  • News Waluigi First Graced Us With His Presence 20 Years Ago


    20 years ago this week, Mario Tennis was released for the Nintendo 64 in Japan.

Yes, Mario Tennis introduced Waluigi to the world, Wario's...



  • Feature Memories of Court Battles in Mario Tennis

    Nintendo Life writers and some readers pitch in

    Survival horror from Sunsoft and more

    Just three games for Japan this month, which is pretty much to be expected by now. One of them is a Nintendo 64 game everybody else has already gotten, while the other two games are both great, but Japan-exclusive. The only way we'll be seeing either of them is through import releases! The full, short list for...
