Now THIS is what a decorated veteran of the console wars looks like... pic.twitter.com/GB91MO0imf— blake j. harris (@blakejharrisNYC) October 21, 2014
Blake J. Harris, author of Console Wars: Sega, Nintendo, and the Battle that Defined a Generation, has shared another page of the 1993 Nintendo Character Guide that had us all so captivated back in August. This time he's given us a look at some vintage artwork of Toad who is also known as "Little Toadie". According to this completely true backstory of which there can be no doubt or deviation, Toad was visiting family in the Fungus Federation with the Koopa War broke out just prior to the original Super Mario Bros. adventure for the Nintendo Entertainment System. I don't know who exactly at Nintendo of America wrote these character blurbs, but I can say with confidence that he or she had the job I dreamed of doing when I was a kid. Come to think of it, I still kind of want that job!
