NORTH BEND, Wash.–(BUSINESS WIRE)– With the busy holiday season approaching, Nintendo of America was looking to find new ways to improve speed and efficiency at its always-busy distribution facility in North Bend, Wash. In the past, the company has tried a number of solutions, including having Donkey Kong™ roll packages down a set of girders into waiting trucks or expediting deliveries through warp pipes.

This year one of the suggested innovations included the use of wind-up Mini Mario toys. These tireless mechanical toys are featured in Mario vs. Donkey Kong™: Mini-Land Mayhem!, a new game launching for the Nintendo DS™ family of systems on Nov. 14.

Initially the use of the helpful Mini Marios seemed like a good idea. Unfortunately, they were not guided appropriately and soon marched non-stop throughout the entire building, climbing girders, riding conveyor belts and causing a bit of mayhem. They overran Nintendo’s facility for a short time, but operations have since been returned to normal.

Over the weekend, the Nintendo World Store hosted a party for the 25th anniversary of Super Mario Bros. Shigeru Miyamoto was in attendance, as was Andrew Gardikis, a fan who has previously executed successful speed runs for the game. Gardikis once again attempted a speed run on Sunday, though there was, naturally, more pressure this time around. Unfortunately, he was unable to complete it, but at least it seems everyone has a great time! You can check out more pictures from the event here.
