Nintendo has had a long and varied history in gaming, so much so that many of its franchises have produced internationally renowned characters. Fans from all over the world have created new kinds of art to honor their dedication to Nintendo. This post features a series of Nintendo amigurumi, which means “cute yarn things” when translated from its original Japanese. The figures are crocheted and require skill and dedication.

Many people who practice the art of amigurumi also sell their creations on shops like Etsy. If you’re keen on purchasing some of the things you see below, you can head over there and search the video games category to see if anything is available. Let us know which are your favorites in the comments below!

    That’s really cool. It’s always cool seeing N-All Stars in various forms of art. I wish I hadn’t stopped drawing. I’m finding my groove again and hopefully one day I can show my love to these beloved N-All Stars.

    Why are you talking about this? Isn’t F-Zero coming to the eShop today for 30 cents?

      I’m looking forward to the Monster Hunter demo myself… I played F-Zero alot as a kid, but I didn’t think it was as great as a game as people make it out to be.

  • I love that fat Tanooki Mario. Some of these are amazing, and I need to get better at crochet so I can make them!

  • Would’ve been cool if these were the new Club Nintendo rewards.
