Calling all collectors, calling all collectors! Nintendo made a couple of new announcements about upcoming products and partnerships, and we are here to keep you in the know.
Also, with such amazing work being done on craft-maker haven, Etsy, we are deciding to show some non-licensed craft work which every collector may want around.

Nintendo is teaming up with McDonalds to promote fitness!

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time N64 Soap Cartridge
Put gamer stereotypes about proper hygiene to rest with Digitalsoap’s new Legend of Zelda soap cartridge. This replica soap makes for an awesome parody or gag gift to your gaming friends, but is also just plain awesome.
And if you are not a Zelda fan (gasp), check out the other selections of soaps Digitalsoaps has to offer. They hold a range of different cartridges and games, for the more diverse tastes.
Animal Crossing: New Leaf Locket
Do you have a special someone in your life that is addicted to Animal Crossing? Let them know you care with CapturedMySoul’s locket, prominently displaying the New Leaf logo. The beautiful 33mm locket can be filled with special momentos, be it a picture of someone or a racy photo of Isabelle.
The locket comes in a bronze or silver option, with a chain length of 16″ to 28″.
Yoshi Watercolor Print
MSRP: $10.00 – $60.00
As we all get ready for Yoshi’s NEW Island to drop, consider tiling your walls with the little green monster. I’m speaking specifically of PascalProduction’s watercolor print, taking a more mature and artistic spin on the beloved character.
The print is hand painted, signed, and comes in a variety of sizes (ranging from 5″ x 7″ to 24″ x 30″).
Super Nintendo Apple TV Decal
Are you a classic gamer that has a passion for Apple products? No? Just me? Well if you are, make sure to check out killerduckdecals’s killer iTV decal, transforming your TV’s apple fixture into a piece of nostalgia.
Dictionary-Paper Shigeru Miyamoto Quote Art
Speaking of things to hang on the wall, how about a dictionary page? Well, not just any dictionary page, but one with designs by indiefrogstudios quoting Nintendo’s own Miyamoto.
The prints are 7″ x 10″, and yes, they will make you look hipster.
It’s Dangerous to Go Alone! Decal
Have you been looking to add some 8-bit flair to your home? Well how about adding this cheeky decal above your coat hooks!
Produced by InAnotherCastleDecor, the decal comes in either black or white and 11″ long.
Legend of Zelda Triforce Lamp
Last, but certainly not least, is Plasmatorium’s Triforce bedside lamp. Certainly not cheap, the lamp is acrylic and made to order. 9″ on all sides and running off a night-light bulb (E12), the Triforce makes a terrific edition to any gamer’s bedroom.
Along the edges of the lamp are the Hyrule Kingdom insignia as well as rupees.. If anyone is looking to get me a birthday present… cough cough.
So there you have it, some of Etsy’s best and brightest when it comes to Nintendo wares! Are you planning on picking something up? Did I miss anything? Let me know!
