The calm before the storm: Infendo’s E3 2014 predictions

E3 2014 is upon us, which is a blessing (and a curse for the stress and writing workload) for many game journalists and bloggers like us at Infendo. In a span of a few short days, Nintendo will be unveiling new games for the Wii U and 3DS and possibly some other surprises along the way. The excitement and anticipation alone has made myself included continue to dub E3 “Gamer Christmas.” We have alr...

So…Seems Like Mario Has Become a Sex Symbol…

In a new advertising campaign for the 3DS, starring Kim Cattrall, we find that Mario is pretty popular with the ladies.  Even while Kim is on the go, she always finds time spend some time with our favorite mustached plumber (I hope he keeps some ointment hidden under that hat of his)!  The advert plays off of Kim’s role in Sex in the City and although not everyone will get the reference (I d...

Super Mario 3D Land Review: The plumber still amazes

What a relief! After months of waiting, Mario’s arrived on 3DS with all cylinders firing. Super Mario 3D Land isn’t just a good portable Mario game; it’s one of the very best Mario adventures, topped only (for me, anyway) by SMB3 and Galaxy 2. Sharp, ingenious, and fun beyond belief, this game’s a feast for Mario fans as it pays tribute to characters and locales from the franchise’s ...

Mario arrives today!

The reason many of us bought a 3DS in the first place goes on sale in North America today! I’m off to pick up my copy, along with (hopefully) the Tanooki Mario keychain that was part of the preorder deal. Anyone else jumping down a green pipe today? Were any of you lucky enough to attend the event in NYC and pick up your copy early? Did this convince anyone to actually buy a 3DS this afterno...

Infendo PSA: If you live in New York, get your butt to Times Square this Saturday

So Nintendo knows that the release of any Mario title is kind of a big deal, and when Super Mario 3D Land releases this Sunday, they plan on turning Times Square into a Mario themed obstacle course to celebrate. I don’t usually care for big cities, what with all the pollution ludicrously high taxes, but it’s days like these that I wish I could live in a city like New York. Nintendo be decking ...

Super Mario 3D Land offers two different 3D views for gameplay

In the final weeks of game development, the team behind Super Mario 3D Land took a look at the nearly-finished Mariokart 7, liked what they saw, and promptly altered the way you experience 3D in their platformer.

Mario Week! Which depiction of Mario is your favorite?

Super Mario 3D Land arrives in six days! My 3DS is practically crying tears of joy. As we wait, take a look back at the various versions of Mario Nintendo’s presented over the years and tell us your personal favorite. I’ll bet you won’t agree with my pick! I’ve grouped the many, many different Marios into seven categories, throwing in two non-game options because they repre...

New 3D trailers highlight great things to come

Six new 3D trailers have been added to the eShop, giving an updated preview of Super Mario 3D Land, Mariokart 7, Luigi’s Mansion 2, Mario Tennis, Paper Mario and Animal Crossing. These titles are the reason I bought a 3DS, and they’re all looking fantastic. Luigi’s Mansion 2, in fact, looks like it may turn out to be the surprise super-charmer of the bunch.

New Super Mario 3D Land details surface, good news for all the not so good players of the world

Super Mario 3D Land (that title doesn’t get any easier to say, no matter how many times I type it) is right around the corner, and more info on the title continues to pop up. Over in Japan, dummy boxes have begun to emerge at retailers revealing some new tidbits about the game. Paired with a few new screenshots is some info on how Nintendo plans to use the consoles SpotPass feature for the game....

Super Mario 3D Land gets new logo, going ‘back to the basics’

Nintendo of America has revealed the final logo for Super Mario 3D Land, and boy is it colorful. Yoshiaki Koizumi, game director behind Super Mario 3D Land has gone on record in saying that with the new title his team is focusing on going back to the basics. As for my thoughts on design that has changed because of the hardware update – I would say that Mario at its core has a very simple, v...
