The lights are on
Super Mario Bros. 3 is widely considered one of the best platformers of all-time, and we at GI loved it enough to dedicate an entire Super Replay to it (Reiner still owes me a sandwich thanks to a bet in that one, by the way). A Nintendo fan named Chris Covell stumbled upon a Japanese picture book from 1989, and he was surprised to find numerous pictures dedicated to the development of the NES classic.
Take a look at the link below for the pictures, which show off Shigeru Miyamoto's desk and sweet chair, as well as many other behind-the-scenes shots of Nintendo.

Awesome find, it's great how little things we find could actually be of great value.
Who says reading is for losers? This is AWESOME.
Incredible! This is a great look back into the history of video games and the history of a gaming icon. Growing up with the NES and seeing something like this is classic nostalgia.
Have Reiner buy a Waluigi.
I love these pics.
I love it. PS. Why don't you have Reiner serve you in OverBlood2?
Wow. It's cool to see what Nintendo was like back then
