Even Babymetal is teaming up with Mario Maker

The metal idol group Babymetal is coming to Super Mario Maker as a character costume, which is something I should probably find strange, but don't -- not after the pigeon, Barbara the Bat, and Chitoge Kirisaki. Nintendo has gone to unexpec...

Square's Super Mario RPG pitch: Mario with a sword on horseback

I regretfully have not played Super Mario RPG, but I have a feeling it wouldn't be so revered as a classic had Nintendo followed Square's initial pitch, which included Mario riding a horse, wearing a cape, and holding a sword. It'd just be...

Okay, this fan-made Mario Football mock-up is great

I used to be fairly into sports video games back when they tended to be more straightforward, arcade-style experiences -- stuff the whole family could easily learn to play and love. Heck, to this day, I still regularly revisit titles from t...

It only took 46 hours to beat this insane Super Mario Maker level

Your scientists were so preoccupied with whether or not they could, they didn’t stop to think if they should. When you finally beat the insane Super Mario Maker level after 46 hours:

Relive the infamous 'Mario Party Glove' and other incidents during the series' history

Mario Party might be accused of producing the same concepts over and over again, but it has a storied and interesting history to it. Most older gamers will likely remember the "glove" incident, where the Nintendo 64 controller was so t...

There's a new Super Mario Bros. world record speedrun

Video game masterpiece Super Mario Bros. is more than 20 years old [correction: 30 years, math is hard], but the very best attempts at playing it have all been fairly recent. The past two years have brought about many new world r...

You probably haven't seen this Super Mario Bros. 3 animation

For each episode of The Simpsons I can recite from memory, I can still watch that show and stumble upon a dusty, hitherto undiscovered or unappreciated (by me) gag. Even if it's just a sign in the background. That show was real good for a l...

Nintendo still coy about exactly what makes them delete a Super Mario Maker level

As you may have heard, Nintendo has been deleting select Super Mario Maker stages lately, including a series of levels from popular streamers. The problem is, they don't really explain why this is happening, and these bans can com...

I would definitely play a Mario Kart themed Rocket League

It might not be real, but The Pixel Kingdom has shared their vision of what Rocket League would be like if it took place in the Mushroom Kingdom. And you know what? I can dig it. Lightning power-ups, items that morph the size of the ba...

Would you spend over 12 hours trying to beat a Mario level?

I like difficult games as much as the next guy, but I draw the line at trying to best every "insane!" Super Mario Maker level known to man. But given the massive sales it's seen, there's always going to be at least one person in t...

Starfy is coming to Super Mario Maker

Starfy is a lesser-known character from the Nintendo universe, but that might be because he's not wholly owned by Nintendo. In fact, he's co-owned by Tose, creators of the Game & Watch franchise, as the Legend of Starfy games were only ...

 
amiibo Challenge review
Nintendo backed itself into a corner with amiibo in terms of software. Now that the things are wildly popular, it's at a crossroads. Does it gate substantial content behind them and piss off casual fans who don't want to buy ...   read

Nintendo is attempting to trademark the Mario coin sound

It's funny when you hear a clear-cut video game noise out in public. Like when the gas station register belts out a sound effect from Sonic the Hedgehog, or when the Mario coin noise plays. Well, Nintendo is looking to take the latter ...

Toadette is making her way into Super Mario Maker

When Captain Toad was added to Super Mario Maker, it made sense that Toadette was only a matter of time. Nintendo confirmed her appearance this week as a Mystery Mushroom character, to be added in shortly alongside of the new update charact...

This Wario-centric history video brings back some good memories

Wario games are legendary. They sum up Nintendo's goofier side, and many projects, which wouldn't have otherwise gotten the greenlight, were made possible because of Wario's involvement. He's one of my favorite characters that the publisher...

Nintendo celebrates Mario Day today, March 10

You know how people make up dumb holidays all the time, and some of them stick? Like you're out at work and someone says "hey why aren't you wearing black, it's talk like a pirate day?" (that actually happened to me once). Yeah, that kind o...

The next Super Mario Maker character is...Mashiko, the game counselor

If you haven't taken a gander at the in-game guide in Super Mario Maker, you should probably change that at some point. The mascot within, Mashiko, has become a sort of mini celebrity of sorts, much like Swapnote's Nikki before her. An...

Recent Nintendo classics are finally heavily discounted on Amazon

Nintendo games can be something of a double-edged sword. Having been developed by Nintendo, they're usually very good. But, Nintendo also has a habit of rarely discounting its titles. That means you're going to have to pay for quality, even...

Mario creator Shigeru Miyamoto liked Star Wars VII
