It’s the kind of job you pined for as a kid, but common-sense dictates that working at Nintendo isn’t quite as fun as it sounds. At least that’s what you tell yourself, every single morning, as you prepare for yet another day without half-hourly Mario Kartbreaks.

Well, we're sorry to tell you this, but working at the Japanese gaming giant’s office is, if not quite as brilliant as you once imagined, still much, much better than whatever you've got going on at the moment.

Nintendo Japan is currently seeking 81 new graduate employees, from music producers to game developers, and the perks revealed by their Twitter recruitment ads are pretty impressive.

The company’s 2,271 employees (which have a median age of 38.6 years) enjoy an average yearly wage of ¥90.3 million, which works out at approximately P42,535,156.68. The average graduate at the company can expect to make approximately P120,162.19 a month.

What’s more, employees only work approximately 7 hours, 45 minutes a day. With regular bonuses scheduled through the year, it’s no wonder that people stay for an average duration of 13.5 years. Employees mainly work in the company’s Kyoto office, with occasional placements in Tokyo.
