This Mario golf bag is somehow the best and worst thing we've ever seen

Buy two, in case you get a hole in one

Remember a couple of weeks ago when Satoru Iwata said Nintendo was open to expanding its character licensing business?

We do, because we covered it. And if it's going to result in a lot of odder things with Mario's face slapped onto it, then you can count us in.

Take this golf bag, for example. It's without a doubt one of the most garish things we've ever seen.

It's got more compartments than a cruise ship, with separate zipped pouches for you to store your clubs, shoes and balls. Golf balls, mind.

Had Tiger Woods been using this bag during his 'naughty spell' we're sure people would have been too busy staring at it to notice what he was up to.


Japanese site NariNari reports that the golf bag can be yours for the measly price of 48,500 - that's £283 or $473 to you.

Oh, and there's also a cap (sold separately), in case you've decided you don't look like enough of a knob yet.

In all seriousness, if we were golfers, we'd consider this an essential purchase, as it would serve the dual purpose of helping us declare our love for gaming and informing those around us that the concept of shame is alien to us.

If you'd like one of your own and are something of an expert in ordering things from Japanese online stores, you can buy the Mario golf bag from Enjoy! Caddie Bag Store.
