Nintendo started in the 19th century as a hanafuda maker. To this day, Nintendo still makes hanafuda cards in Japan. But is it making these Pokémon hanafuda cards?

As pointed out by Gigazine, a mysterious Pokémon hanafuda site just went up in Japan. The site states that more details will be made available on October 18.

There are Nintendo, Pokémon, and Game Freak copyrights at the bottom, so I'm assuming Nintendo is making these cards. At least, I hope it is.

Wouldn't it be awesome if that became a Nintendo Club reward to replace the Nintendo Hanafuda cards? Not because I want those really beautiful cards replaced, but because I'd like to have two different Nintendo sets.
