My Super Mario 3D World OST arrived from Club Nintendo today! Surprisingly fast delivery considering I only ordered it last Friday (it took 3 working days to show up!). The presentation is fantastic, with notes from the composers about every track inside the booklet. This 77-track OST is one not to be missed, so if you have 3,000 stars on the European Club Nintendo, order it before they’re all gone!
Nintendo included its HQ building in this company guide ⊟
Before Mario posted photos from Nintendo’s beautiful company guide book for 2013, including these shots for a fold-out section. The pages mimic the drab, window-dominated exterior of Nintendo’s headquarters in Kyoto, Japan.
What’s great is you can prop the book up and pull the pages out to form the cube building. And you can peek over the top at what goes on behind those boring windows, to see employees having fun at work, creating colorful and exciting games. Check out the cartridge art prototypes!
The photos also showcase another point Nintendo is emphasizing lately — that the company is striving to create a gender-diverse workplace. I’d love to get a hold of one of these books, but Nintendo only hands them out to potential employees who pass the company’s initial application process. Via Sergio!
