Ever want to chat with those legendary brothers from Nintendo one on one?  You know, those heroic plumbers from Super Mario World?  Well, not exactly one on one, but close enough! 

Mario in Real Time, also known as (MIRT) has officially arrived at the Nintendo World Store in Rockefeller Center.

Mario in Real Time is an interactive system that was introduced by Nintendo back in 1992.  It’s original purpose was to be used at trade shows all over the globe. MIRT displays Mario on a screen, through which he can talk to his excited fans who are standing in front of the unit. 

What would you say if you didn't have to travel to a trade show or to Super Mario World to be up close and personal with the Nintendo characters you grew up with? Wish no more!

Nintendo of America called on Tangram to design and build a permanent MIRT system at their flagship store, Nintendo World, in NYC.   Our team wanted to create a concept that went with the overall theme inside the store.  Something that was simple, yet exclusive.

This past weekend Luigi (aka LIRT) stopped by to say hello to promote the launch of his most recent title, Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon.

If you’re in the NYC area, be sure to pop in and say hello to Mario or Luigi!  But do check Nintendo World's calendar of events before getting your hopes up.  The system is only up and running during specific times (www.nintendoworldstore.com) 

Keeping our fingers crossed for a WIRT (Wario in Real Time), PIRT (Peach in Real Time) or even a TIRT (Toad in Real Time)!
