The crimson and black Lite we should have received

iQue Limited is at it again. After last month's Super Mario 64 DS Lite, Nintendo's distributor for China has come up with this drool-worthy reworking of the senior crimson and black Lite that the U.S. and Japan received earlier this year. With its laser-etched dragons and deep red hue, it's one highly desirable piece of kit, but we'd advise you don't hold your breath for a release outside China.

As you dwell with us on how life is so terribly unfair, click past the break for more shots.

Limited Edition Super Mario 64 DS Lite shows up in China

If it seems odd for iQue Limited, Nintendo's distribution arm in the People's Republic, to issue Super Mario 64-branded DS Lites so long after the game's release, keep in mind that the ported game didn't officially arrive in China until just this past August. We thought that was strange, too!

This limited edition Gloss Silver handheld boasts laser-etched engravings of Mario and the game's logo positioned arbitrarily on its lid. Mario looks like he's about to straight-up punch that star in the back of its head, doesn't he? Why would Mario want to punch a star? We've got the answer to that question*, plus more photos of the DS Lite and its packaging, past the post break.

*This is a lie.

It's the year of the ... Game Boy Advance SP?

Nintendo's Chinese operation, iQue, has released some very cool Game Boy Advance SP systems that may make you rethink your need for an SP and your impression of the Chinese gaming market, where you can apparently get very cool systems that aren't hilarious knockoffs.

While it's possible these are old, we have a suspicion that the Year of the Dog system is recent as of this year, at least. There's also a two-tone Mario edition, and a very cool dragon system that uses the black/red case design from the Boktai GBA. Some of these are available online at amazingly high prices, so we're stuck playing games on our stupid DS Lites.

Chinese AC adapter charges your Ninetudo DS

Knockoff electronics are always good for an easy laugh, and this AC adapter is no exception to that rule. Cory Doctorow (of Boing Boing fame) recently spotted the above "Ninetudo DS" charger at a Buy Now shop in Beijing, China. The product's packaging brings up a few questions:
  1. What happened to the upper half of the DS logo's S?
  2. Why is there a photo of a butterfly on the handheld's top screen? And why isn't there anything pictured on the bottom touchscreen?
  3. With this product being manufactured and sold in China, shouldn't there be some sort of iQue branding?
  4. Was "Ninetudo" seriously the best they could come up with?
