Nintendo Super Mario Bros Costume Hoodie Zip-Up Sweatshirt Review

Posted by Anthony Mango Monday, September 22, 2014
September 23rd will be the 125th anniversary of Nintendo (more specifically, since Fusajiro Yamauchi founded Nintendo Koppai on September 23, 1889, which was originally a production company for playing cards rather than the video game juggernaut it is today).

In honor of this occasion, TV Store Online is selling special Nintendo-themed hoodies exclusive to their shop based on four of the iconic video game characters: Mario, Luigi, Wario from the Super Mario Bros series and Link from the Legend of Zelda series.

I was able to get my hands on one of these (I chose Luigi as that guy doesn't get as much credit as he deserves, even if he saves Peach) and I was very pleased with the outcome. These hoodies are not knockoffs or cheaply made—the officially licensed Nintendo product stamp should be an indicator of that alone. They represent the true colors and the spirit of the characters they embody.

Not only are they comfortable, but they are also a fun way to express your geek cred and love for your favorite of the characters. The top of the hoodie is fashioned to look like each character's trademark cap (except Link, of course, who isn't cool enough to have a green hat with an L on it, as that's Luigi's territory), which is a nice little addition to help it stand out more as the character rather than just being the overalls.

Luigi product description:
Have you ever wanted to be just like Mario's brother? He may not have been the main hero, but that doesn't mean he isn't one of the coolest Nintendo characters of all time! If you want to show some love for Luigi, check out this officially licensed Nintendo hoodie. Featuring his overalls and green suit with the "L" logo on top of the hood, this Luigi hoodie should please just about any fan of the notable sidekick. Let the world know who your favorite video game character is with this awesome Super Mario hoodie!
So if you're interested in picking one of these up, head on over to TV Store Online and embrace the anniversary of the undisputed king of the gaming industry.
