[UPDATE] We’re thrilled to announce that the current bid for this fantastic item is already at $1,750! The overwhelming support and generosity from the gaming community/industry have blown us away.

A Remarkable Journey

Let’s take a moment to reflect on the incredible story behind this unique item. Our founder, a lifelong gaming enthusiast, attended the Game Audio Network Guild ceremony back in 2007. It was at this event that they had the extraordinary opportunity to meet some of the biggest names in gaming, including the legendary Shigeru Miyamoto, Koji Kondo, Charles Martinet, Eiji Aonuma, and Martin Leung.

A Cherished Keepsake

Our founder, caught up in the excitement and awe of the moment, asked each luminary to sign their Nintendo DS. This cherished keepsake became a symbol of their passion for gaming and a treasured memory of that unforgettable experience. As years went by and our founder’s career in the gaming industry flourished, they realized the significant impact they could make by parting with this precious item.
