Nintendo making strides in Korea

Over at 4 Color Rebellion, writer (and Seoul resident) N Rumas tells us of a nation's ability to love Nintendo again. In riding the train, he reports of daily sightings where people are enjoying the DS and Brain Age, as well as seeing the handheld plentifully stocked at local retail outlets. He even reports of a friend, who owns a shop, enjoying a boost in business.

Now, with the release of New Super Mario Bros. this week, sales in the region for Nintendo should skyrocket that much further. With the universal appeal and popularity of Nintendo's plumber mascot, the game should sell very strongly upon release.
