Rummaging through your basement to look back over old goodies can be a wonderful experience - you should see some of the relics we have knocking about at Nintendo Life HQ - and can sometimes reunite you with things long forgotten. One such basement search has uncovered this Nintendo calendar from 1991, and some of the designs seem a little strange.

The calendar has been shared online by Reddit user u/Otakulad, who notes that it has been buried in their parents' basement for the last 28 years. The front cover (seen up above) depicts some of Nintendo's best-known characters in intriguingly different styles - we're not really sure what's going on with Samus, for example - but the back cover reveals that this was officially licenced by Nintendo of America.

The owner has actually shared images of every single month of the calendar, revealing some pretty creative designs that are nicely themed throughout. We've included a couple of our favourite pages below, but you can check out the entire gallery here if you're interested.

Just by coincidence, the days of each week from 1991 happen to line up perfectly with 2019, meaning that the calendar could actually be used this year without any issues. If you happen to have one of these lying around in your attic, or perhaps if you fancy having a search through eBay, you too can treat yourself to a retro Nintendo year.

What do you think? Are you a fan of the designs? Let us know in the comments.
