Top Mario Coin Collectors Get This Trophy

A gold jumping Mario to add to your trophy shelf.


Nintendo is holding its big Mario national tournament over the coming months. Participants will face off in coin collecting battles using New Super Mario Bros. Wii.

So what do you get for being Japan's best coin collector? Nintendo revealed the top prize today:

That's an image of the trophy that Nintendo will be giving as a prize to the national champion.

The text at the bottom says "New Super Mario Bros. Wii Coin Battle Japan Number One Championships," then in bigger lettering, "Japan Number One."

Maybe if the tournament does well, Nintendo will expand it into a worldwide thing and crown the world number one.

The New Super Mario Bros. Wii Coin Battle tournament will kick off on February 14 in Osaka and tour Japan until arriving in Tokyo for the final championship event on March 27. The tournament will offer battle royal and two-on-two team play.

You can see specific scheduling info and rules at the official tournament site.
