French Nintendo historian Yamafuda has stumbled upon an interesting discovery. In 1966, Nintendo produced a toy called “Poï Tan”. This was unknown until today.

Koei Tecmo has worked with a number of Nintendo-related IPs in the past, including Pokemon, Zelda, and Fire Emblem. President Hisashi Koinuma also has his sights set on another franchise: Mario.

In an interview with Kotaku, Koinuma stated:

Yuji Naka was instrumental for the creation of Sonic. He programmed the very first game, and continued to work on the series – as well as SEGA projects – for over two decades.

Naka would eventually leave SEGA in 2006 to form his own studio Prope. Earlier this year, he joined Square Enix.
