Jul
18

Nintendo debuted a video series called Cat Mario Show on the European eShop yesterday, and it's more than a little strange. It's meant to be a show for children to help them learn more about Nintendo games, but it comes off as something closer to what a serial killer comes up with in his basement after getting his hands on Mario and Peach puppets and cat suits.
