Nintendo to offer official merchandise via Online Store

Nintendo is starting to make use of its popular franchises by selling more than games on its online store.

As of today store.nintendo.co.uk will not only provide customers with the opportunity to purchase official figurines, accessories, clothing and game guides.

Launching with over 170 new merchandise lines, items to buy will include both exclusives and items previously only available outside of Europe.

Here's what Nintendo has to say about its goods:

Figurines – as of today, Zelda fans will be able to purchase a selection of figurines including two limited edition figurines; a seventeen inch figurine of Link on Epona and a twenty-three inch Ganondorf figurine. Metroid fans will also have the choice of two Official Nintendo Online Store exclusives; a nine and a half inch Samus Zero Suit figurine and the twelve inch Metroid Prime gunship figurine. Also available from today is an exclusive 15 inch Tanooki Mario figurine, the exclusive version features an additional red scarf and Tanooki Leaf on its own Question Mark Box Base

Console accessories - whether you’re looking for an exclusive case for your Nintendo 3DS XL, a case for your game cartridges or the red or green Wii U Mario Kart Wheel previously only available in Japan, the Official Nintendo Online Store has accessories to choose from which will enhance your gaming experience or protect your console.

Clothing and Apparel – initially focusing on four key Nintendo franchises - Mario, Luigi, The Legend of Zelda and Donkey Kong – the Official Nintendo Online Store Clothing and Apparel category will launch with a selection of items including Bags, Hats, Keyrings, Wallets, T-shirts, Socks and Hoodies

Game Guides – Stuck on a certain level? As of today a selection of game guides will be available including Animal Crossing: New Leaf, New Super Bros. 2, Pikmin 3, The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds and Mario Kart 8 as well as many others.

“We’re excited to be adding Merchandise to the Official Nintendo Online Store offering,” comments John Donnellan, Head of Ecommerce at Nintendo UK. “We’re often asked why Limited Edition or Official items aren’t available in the UK, so it’s great to be able to offer fans a hub for purchasing them. We’re looking forward to being able to broaden this selection by adding further limited edition and exclusive items to the site over the coming months.”

Are you excited about buying some Mario related goods?

Dunno why it says today as most of this was up last week :/ But there is a lot of cool stuff on there, its just ranging from too much Mario (I like Mario but don't really need 20 T-Shirts) to overpriced guides to Expensive statues. Maybe if they started putting physical versions of some of the OSTs I'll pick some stuff up.

That's pretty awesome but I bet it's dearer on the WiiU than it is in the shops
