If you travel through Kansai International Airport in Osaka, you will soon be greeted by Nintendo characters everywhere. Because Japan. Beginning on June 23, Nintendo is setting up a special check-in area at the airport’s Terminal 1 with Switch, 3DS, and smart device titles. Beat your jet lag by playing a quick game.
Aside from that, the airport will also display some huge Nintendo banners and the elevators will also be decked out with Super Mario characters, making it look as if they are riding the elevators. You have to admit, it looks like it would make travelling more fun and bring a smile to visitors’ faces. After all, who doesn’t love Super Mario?
You know who I didn’t see in any of these images? Bob-omb. Yeah, that guy is not welcomed in airports. Discrimination, that’s what that is.
