Nintendo Thinks Conan O'Brien Mario Homage Is "Great"

Now that we’ve seen how the Super Mario has helped shape Conan O’Brien’s Tonight Show backdrop, we had to get Nintendo’s reaction. We did.

“That’s great,” Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime said as he looked at it for the first time during his interview with Kotaku.

“We know that he is a fan of what we do, and we’re thrilled to have him as a passionate Nintendo fan. maybe we’ll have to go play some Wii Sports Resort as well as.”

So, no cease and desist, Reggie? ” No. For Conan, we’ll let that one slide.”
