If you saw some freak dressed as Mario walking past your house playing with your children wouldn't you think the same?
Hey have you guys ever been in the Nintendo Amusement Park in the USA? It's a physical-augmented reality amusement park which you play as Mario or Luigi and you can jump and squish Goombas in real life! You can even collect gold coins and punch power-up boxes!
