Limited edition Nintendo DS up for auction to raise funds for the Red Cross

If there’s one thing great about the gaming community, it’s their ability to raise funds for limited edition memorabilia. And when in times of need, it can only be a good thing. Game Informer’s Meagan Marie has recently put up a limited edition Mario Kart version of the Nintendo DS signed by Shigeru Miyamoto, Koji Kondo, Charles Martinet, Eiji Aonuma and Martin Leung. She’s decided to auction off the rare Nintendo DS and give all proceeds to the Red Cross to help out with their cause in Japan following last week’s earthquake. At this time of writing, the price is now at $1,300 and there’s still 6 days left, so you can expect the tablet to fetch a much higher price by the end of the auction. Head here if you’d like to donate to the red cross while earning a piece of Nintendo history while at it.
