There's a manga character in Mario Maker

Oh, hey, would you look at this video. It's Chitoge Kirisaki from the rom-com manga (and also anime) Nisekoi as a playable character in Super Mario Maker. To unlock her costume, just clear the level "Nisekoi: Chitoge & Kosaki" or "Nisek...

Super Mario Maker is getting the original Pokemon trio

I have to say, Nintendo is doing a bang-up job of celebrating Pokémon's 20th anniversary. Hell, there's already been a ton of fanfare (the Mew event, tons of merchandise worldwide, amiibo restocks, a Splatoon Splatfest, a new 'm...

Oh hey, Professor E. Gadd is coming to Super Mario Maker

Super Mario Maker has been pretty fantastic in terms of its event course and 8-bit sprite offerings (read: free DLC), and this new one is no different. Professor E. Gadd of the Luigi's Mansion series joins the fray, complete with a gho...

Whip up a sweet wallpaper with Mario Maker

Nintendo has a cool little web app that lets you create wallpapers for your phone or computer, Mario Maker style. It's only in Japanese, for now, but I'm confident you'll be able to find your way around. This tool isn't nearly as extensive ...

Just watching this Mario Maker level gave me PTSD

I'm sure you've all seen hard Mario Maker levels by now, but The Pit of Panga: Cape Escape by the eponymous Panga has to take the cake. It is a bottomless chasm of certain death, fiendish puzzles, and devilish dexterity challenges that seem...

The latest Mario Maker costume is a nod to Super Mario Land

Nintendo has tied another Super Mario Maker costume to a branded level, but at least this time it's based on an existing part of the Mario universe (Super Mario Land), not a real-world car. To earn the Sky Pop plane, you'll have to clear th...
