bonuses these days usually exist in the digital world, normally encompassing character skins,
exclusive multiplayer maps, and golden weapons. Lately, getting something extra
that exists in the real world when you put money down for a game is pretty
rare, and when it happens it’s worth noting. That’s why we took notice of
Gamestop’s offer of an adorable Tanooki Mario keychain for preordering Super
Mario 3D Land (we’re still getting used to that name).
Though Gamestop has its
detractors, you can’t deny that the keychain looks cute, even if it just looks
like a cut-out of some official art for the game. The preorder bonus is
available for online customers as well as to in-store buyers, so if you’d
rather avoid a pushy cashier telling you to preorder 50 other games, you have that digital option. Supplies on the keychain are limited, and obviously
you have to put your money down before Super Mario 3D Land hits stores November
While you wait, why not enjoy
some new character art from the game Nintendo just released today? It’s pretty
darn cute, if you ask us.
