ONM Remembered – #343

“Sometimes we’ll want to ask you about Nintendo Official Magazine.”


from Official Nintendo Magazine issue 78 (March 1999)

More terrifying/charming mascot costumes urging you to buy a subscription! I admit the Mario one has grown me a bit since last time – there’s a slightly kooky Frank Sidebottom vibe about it, a friendly and unassuming feel to it. The permanently agape mouth is a cute touch.
