Why Super Mario Maker 2 Was Almost the Most Addicting Game on Nintendo Switch

Super Mario Maker 2 was almost the most addicting game on Nintendo Switch. Here's where it fell short of earning that title.

Super Mario Party – How Super IS This Party?

Fair warning, folks, this will be a review from the point of view of someone who prefers the N64 games above all else. If you listen to Infendo Radio, it should come as no surprise that I’ve been wanting a return to basics for the Mario Party series for the better part of 10 years now. Over time, the series became something of a mess, with a number of gimmicks changing the core gameplay and ...

10 Classic Nintendo Games That Haven’t Been Remade, but Should Be

I know what you’re thinking. Doesn’t Nintendo already remake everything? Well, yes, Nintendo is notorious for releasing, re-releasing, and re-re-releasing many of their more popular titles. Take Metroid for example. Excluding its original release on the Famicom Disk System and Nintendo Entertainment System, Metroid has been rereleased a grand total of six times (the Classic NES Series ...

Tuesday Time Warp: Top 10 NES Games

What better place to start our new retro feature than the very system that kickstarted this wonderful journey, the Nintendo Entertainment System. For many gamers, the NES was the system that changed our lives and sucked us into a world of endless possibilities. Whether it was World 1-1 of Super Mario Bros, the first dungeon in The Legend of Zelda, or the initial creepy moments of Metroid, the NES ...

New card cases hit Club Nintendo

If you listen to Infendo Radio, you may know that I’m quite keen on Club Nintendo, a rewards program for fans who register their games and systems and take surveys to earn coins that can be redeemed for downloadable games and physical goodies. Today the service saw the addition of new Nintendo 3DS game card cases for 400 coins per “set.” A set includes a card case in the shape an...

New Super Mario 3D World trailer has a distinctly jazzy feel…and lots of new gameplay

Today’s Nintendo Direct opened with perhaps the most extensive look at Super Mario 3D World to date. It showed off equal amounts of the game’s character and gameplay, with a jazzy tune playing throughout and a look at power-ups galore. To name a few, the game will feature the cat suit we’ve already seen, the return of Super Mario 3D Land’s boomerang suit, a cherry that spli...

Opinion: Nintendo Counterbalances Industry Excess

      Nintendo Entertainment System was the first video game system I played. Back then, my playtime was mostly a save-the-princess affair. Playing Nintendo games granted me a way to do something larger than myself. It allowed me to do good deeds.  As I’ve grown older and technology has advanced, mainstays like The Legend of Zelda, Super Mario Brothers, and Pokémon counterbala...

Could Wii U Launch with Super Mario Bros. 4?

Nintendo has now confirmed that it is working on a 2D Super Mario Bros. game for the Wii U based around the “Mario Experience” demo presented at E3 last year. At the same time, speculation is running wild that this game may be related to the supermario4.com domain recently registered by Nintendo. If the game is already well underway, could Nintendo be returning to those magical days when a new sys...

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! I placed a three-star difficulty rating on this puzzle, but when you’re the creator, it’s hard to know whether your rating is accurate. So my question for those of you who download and p...

Super Mario Brothers begins eShop’s NES lineup

Metal Gear’s free demo download wasn’t the only reason to check out eShop this week: Super Mario Brothers became the first of the ambassador NES games to become available for purchase to all North American 3DS owners who bought their systems after the hardware price drop. It’s priced at $4.99. Super Mario Brothers has been updated to include Restore Points, and will now dazzle yo...

Super fandom: Minecrafters recreate Super Mario Land with 18 million blocks

Speechless at the seemingly hundreds of hours this probably took to build. (Thanks, Milo)
