Nintendo have a way with merchandise of late. Not only did the Super Mario Bros. Movie receive a fantastic fire-breathing Bowser figure, but now a series of special edition Mario bomber jackets are bringing style to the streets.
These officially licensed Mario bomber jackets come in five varieties. Mario leads the way, of course, and Luigi also gets a look-in for once. Peach and Bowser also feature. The former has an awesome piece of sketch art subtly placed in the lower corner, the latter is of course darker in tone. Finally, there’s a Super Mario branded bomber jacket, which also features Toad and Yoshi.
This bomber jacket is a special edition only available via Amazon. Designed by IMLDesigns, these special edition Mario bomber jackets are sure to be in high demand. However, there’s one caveat. They’re only available in child sizes.
Cue a solitary tear from all Super Mario fans of a more adult stature.
It’s not all doom-and-gloom, however. In addition to the Mario bomber jackets, a new series of Super Mario themed baseball caps has been launched. These high quality embodied baseball caps depict the emblems of Mario and Luigi, but also Wario and – wait, say what now?! – yes, Waluigi. I never thought I’d see the day…
New Mario Games for 2023
Of course, these new fashion items couldn’t have come at a better time. With 2023 proving Mario still has what it takes to break records across the globe, there’s a selection of new Super Mario games also set to be released.
First up is Super Mario Bros. Wonder, coming in October. The game is billed as ‘the next evolution of 2D side-scrolling Super Mario Bros. games’. I mean, it had to happen sometime, right? Following this we have WarioWare: MOVE IT! at the start of November, and the long awaited Super Mario RPG remake mid-November.
