Nintendo coming to LA Auto Show with West Coast Customs

Mario Kart

Earlier this week we learned that Nintendo will be attending the 2011 LA Auto Show next week, the first time a video game company is ever making an appearance at an automotive trade show. Of course, there were many speculations as to why – one being that Nintendo will be teaming up an OEM to offer in-car video game entertainment. Well, we’re sorry to say, that may not be the case.

The company today officially invited us to attend the press conference and at the event there will be an exclusive presentation by Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aime and special guest Ryan Friedlinghaus, founder and CEO of West Coast Customs.

The point is to “unveil an exclusive collaboration between the iconic gaming brand and one of the most recognized names in the custom automotive industry.”

We’re guessing some car will be tricked out with a bunch of Nintendo Wii fun – but we’re not sure why this wasn’t taken car of at SEMA earlier this month.
