Now that we've seen how Super Mario World's level design has helped shape Conan O'Brien's Tonight Show backdrop, we had to get Nintendo's reaction. We did.


"That's great," Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime said as he looked at it for the first time during his interview with Kotaku.

"We know that he is a fan of what we do, and we're thrilled to have him as a passionate Nintendo fan. Maybe we'll have to go play some Wii Sports Resort as well as Super Mario Bros Wii."

So, no cease and desist, Reggie?

"No. For Conan, we'll let that one slide."

Maybe this is more what the Conan people had in mind?
