Nintendo has been around forever and has more or less comfortably settled into a house style for its characters. Every now and then, there is a slight deviation, such as with games like Luigi’s Mansion, Donkey Kong Country Returns, or Mario & Luigi. But when it comes to Nintendo’s outward image and its marketing assets, those characters haven’t changed in years. If someone picks up a game like Mario Party or Mario Tennis, they know what to expect from each character. In other cases, some Nintendo characters that are more off on the side are in desperate need of rebranding.
