Even though Zelda has killing and even Mario has head-stomping, when you think about it, nearly all of Nintendo's first-party properties are harmless affairs. Bright colours, innocent storylines, big-eyed cartoon mascots and candy-coloured fantasy worlds where everything turns out just fine.
Nintendo's turn-based wargame Advance Wars works well as a video game. But as a board game? Yeah, looks like it works pretty well as a board game, too.
