    Official: This is why Nintendo's going to the LA Auto Show

    Filed under: Aftermarket, LA Auto Show, Toys/Games


    We were intrigued when we learned that Nintendo is holding a press conference at next week's LA Auto Show. Why would The House That Mario Built be hanging around an auto show? What sort of tie-in could Nintendo with have four wheels?

    It was fun to speculate, but a press release issued today might clear things up. Nintendo of America President COO Reggie Fils-Aime and founder of West Coast Customs, Ryan Friedlinghaus, will be appearing on stage together during the second press day of the LA Auto Show to unveil an "exclusive collaboration" between their two companies.

    The easy guess is that they're going to unveil a Nintendo-themed custom car of some sort. More specifically, Mario Kart 7 for the Nintendo 3DS is launching on December 4th, so perhaps West Coast Customs will be pimping the Italian plumber's ride.

    If that's it, color us disappointed. We'd be surprised if Nintendo is going to all this trouble just to unveil a crazy custom car with WCC. We're still holding out hope that the announcement is more substantial, perhaps involving a consumer product of some sort.

    We'll let you know what we find when Nintendo takes the stage next Thursday.Continue reading This is why Nintendo's going to the LA Auto Show
