UPDATE: Campaign is cancelled
Update: Well, that didn't take long. Despite apparently having the permission of Nintendo to run this campaign, the team behind it has now cancelled the Kickstarter. Does this mean legal pressure was applied, or are they simply re-grouping with a different approach? If we hear anything, we'll update this...
Watch out for the piranha plants
We recently posted about the Super Nintendo World attraction that is coming to Universal Studios in Japan, but now we have our first look at the construction courtesy of L.C.A. Studios, which has posted some photos on Twitter: While the construction is obviously at a very early stage, we can see they are going for...
Is it-a me, Mario you're looking for?
https://youtu.be/9dRqM-ceCiY The Super Mario series like so many others is brimming with secrets, some of them interesting, some of them not so much, but we're sure few would argue the best secrets take the form of complete levels for you to play. That's why we've thrown together what may well be the top five...
Panga strikes again for a World Record
World Records may be tumbling in the Olympic Games in Rio, but there are also new marks to be set in the speedrunning community. Panga, who we've featured in the past thanks to his outrageously complicated Super Mario Maker creations, has reclaimed the record for the fastest blindfolded run of Super Mario...
New 3DS / SNES
Same great adventure, smaller screen
As everyone knows, the best use of your latest piece of gaming machinery is to play games from yesteryear. Should a Nintendo Direct mention a 'new old' system is joining the Virtual Console line-up there is much excitement, and so it was when it was revealed that SNES titles were going portable. Though limited to...
"Ah, good! My child is old enough to play video games now!"
Video games are often unfairly blamed for society's ills, with critics claiming they make players violent or antisocial. While some might assume such claims are a recent thing, a newly-translated interview with the team behind Super Mario World reveals that such unwarranted criticism has...
To mark 25 years of Super Mario World

We make dreams into realities!
Now that the New Nintendo 3DS is here, everyone wants to see SNES games hit the Virtual Console. But why stop there? Why can't we have some 3D Classics based on SNES games? After all, we already have some excellent Mega Drive games, so 16-bit 3D remakes are already a possibility. Using a very painstaking process,...
A novel use for the humble recorder
Whenever we tried to play the recorder at school using our nose our teachers told us off. That early lesson in life didn't seem to get through to Japanese NicoNico user Wakou who can not only play music by blowing into a recorder through his nose, but also control Mario in Super Mario World. The secret to doing...
Wii U eShop / GBA
A world in no need of change
Having Super Mario Advance 2: Super Mario World exist on the same Virtual Console as the original Super Mario World is like having two legit copies of the Mona Lisa hanging in the Louvre: each is fundamentally a masterpiece, and any attempt to compare the two is mostly going to come down to nitpicking about the way each...
"This is not a movie," Max Landis admits
1993's Super Mario Bros. movie is generally regarded as a failure — both commercially and critically — but it has nevertheless gone on to become something of a cult classic. However, we're not sure the same would ever have been said about Max Landis' proposed movie adaptation of Super Mario World, which...
