2015 is officially here, and to celebrate Earth’s level-up Nintendo has released a pair of awesome coloring sheets for fans young and old. Both feature the company’s iconic mascot, Mario, wearing traditional Japanese garb, and come adorned with Japan’s version of “Happy New Year” – akemashite omedetou gozaimasu, kotoshi mo yoroshiku onegaishimasu (roughly translated as “We begin again, please continue to help me in the new year”).
It’s a nice gesture from Nintendo, a company that enjoyed a very successful 2014. Only time will tell if 2015 holds the same for the Big N, but for now you can crack out your crayons and give Mario a bit of color. You can print out both sheets here. Enjoy!
