The very first Badge Arcade sticker book is here! And by here, I mean in my eager hands at the Nintendo Inquirer headquarters. I’ve been itching to flip through the glorious 32 pages of Badge Arcade sticker goodness ever since the book was announced for a release in Japan, so I’m incredibly psyched to be able to share a couple photos and a video showcasing this adorable piece of Nintendo memorabilia with you now.

Before I get too ahead of myself, I’ll give you an idea of what’s in store for you, if you decide to order the sticker book on Amazon.

I’ll be honest: I was a tad bit disappointed to find the book to be as small as it is. Sitting at approximately 5.5 inches in height and 4 inches wide, the book is only slightly bigger than my hand. Even so, the stickers aren’t super tiny like I expected them to be when I first glanced at the book, so all in all, I’m pretty happy with the product. There’s a nice selection of the usual characters from games I usually find waiting for me during my daily Badge Arcade visit. The pages are filled to the brim with Mario Bros., Mario Kart 8, 8-bit Mario, Animal Crossing, Zelda, Splatoon, Swapnote, and the famous Arcade Bunny himself– all very familiar badges in sticker form. I’ve got to admit: It’s cool seeing these once-virtual items come to life for both “practical” and fun use.
