    Watch the first act right now

    Jonathan Mann is the mind behind taking Shigeru Miyamoto's iconic red plumber and putting his story into the form of an opera. Mann's script and score were originally performed over four days back in 2005, and the production was not performed again until 2013, when a final farewell performance was held and recorded...

  • Poll Which Is The Best Super Mario Platformer?

    2D or 3D, old or new, you decide...

    Not too long ago we asked you to vote for the best Legend of Zelda game; plenty of you participated. You made the impossible decision, as it's never an easy pick with so many world class games on the list; in the end the iconic and memorable The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time seized the crown. We r

  • Weirdness Check Out this LEGO Bob-Omb Battlefield Reconstruction

    In more than 64 bits

    Everybody likes to celebrate their passion in different ways, and one intrepid gamer has recreated the entirety of Bob-Omb Battlefield from Super Mario 64 entirely from LEGO bricks.

  • Video Vancouver Elementary School Breathes New Life into Super Mario RPG Soundtrack

    If we don't beware, who will?

    Many of you who grew up with an SNES controller clutched between your fingers will have fond memories of the bizarre experimentation that was Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars. Little did people at the time know that it would be the first in a huge number of RPGs following the antics of the world's most...

  • Weirdness Mario, Luigi, and Sonic Are Advertising A Chinese Mobile Phone Network

    Honest truth, guv

    There's something just a little bit wrong in China Mobile's advertising, pictured above. Apparently Mario, Luigi and Sonic have all been conscripted into the firm's latest promotion. Nintendo hasn't exactly made a habit of freely giving out its characters for other companies to use, being so protective as to initiate YouTube...

  • Video Mario Battles Through Real Life Tokyo to Get to Super Smash Bros. Event

    A smashing fan made trailer

    We've seen some awesome fan made Nintendo videos in the past, and this certainly ranks as one of the best.

    Review Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels

    Super Masochist Bros.

    Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels is the famously difficult, Japan-only sequel to the titular plumber's breakout NES hit, expanding on the original formula with deviously challenging level design and obstacles. Western audiences were instead given the comparatively easy 'Super Mario USA' (a re-skinned translation of Nintendo's...

    Review Mario Bros.

    Subpar Mario

    Mario and Luigi’s adventures have been nothing short of fantastical over the years, to the point where you could be forgiven for questioning their occupations as plumbers. But despite the brothers’ incredibly varied employment history as doctors, sportsmen and racing drivers — in which they’ve rarely called upon their supposed...

  • Preview Japanese Gamers Get Their Free Super Mario Bros. Deluxe Download

    Can't grumble at free, right?

    European gamers have to wait a few weeks longer yet, but lucky Japanese 3DS owners should have already received their free download codes for this fondly-remembered port of a gaming legend. First impressions of Super Mario Deluxe aren't, however, particularly good – the VS. game mode and print options simply don’t...

  • News Mario's Iconic Hat Is Now Available From Club Nintendo Australia

    Don't go plumbing without it

    After a surprising end to 2013, Club Nintendo Australia has kicked off the New Year with a bang, adding Mario's famous hat to the local catalogue.

    Wii U eShop / NES

    Review Super Mario Bros. 3

    A truly super Mario game

    Super Mario Bros. 3’s recent arrival on the Wii U eShop seemed like a conspicuously low-key affair compared to the considerable hype that surrounded its hugely anticipated original release back the early nineties. However, that doesn't mean that the lack of booming fanfare should be interpreted as a cause for concern; over...

    Review Mario Tennis

    Courts of Appeal

    For whatever its name is worth, Mario Tennis doesn’t feature a lot of the red guy — at least at first. That may come as an initial disappointment to some who were drawn to the M-word. Now if you came for the “tennis” part, well, that’s a whole different story. Mario Tennis will let you get into a game right off the...
