Sorry, but we had to post this. GoNintendo’s published what has to be the most pathos-heavy games-related image yet created. It’s of “Mario” and “Peach” sitting in the middle of an Irish street to celebrate the launch of the game over the water. It’s stuff like this that gets us up in the morning. And has us staring at the ceiling in the middle of the night.
