In this completely silly run of bite-sized features, we're going to write a new version of '12 Days of Christmas' with a Nintendo twist that will, hopefully, be good enough to sing.

Eight Malons Milking

The original line is "eight maids-a-milking", so our minds immediately turned to Lon Lon Milk and Malon, who plays a relatively important role in The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. Your suggestions were certainly considered, especially '8 Players Smashing', but we couldn't help but go a little retro once again.

So far, then, our song is as follows:

On the First day of Christmas Nintendo sent to me,
A big chair in a Pear Tree.

On the Second day of Christmas Nintendo sent to me,
Two Koopa Troopas
and a big chair in a Pear Tree

On the Third day of Christmas Nintendo sent to me,
Three angry cuccos
Two Koopa Troopas
and a big chair in a Pear Tree

On the Fourth day of Christmas Nintendo sent to me,
Four calling Chatots
Three angry cuccos
Two Koopa Troopas
and a big chair in a Pear Tree

On the Fifth day of Christmas Nintendo sent to me,
FIVE SONIC RINGS
Four calling Chatots
Three angry cuccos
Two Koopa Troopas
and a big chair in a Pear Tree

On the Sixth day of Christmas Nintendo sent to me,
Six Yoshis Laying
FIVE SONIC RINGS
Four calling Chatots
Three angry cuccos
Two Koopa Troopas
and a big chair in a Pear Tree

On the Seventh day of Christmas Nintendo sent to me,
Seven Cheep Cheeps Swimming
Six Yoshis Laying
FIVE SONIC RINGS
Four calling Chatots
Three angry cuccos
Two Koopa Troopas
and a big chair in a Pear Tree

On the Eighth day of Christmas Nintendo sent to me,
Eight Malons Milking
Seven Cheep Cheeps Swimming
Six Yoshis Laying
FIVE SONIC RINGS
Four calling Chatots
Three angry cuccos
Two Koopa Troopas
and a big chair in a Pear Tree
