Take a look at these amazingly adorable Super Mario toys that will be included in Japan's McDonald's Happy Meal equivalent, the Happy Set, beginning on November 22.

Two sets, which sadly in the year of Luigi are absent of Mario's green overall wearing brother, will both come in a special edition Christmas box that folds out to reveal a Christmas tree. Additionally, those who purchase the Happy Set on December 23 or 24 will get a special Mario themed dice game.

Now this is some poor eating I can get behind for the US. Buy a Happy Meal then get an awesome toy like the good old days; who could resist? I mean its like a million times better than stuffing your face with Taco Bell or guzzling down Slurpees till ones body explodes to, maybe, win a new console. 

Am I right... yeah I'm right.

Check out these Lightning Returns-themed Japanese snacks

Square Enix sent a little holiday gift to my office this week. They're trying to make me fat, it seems. In Japan, there's a strong tie between game marketing and snack food, so you often see game-themed snack food on conveni...more

Japan has a Dark Souls-themed cafe

I've always fancied going to a gaming-themed eatery but there's a shocking lack of them where I live (wonder if I can get planning permission to build my own Deus Ex pub?). That's no issue in Japan, where Siliconera is report...more
