And now I want to play more
Japanese TV show GameCenter CX collaborated with Nintendo on a funny little costume in Super Mario Maker, but that's not all! There's an episode themed around the game on YouTube.
Host Shinya Arino spent half an hour playing ...
GameCenter CX's Arino
In addition to Famitsu's Necky the Fox, Super Mario Maker is getting another character in Japan. It's none other than GameCenter CX's Arino, who will don his suit and tie to take on Goombas and Koopas alike.
To vent a tad, al...
Sold, not shipped
Super Mario Maker has sold one million copies worldwide, Nintendo has announced. This is based on Nintendo's internal sales figures, which include physical, bundle, and digital units. Additionally, 2.2 million courses ha...
November 20, 2015
Nintendo says Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash will release for Wii U on November 20, 2015. (Which, as you might recall, was when we were originally going to get Star Fox Zero before it slipped to 2016.)
In response, people on Twitt...
Games for cheap you might not want?
Nintendo games age somewhere in between a wine and a new car. We keep getting older and they just stay the same (price). The exception is in the "Nintendo Selects" line, which takes games that have already sold very well and ...
A Windows logo amiibo please
Hunting for hidden data on big name Wii U games has yielded some pretty accurate predictions on future DLC in the past. Ryu's inclusion in Smash Bros. for the Wii U and the 3DS was discovered way before it was announced, and ...
'Interested' in another movie
I already know John Leguizamo and his inability to smile are handsome. It's just nice to hear Miyamoto say it.
MTV International asked Shigeru Miyamoto and Takashi "Ten Ten" Tezuka who would be right for a theoretical Super ...
No more spike exploit
Because people will literally find anything, a glitch was uncovered in Super Mario Maker that allowed players to become invincible. You can trigger the glitch by building a door above a spike pit, then power-up Mari...
Also talks about Super Hornio Bros.
Rom Jeremy aka The Hedgehog aka the chubby guy with the giant cock in all your parents' favorite porn films was recently interviewed by Vice discussing the Super Mario Bros. porn parody in which he starred called Super H...
Definitely the hardest Mario Maker stage
False prophets are not new. Jordan told you all that this was one of the hardest Super Mario Maker levels, but it's all twitch-based reflex video games 101. Any gamehead worth her salt could polish that bad boy off, at least...
Bomb Voyage blew my mind. While watching Bananasaurus Rex's triumphant run, I could hardly fathom what I was seeing on-screen, much less imagine myself ever possessing the skill needed to pull off those tricks in perfect sequ...
It's a metaphor for life!
I used Super Mario Maker to drive one of my good friends into the arms of alcoholism. When Myles Cox (the Destructoid Video Boy who had his day) and I workshopped the idea that would become the Coximano Challenge, we fig...
Firewalk with me
As outlined by GameXplain, there's a glitch in Super Mario Maker that grants invincibility.
The process involves taking damage and walking through a door placed over spikes. The trick is in the timing -- you can't enter the d...
Have mercy on us all
It took Bananasaurus Rex, the guy who can do the impossible in Spelunky, "about four hours from start of practice" to clear this absurdly difficult Super Mario Maker level.
Let's see what you can do!
UPDATE: Entry for this contest is now closed. Thank you everybody who submitted a level.
Earlier this month, after more than a year of waiting, Nintendo finally released Super Mario Maker on the Wii U. Our own Chris Carter li...
A Goomba's life can be a terrible thing
You can make fun little levels in Super Mario Maker. You can make challenging levels to test player's skills. You can make trolly Cat Mario style levels that play cheap shots for laughs. But what about a level that will leav...
A brand new stage based on Super Mario Maker is heading to Super Smash Bros. on September 30th, and it looks exactly as crazy and whimsical as you'd want it to be. Embracing the creative chaos of Mario Maker, the stage will be constructed differently at the beginning of every match and constantly edited and fussed with throughout by a stylus gripping hand like so many Duck Amuck shenanigans.
If Mario Maker is a success, then what?
With the 9/11 Super Mario Maker release, it seems like a lot of people spent the weekend playing and making levels while I spent the weekend playing more Metal Gear, eating too much at an Indian buffet, and watching sports.
I'm always forgetting anniversaries
Google did a low key celebration for the 30th anniversary of Super Mario Bros. So low key that the 30th anniversary was yesterday and many of us idiots who'd normally be writing posts about it were busy watching football and ...
On this day in 1985, Nintendo released the original Super Mario Bros. for Famicom in Japan.
Mario had been around for a few years at that point, initially appearing as Jumpman in Donkey Kong before getting a name in Donk...
I made one too
So, Super Mario Maker is finally out, and I can only assume people are hard at work creating their own levels. Thankfully the pointless "nine-day" wait function is now gone, so you can access every tool available in a few hou...
The costumes are the best part
Ever since I was five years old, I've been drawing my own Mario levels on graph paper. It's a pretty common story, because when I look at a series to give me a platforming baseline, it's usually Mario. Nintendo didn't ju...
Just make some levels, ya dingus!
A patch for Super Mario Maker went live hours ahead of its official release that removes the requirement to wait nine days -- or set your Wii U system clock ahead -- to acquire all of the level editor parts.
The update ...
Miyamoto is Bowser's mom?
Yesterday, Nintendo hyped up a video from their own Shigeru Miyamoto, who would reveal "myths" about the Mario series, some of which have plagued fans for years. The biggest draw was probably the identity of Bowser Jr.'s (and...
Necky the Fox
As expected, Super Mario Maker will seemingly get new DLC post-launch. I mean, the format is ripe for it, both for free and paid content.
The first round will include the DLC character of "Necky," (Nekki) Famitsu magazin...
Peruse the digital version
In the lower left of this Nintendo-approved image, it looks like Mario is holding hands with himself. It's far from the only strange sight in the Super Mario Maker idea booklet.
Ahead of the game's Friday release, you can loo...
Super Mario Maker, which comes out on September 11 (9/11) has seen various 8-bit character skins (Sonic, Waluigi, Pit, etc), many of which are unlockable with amiibo dolls (but also unlockable through gameplay).
The only dif...
Better check your bank account
GAME, the UK's biggest games retailer, has apologised to customers who have been charged up to seven times for their pre-order of Super Mario Maker.
For some, that's a whopping £328.93 disappearing from their bank accou...
The team can only do so many projects
The last time Nintendo designer Shigeru Miyamoto spoke about the possibility of another Super Mario Galaxy, the team was busy with Super Mario 3D World and physically couldn't "make both at the same time." But more Galaxy, he...
Best Buy deal
Best Buy is holding a deal that's great for Wii U owners looking to flesh out their library.
If you order Super Mario Maker (which releases this Friday), you can save $20 on either Splatoon, Super Smash Bros., or Mario Kart 8...
