Super Mario-themed chairs created by X Rocker and Nintendo

Gaming chair company X Rocker has teamed up with Nintendo to create a series of Super Mario-themed gaming chairs. The chairs will launch in the UK and the EU on August 1st.

What are the X Rocker and Nintendo gaming chairs like?

X Rocker says that its chairs offer "an exciting and colorful selection" of your favorite Super Mario characters as part of its new gaming chair range. The X Rocker Super Mario Collections will feature a number of different characters from the franchise including Mario, Luigi, Peach, Yoshi, and Bowser. Those characters will be available on Nintendo-themed variants of the X Rocker Video Rocker chair. According to X Rocker, there will be four different collections available. They don't say exactly what will be included in each collection, but here's a sneak preview:

  • The Spotlight Collection (exclusive to Argos in the UK)
  • The Jump Collection (exclusive to Smyths Toys in the UK and the EU)
  • The Joy Collection
  • The All-Star Collection

X Rocker also says there's a new audio-enabled gaming chair on the way as part of its partnership with Nintendo. The 2.1 Stereo Audio Gaming Chair featuring Super Mario will be launching as three unique designs and will be available via Argos and Smyths Toys, as well as distribution via Exertis. Managing director Gary Shaw says these collections are "just the start" and that the two companies have "even more to come". We'll doubtless learn more about these chairs as we near the launch date. In the meantime, you can visit the official X Rocker website if you want to keep up with the latest developments.
