The Mario Hanafuda deck is a deck of Japanese playing cards known as hanafuda. It was introduced during the 30th Anniversary of Super Mario Bros. The illustrations on the cards, including the ones on the inner box, are derived from the currently produced "President" set, which has been Nintendo's flagship brand of traditional hanafuda for over a century.[1] Red- and black-decked versions of Mario Hanafuda were later made available on the My Nintendo Store in Europe on June 16, 2020,[2] along with postcards based on them.[3]

Illustrations on the cards[edit]

In the Mario Hanafuda deck, all of the cards' traditional illustrations have been modified with elements from the Mario universe. Furthermore, a close inspection of the illustration reveals that a new printing method has been used with respect to the one used in the Club Nintendo Hanafuda. Another important aspect is that now some months follow a theme (although others are mixes of miscellaneous enemies, power ups and the Mario Bros. themselves):
