Proof that Japanese 7-Elevens are cooler than those elsewhere

On Oct. 28, Nintendo will release--in Japan only, of course--a Super Mario Bros. 25th Anniversary DSi system. This limited edition system (below left) will be sold exclusively at 7-Eleven convenience stores--yes, you read that correctly--for ¥14,800 (about $177).

Considering the brass at Nintendo of America have yet to announce how they (and we) will be celebrating the 25th anniversary of Super Mario Bros., I guess it's possible this system--and this similarly branded DSi LL--will make it to the States at some point, but I certainly wouldn't hold my breath waiting for it to happen.

American 7-11s have better coffee and food though. If you wanna buy candy, weird drinks, or hardcore porno mags / videos, Japanese 7-11s are the place to be.

Thanks for sharing, Jeff. It's interesting to hear about the differences between the 7-11s in Japan and the US :)
