recently revealed the latest DS system, the 3DS. Every gamer I've talked to is excited about this latest handheld one way or another. Yours truly can't wait either. Mario Kart on 3D? Sign me up! I could talk on and on about it here, but it would be best if I point you to Nintendo 3DS Games, a blog dedicated to the Nintendo 3DS system.
As if Okamiden for the Nintendo DS is not adorable enough, Capacom decided to offer this pair of Okami mugs designed with Chibiterasu and Amaterasu, the original protagonist in Okami.

As you can see from the image above, the mug changes color when you pour hot liquid in, preferably oolong tea. The page on Capcom also offers different Okami/Okamiden collectibles such as shirts, DVD, books, and soundtrack.

Mario Trump Cards are made of AWESOME

 Fun fact: did you know that Nintendo has its humble beginnings producing playing cards back in 1889? Well, recently they decided to give cards another go by offering three sets of "Mario Trump" playing cards.

There's the "Dot" deck which features pixelated Mario characters; the "Standard" deck sports hand-drawn Mario artwork; and the "Neon" deck with 3D Mario characters that we're all seeing lately. Each deck is sold at around $12.00.

My favorite would have to be the "Dot" deck. What's yours?
