As we all know, Nintendo started out making playing cards - Hanafuda cards, to be precise - and although the company's focus has changed over the years, it has maintained a link with its past by producing special Hanafuda packs.

The latest set is possibly the most visually alluring yet, and uses classic Super Mario characters to great effect. The catch is that it's only available in Japan, where it costs 2700 yen (£14 / $22 / 20 Euros).

If you're willing to import then that shouldn't present too much of an issue, and there's a good chance Nintendo might make this pack available via its new rewards programme.
