New Super Mario Bros. Wii: Damn, Luigi is lazy


3:40 PM on 11.12.2009



For completionists, collecting all of the Gold Coins in New Super Mario Bros. Wii (there are three in each world) won't simply be a matter of saying "I did it." 

The coins act as currency, which players can spend on unlocking "Hint Movies" in Princess Peach's castle in World 1. These "Hint Movies" are playthrough videos of Nintendo's top testers showing off in-game secrets (like "Infinite 1UPS") or some sick, nearly inhuman playing.

Above is one example, the same one shown to us by Shigeru Miyamoto when he visited New York City a few weeks back. It features three players supporting a lazy Luigi through World 1-3. Watch as Luigi himself does nothing, and the players bounce him off enemies and spit him back and forth from beginning to end. Luigi ends up with four additional extra lives by the levels end, as well as picking up most (if not all) of the game's power-ups and secret coins.

Just... wow.

Did You Know Gaming chronicles NES Super Mario secrets

Alright, how much of this Did You Know did you know? How much will you remember when, finally, it's your time to shine at pub trivia, your compatriots waiting for you to swoop in and save the eventing? The mushroom sound effect similarity to the flagpole sound effect? Pretty cool. And that recycled Ocarina of Time theme? I love stories behind iconic sounds.more

Admit it, you're a Yoshi ditcher

I've done it. You've done it. We've all done it. When you have to choose between Mario or Yoshi, it's always going to be Yoshi getting sacrificed for the greater good ... or for that damn Moon 3-Up x on the Cheese Bridge Area stage in Super Mario World. more
