Enough Is Enough: Make Classic Nintendo Titles Free for Switch Owners

Confession time: Sometimes I like to lurk through unfinished Infendo articles from years ago just for kicks. I found one by an apparently ex-Infendo writer named Michael titled “Should Super Mario Bros. Be Free to Play”. While the article wasn’t actually about making old Nintendo games free, it did get me thinking: Isn’t it about time we make the oldest titles part of a pac...

Video: Super Mario Bros. theme with wine glasses and a frying pan

YouTube user Dan Newbie has made a habit of recreating memorable songs and themes with the use of kitchen utensils and various glassware. Now, he has paid homage to the Super Mario Bros. theme using only wine glasses and a frying pan. The video is an interesting take on a gaming theme so recognizable that it wouldn’t be surprising to see viewers (including myself) bang on pots and pans for a...

Walker started out small with his now popular character, but it has since exploded with millions of views on his website.

Get your 8-bit Mario in Pushmo form right here!

I’m rather engrossed in the puzzle creation tool in Pushmo right now. This week I have another character puzzle for you. It’s the plumber we all know and love in all his 8-bit glory: Mario!

Paper Mario

The latest Iwata Asks is a wealth of cool Nintendo info. In addition to yesterday’s revelation that the 3DS would benefit from a Super Mario Bros. title “ASAP,” we also were given access to some of the very first design documents that Miyamoto and his team used to create the original Super Mario Bros. No Photoshop or similar software here, folks—just pure paper Mario!

Miyamoto’s 3DS Super Mario Bros. title will be out “ASAP”

Has infamously pro-3D Shigeru Miyamoto (as in Mario 64, not silly glasses) finally come around on the resurgent 2D platformer? Perhaps he has, if recent Iwata Asks interview answers are any indication. “In the interests of adopting new technology for the Super Mario Bros. tradition, I am now making a new Super Mario Bros. game for the Nintendo 3DS,” he said, adding that he wants the game to be...

Super Mario Sisters nearly happened

While sifting through some filings at the United States Patent and Trademark Office as I am wont to do on a Saturday night, I stumbled upon a trademark filing made by Nintendo for “Super Mario Sisters.” After holding the trademark for just under two years, Nintendo let it expire in 1991 along with the hopes and dreams of countless fans of The Great Giana Sisters. Although the trademar...
