Just peachy

Update: Well, who knew? As has helpfully been pointed out to us, it's actually National Peach Month — as in the fruit — and Nintendo appears to be jumping on the bandwagon with this announcement.

Original story: Nintendo sure loves its themed time periods — who could forget the Year of Luigi — and now the company has revealed that August is officially the Month of Peach in North America.

It's not known if Nintendo has any special events planned to celebrate the event, but this is as good an excuse as any to crack out that copy of Super Princess Peach on the DS and pay tribute to one of the downright nicest royals in the Mushroom Kingdom.
