Nintendo is gaining popularity in Belgium... as an XTC pill

The BEWSD (Belgian Early Warning System on Drugs) warns of a drug called Nintendo, an XTC pill that is gaining popularity and can be quite deadly. The pill contains a very high amount of MDMA, the active ingredient found in XTC, which, for example, can be fatal for an average 14 year old girl.

The new pills are probably massively imported from China and, via the Modus Vivendi project, have been discovered in the surroundings of Brussels. Modus Vivendi allows drug users to anonymously bring their drugs in to check its quality. This way, one tries to minimize the risks. In Flanders however, such a project does not exist.

The pills often contain the logo of Nintendo, something the company probably is not happy about, as they may be confused with a piece of candy.

So this is how Nintendo entered the Chinese market and is planning to make profits.

Iwata: (laughs)


But serious, I hope they'll be able to solve this problem soon. Those drugs are complete filth.

Ha! I have seen pills of E with the super star and mushroom on too. Clearly Nintendo is a gateway to drugs.

When a doomed company gets diagnosed with a dead home console, its CEO, Satoru Iwata, begins to cook meth to provide for the financial future of his company and form his legacy.

This summer... on AMC.

I remember around 97/98 there were a batch of really good Es (as they're known in the UK) called Playstations. There have also been acid tabs with Sonic & Mario prints on them, and at least a few other batches of Es with other videogaming-related logos on them.

Nothing new here.

Don't touch those things guys, they had to take him with a brancard to the hospital because of the large doses of XTC in the pill
There's no such thing as 'XTC' mate, and MDMA is one of the most glorious chemicals ever invented for human use.

Lots of claims being made in the article without factual basis too...

Why the fuck are we calling it XTC? Its Ecstasy.

Ive seen spongbob tabs, dexter tabs, even transformer tabs (Sorry asus). The drug labs just have a infatuation with anything thats childlike.

XTC is a US thing isn't it? Apparently in Belgium too, altho the Belgians I know who drop all call them Es too.
I thought they called it Molly? (Which is equally recent and stupid). Both are new names to make the same shit sound edgier.

Ecstasy might be the only Drug ever that has gone through a rebranding to boost sales. Quite ironic, that.
