Every parent dreams that the endless hours their kids spend playing video games will one day pay off in a lucrative career, and in Japan a pipedream like that now has some real potential! Capcom is introducing this 4-player arcade machine there that’s based on the New Super Mario Bros. game for the Nintendo Wii. Players are rewarded with ‘medals’ that can presumably be cashed in for prizes or other real world items, but don’t get too excited if you’re a Super Mario Bros. master. Instead of racing through actual levels from the game, players compete in Super Mario themed casino-like games including slots and such. So it won’t be putting those hard-earned goomba stomping skills to good use.
