Moleskine -– the Italian paper products maker based in Milan, best known for their designer notebooks, diaries, planners, and other luxury paper products and accompanying accessories, has teamed up with Nintendo to release a limited edition series of “Super Mario Brothers” themed notebooks and accessories.
What’s more, according to Moleskine products marketing team, the series will feature classic Famicon-platform 8-bit designs to look like actual game-screens of Mario, Luigi and gang from the well-loved classic game – quoting them “to show our love and respect for the game”.
Pictured above from the left, the small-size lime-green notebook will be made to model the classic Nitendo Gameboy console and will be retailing at JPY 2,300. There will be two designs of the large-size notebooks, both featuring Mario in his signature jumping motion. These will retail at JPY 3,300 each. On the far right is the other pocket-size notebook modelled to look like the NES game cartridge, and this too will retail at JPY 2,300.
Besides the four different notebooks in the series, there is also an iPhone case in striking red colour (pictured above, centre). This will retail at JPY 4,000. Also part of the series but not pictured is the limited edition “Super Mario Roll-top Backpack” retailing at JPY 23,100.
