Nintendo Australia have been heavily criticised for their shortcomings on the Australian Club Nintendo Store. It’s clear that they’re trying to rectify this. Firstly, they announced that the Luigi Diorama would be coming to the store in early 2014. Now out of nowhere, they have released a Commemorative Year of Luigi Coin and a Mario themed set of traditional Hanafuda cards.

The Year of Luigi Coin – Let’s celebrate The Year of Luigi and show Luigi some love with this special coin! Mark this special occasion by getting your hands on this gorgeous, gold-coloured commemorative coin.

30th Anniversary Luigi Coin
Hanafuda Cards – Own a piece of Nintendo history with this traditional Hanafuda card set. A protective case comes included with the card set. Each card features tastefully recreated Nintendo themed artwork. Hanafuda, meaning “flower cards,” is a traditional Japanese card game that dates back to the 1500s. It is said that the modern design of the card set was created in the mid 1700s. Nintendo started out as a manufacturer of Hanafuda cards in 1889.

    About time we get something awesome! I’d love both the coin and the diorama, but I’ll just wait for the diorama!
