  • Weirdness New York Times Finally Issues a Correction for Describing the Mario Bros. as Janitors in 1988

    The error was spotted in Hiroshi Yamauchi's obituary

    Writers and journalists, no matter the prestige of their publication, make mistakes. Facts are incorrect or the wording may be wrong, and corrections are made. The New York Times, in an admirable sense of perspective and maintaining standards, has corrected an error from an article published 25...

  • News Well, Here's an Awesome Tanooki Mario Statue

    Yours for just $199 US Dollars

    We do like Nintendo memorabilia here at Nintendo Life, as anyone that follows our Instagram account can see. So when First 4 Figures announces a planned range of Super Mario statues that are officially licensed by Nintendo, you can bet we're interested. The first in this new range is set to be a beauty, too. It's a...

  • Weirdness Watch Nearly 1000 Mario Players All At Once

    Super Mario Boy

    For those that have played Super Meat Boy, which unfortunately never made it to a Nintendo system, a highlight can be the replay that follows every completed level — all of your attempts are shown at once. If you can imagine that with a Super Mario Bros. level, but with 974 players on display, then you can imagine what's coming...

  • News The Harp Twins Strike Again With A Whimsical Mario Medley

    The harp-playing duo are in another castle

    Long-time fans of Nintendo Life will no doubt recall Camille and Kennerly — better known on YouTube as The Harp Twins — and their spine-tingling rendition of Ballad of the Goddess from The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword. The girls were kind enough to speak

    Review Super Mario Bros.

    Forever running to the right

    Mario. Say it loud and there's music playing. Say it soft, and it's almost like praying. Super Mario Bros. was, is, and will always be one of gaming's great masterpieces, and its availability on any additional format is a good thing. It's come to the Wii and 3DS Virtual Consoles before, and now jumps onto the Wii U...

  • Weirdness Formula One Champion Sebastian Vettel Channels His Inner Mario

    His car doesn't look particularly safe

    Mario is undoubtedly an icon, and it seems that plenty of people are willing to dress up as the mustachioed plumber — and sometimes his brother — for a bit of extra attention; let's not forget that we did just that recently. But still, when Formula One World Champion Sebastian Vettel dresses up as the...

    Review Super Mario Bros. 2

    Sweet dreams are made of these

    By now we all know the story of Super Mario Bros. 2: concerns about the Japanese sequel to the original Super Mario Bros. kept it from release in North America and Europe. Different reasons have been given over time, from the game being too difficult to it simply not demonstrating enough creativity to keep gamers...

    Review Mario & Luigi: Dream Team

    A never-ending dream

    If there was more justice in the world, Mario & Luigi: Dream Team — or Mario & Luigi: Dream Team Bros. as it's known in Europe — would enjoy the same level of hype and anticipation as some of its prestigious predecessors on the 3DS in 2013. And yet, rather like its snoozy subject matter, it drifts into view on a...

  • News Nintendo Defends Influx of New Mario Titles

    Too much of a good Mario?

    There’s no doubt Nintendo has been putting its world-famous plumber to work. Since New Super Mario Bros. Wii in 2009, there has been at least one new Mario platformer released each year. The pace has felt even faster recently, with the expected December arrival of Super Mario 3D World marking the third Mario platformer...

    Review Wrecking Crew

    It's wrecking time!

    Mario's claim to fame has often been jumping; a simple skill, but unfailingly entertaining. It can be tough to remember a time when he traded high-flying acrobatics for a hammer and an insatiable appetite for destruction, but that's exactly the case in Wrecking Crew. Smashing things to bits is the straightforward goal, but...

    Review Mario Bros.

    Definitely not super

    If you've ever been curious about Mario and Luigi's actual credibility as plumbers, you'll want to look all the way back to 1983's Mario Bros., the game which established pipe-cleaning as their true vocation and served as something of a bridge between arcade sensation Donkey Kong and early platforming masterpiece Super Mario...

  • Weirdness The Roots Perform an Awesome Mario Rap on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon

    Disses Luigi, rap battle should happen...

    For those that don't know, The Roots are a critically acclaimed, Grammy winning band, that also serves as the house band on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. Some of you may also be aware that Fallon has been doing a lot of post-E3 coverage, so games have been a prominent part of his show in the past week. That...

  • First Impressions Mario Kart 8

    Turning things upside down

    Imagine the Mario Kart series as an enormous living being made out of adorable cars, happy drivers, delightful loops passing through volcanoes and haunted houses and vicious blue shells. Envision this being, this body of Kartdom, and now answer this simple question: where is its heart? What is the thumping engine within...

  • First Impressions Super Mario 3D World

    Stranger things have happened

    Sometimes it’s easy to forget how weird Mario games are. Think about it: A pudgy plumber in overalls who can jump ridiculously high, throw fireballs when he touches flowers, get huge when he eats mushrooms and make it with a princess provided he kicks the seven shades of crap out of a giant turtle dragon. That is the...

    Remember Super Mario Bros. Crossover? It was a fan-made title which allowed Nintendo lovers to play the classic Super Mario Bros. with characters from other games, including Metroid, Castlevania and Mega Man. Th

  • News "Suspicious" Box Poses Question for Arizona Police

    “Nothing of concern” found inside

    A gold box with a question mark is the universal symbol of goodies for any gamer, but finding one in the middle of an Arizona neighbourhood prompted a much more careful response from area police. News station KNXV-TV reported that about 50 people were evacuated on Friday as a precaution while bomb technicians...
