Actually seems legit
Back in early February documentation was found for special edition Gold and Silver Super Mario amiibo, and after a few months of pretending the rumours didn't exist Nintendo of America confirmed the gold figure. A Walmart-exclusive limited edition in North America, it was released alongside
Until the small hours of the morning
While it's not quite on the scale of a 3D Mario, Metroid or Legend of Zelda release, there's clearly a decent audience keen to grab new Mario Party titles when they arrive. The Wii U release of Mario Party 10 seems to be a case-in-point, as it's enjoyed a pretty decent first two weeks in the UK charts. In its...
Family Gamer's Andy Robertson talks Toys to Life
While my family have well and truly been bitten by the deadly amiibo collecting bug, until now this had been the territory of my two boys rather than my daughter. Although we all play Super Smash Bros. she rarely gets the game out herself. However, the arrival of Mario Party 10 and the related Super...
Part of the goal are "actions that are overflowing with energy"
Mario Party 10, as the name makes very clear, is just the latest in one of Nintendo's most substantial franchises. Especially frequent on the GameCube, it's evidently achieved a good degree of success and remains a mainstay on Nintendo hardware, with the home console entries being...
Seems to mean Twitter comps, not video streams
Mario Party 10 is Nintendo's big retail release in both North America and Europe this week, so we can expect the big N to make a lot of noise ahead of the 20th March arrival. Nintendo of America, for its part, has announced some social networking shenanigans in the form of a 'Virtual Launch Party' on...
Let's get this party started!
It's commonly accepted that partying too hard can be a bad thing. However, that doesn't appear to be a concern for Mario and friends, who since 1998 have appeared in 10 home console Mario Party games and even a few portable outings, too. While Mario's virtual board game gatherings are now a far less common occurrence...
Take a look at the new modes in Mario's latest celebration!
Mario Party 10 is upon us, and after so many entries you'd think Nintendo wouldn't have anything more to add to the formula. Enter Bowser Party and amiibo Party, two modes that make the most of some of the Wii U's hardware features to shake up the Mario Party formula. In Bowser Party, one...
Doesn't mention the 'find amiibo stock' meta-game
Mario Party 10 is the next big-name retail arrival on Wii U, landing in North America and Europe on 20th March. That 10 in the title should tip you off that this franchise has been consistently popular, and Nintendo's marketing has been actively pitching this - unsurprisingly - to families. Could it...
Let's get it started...
The arrival of Mario Party 10 on 20th March is the end-result of one of this generation's inevitabilities; the fact we're onto number ten says all we need to know about how prolific this series has been on Nintendo's home consoles since the Nintendo 64 days. We may not all clamour to pick these titles up when they arrive, but...
Picking up on previous speculation in Japan
Update: Nintendo España has, unsurprisingly, now informed Nintenderos that this press release was in error; we've also received a similar message after enquiring on this with Nintendo UK. As suggested below there have been instances like this out of Nintendo's Spanish divisions in the recent past, so...
What about Europe?
Not long ago a credible rumour emerged of Gold and Silver Mario amiibo toys being prepared for sale, with web pages discovered showing documentation for health and safety testing on these figures, specifically in the Super Mario design. The pages related to Nintendo of America, and it now seems that the gold figure is certainly on...
New versions of Rosalina, Donkey Kong and Wario
Nintendo has launched a pretty substantial website in Japan for Mario Party 10, which arrives on Wii U rather soon, and some details and images have prompted speculation that more unannounced Super Mario range amiibo toys are on the way. As you can see in the image below special boards for Rosalina,...
Get ready to Mario party!
amiibo collectors will no doubt be rushing to their keyboards to preorder the latest Super Mario series of amiibo which got listed on Nintendo UK's online store today. The following six amiibo can currently be reserved for the reasonable sum of £10.99 a piece, delivered to your door: Mario amiibo
Smashing up the tracks
It's no secret that many of the amiibo figurines already revealed will work across a range of compatible software titles, and now a recently-discovered Wal-Mart promotional display has shed some light on which are set for use in Mario Kart 8. Nintendo Force editor Lucas Thomas managed to grab a picture detailing a list of...
