Everyone here at Nintendo Wire wants to give back to the amazing Nintendo community, and one way we’d like to do that is by starting a new tradition. Every month, our team will create a unique wallpaper for both desktops and mobile devices. You’ll be able to decorate your devices with fun images and photos of your favorite games and characters, and swap them out every few weeks (should you choose to do so)!

We’re kicking off this new tradition by featuring the beloved Pokémon Red & Blue and Donkey Kong games because of their recent inductions in the Video Game Hall of Fame at The Strong’s National Museum of Play. April’s wallpaper showcases treasured characters from each game in all their pixel glory so you, too, can celebrate the happy occasion.

Credit for the creation of these wallpapers goes to the very talented Tom Brown!

Designer and writer by day, gamer by night, Lauren dreams big when it comes to creative endeavors. Perhaps that's why she's taken on the roles of creative director and managing editor for Nintendo Wire. If she had a video game superhero alias, it might just be The Visionary, a true keeper of imaginative order.
