"You can penetrate the Princess’ dark matter"
Nintendo is a family-friendly company and tries as hard as possible to maintain that stance, at least when it comes to the residents of the Mushroom Kingdom. However, just like in Jurassic Park, life – or should that be a horny sub-section of the gaming community – finds a way. In this particular...
A behind-the-scenes look
Nintendo has shared a quick video via Twitter, giving us a behind-the-scenes look into the workings of Princess Peach's 3D face model. This is all well and good, of course, but taking away that glistening, polished exterior reveals the rather creepy looking tools hidden inside our favourite characters. As you can see below,...
Making it official
With only a few weeks left to go until the release of Super Mario Odyssey, many promotional items are starting to pop up in preparation for release day. One of the more unusual that has come up is from a Japanese bridal magazine called Zexy. In an issue released on 23rd August - and still available now - a few Nintendo related...
Mario will also "accept anyone at face value", apparently
Style guides exist so that companies can ensure their treasured characters are used consistently through various forms of media - be it video games, TV shows, comic books or cheap lunch boxes produced in far-eastern sweatshops - and Nintendo is no stranger to this process. This...
We'll be amazed if that's actually paid...
Not so long ago we reported on another addition to the strange trend for faulty amiibo being sold on eBay, in this case a remarkably legless Princess Peach. Its early running (or not, but you know what we mean) was impressive, as it sought to overhaul the previous $2500 bid for a dual wielding Samus; it was...
Since amiibo hit stores we've had the opportunity to interact with some of our Nintendo heroes, even if the final retail figures aren't quite as fancy as the demo units revealed at E3. In the vast majority of cases each model is of reasonable quality, but odd defects can happen — one lucky fan discovered a dual-wielding Samus and...
Roll it out for royality
Update: Well, who knew? As has helpfully been pointed out to us, it's actually National Peach Month — as in the fruit — and Nintendo appears to be jumping on the bandwagon with this announcement. Original story: Nintendo sure loves its themed time periods — who could forget the Year of Luigi — and now the company...
Mario Kart TV, a saviour of YouTube
Mario Kart TV, a relatively simple idea of allowing stylish highlight reels with super slow-mo, has become a goldmine of memes and better advertising for Mario Kart 8 than money can buy. The Luigi death stare is so cool that Nintendo even adopted the viral hit for its own advertising in Japan. We had a go at...
Proud to be pink
Many of us parted with good money last year when Nintendo released Mario and Luigi Wii Remote Plus controllers, with a simple colour scheme enough to get us a tad excited. The big N is aiming to tap into that instinct again with a new Princess Peach-themed Remote, with Nintendo of America confirming that it'll arrive in the region's...
