Nintendo godfather Shigeru Miyamoto is officially up to something, and it sounds like he’s gearing up for the newest installment of ‘Super Mario Bros.‘ We’re just about sure this one will be on the 3DS. The video game icon recently said “I want to show everyone as soon as possible what the new Super Mario Bros. will be like on the Nintendo 3DS.” We’re not sure what he has in mind, but with words like “new” being thrown around it should be safe to say that this won’t be a 3D remake. Considering the mega success of ‘New Super Mario Bros.’ on the soon to be old school DS and the big numbers Mario put up on the Wii, it just makes sense. Hopefully we’ll see some type of teaser trailer at E3.
Do you like Star Wars? Do you like Super Mario Brothers? How about mixing them together? The folks at TeeFury have this unique fashion statement on sale today for $9. Word is that this shirt is a one time only deal (perhaps made to order?). In any event this is a very clever mashup and a must own for any real fanboy or girl of either series.
As the days go by the Kinect homebrew scene is exploding with more applications and hacks each day. This time around programmer Yankeyan is controlling Super Mario Brothers using OpenKinect and some Nintendo emulation. The results are somewhat crude, but hey adding next-gen controls to a game over twenty-years old is still impressive work. Consider this more of a fanboy tribute instead of something practical, heck after a couple of levels the average gamer will be pretty tired. We still feel Kinect has has the potential to be added to current games in more of a supporting mode in more traditional games, pretty much almost any racing and fighting game. In the meantime enjoy watching Nintendo’s favorite son take Microsoft’s baby girl on a date.
After great speculation Nintendo has decided to send North America it’s very own Super Mario Bros. 25th anniversary collector’s edition Wii. The red console will come packed with new Wii-mote Plus, which features built-in MotionPlus for your Wii-mote. The bundle will also come with New Super Mario Bros. Wii, Wii Sports Resort, and a red Nunchuk. This special edition will run you $199.99 and will be available November 7th. We’re glad to finally get something like this but why not give us a Luigi-Green version as well? Remember it is Super Mario Bros.
