Fortnite’s Playground mode is a good way for players to practice their skills among friends, but it’s also becoming fertile ground for ambitious creations. Instead of building towers to snipe from, players can build non-competitively, similar to a shared Minecraft server. As a result, you can get glorious monuments…
Nintendo is bringing three new 2DS XL designs to Japan over the next month, with Mario Kart, Animal Crossing and Minecraft handhelds due to be released.
If your Nintendo Labo cardboard is lying around in a post-launch pile, you could try digging it out and playing some Mario Kart 8 Deluxe with it.
There’s a new Sonic racing game coming, one that ostensibly brings an element of teamwork to the action. So why did I feel like I was the only one pulling any weight, during my demo? There is no “I” in team, but there is one in “Team Sonic.”
Chocolate Mountain doesn’t look like much. The Mario Kart 64 level is sparse compared to others in the game, filled only with varying shades of brown and a dense fog. But the unassuming level is one of the game’s best for astounding speedrunning records, thanks to the evolution of one particular shortcut trick.
Matthias Rustemeyer has been trying to collect every individual Mario Kart 64 course world record for half a decade, but thanks to Daniel Burbank that job just keeps getting harder. Burbank has been getting better and better times on the game’s lone Donkey Kong race track since the beginning of the year and shows no…
Wario is a libertarian. Bowser is a fascist. We know this about them, in our hearts, but no one has ever sat down and categorized the political leanings of the Mushroom Kingdom’s best-known residents.
For five years now, Matthias Rustemeyer has been on a quest to nab the world record for each individual track in Mario Kart 64. With only one record left for him to break, other Mario Kart 64 speedrunners have risen up to try to stop him.
Last night in Tokyo, a 30-something-year-old tourist from Singapore made a wrong turn, driving a rental MariCar (the go-kart company that Nintendo is suing for copyright infringement) up on the sidewalk and crashing it into a restaurant sign. This is not a first.
Goodbye, Boardwalk; hello, Rainbow Road. Hasbro’s latest twist on Monopoly is a Mario Kart theme. And like last year’s Monopoly Gamer, it’s no simple reskin of the classic game.
Mario Kart: Tour will be “free to start.” That’s according to DeNA exec Isao Moriyasu during a recent financial briefing. Nintendo is developing the game, while DeNA is handling the server, online infrastructure, and backend issues.
First Mario, then Animal Crossing, now Mario Kart is on its way to iPhone and Android devices.
The King of Random made this remote-controlled red shell for a YouTube video, and I am now wondering why this isn’t something I can put in a gift guide somewhere.
Ever wonder what it would be like for a bot to learn how to play Super Mario Kart? YouTuber and programmer SethBling’s newest creation MariFlow uses machine learning to create a bot that can zip through Donut Plains 1 just like a human.
Last week, a Nintendo Switch update made it possible to share short videos of select first-party games on social media. The feature isn’t perfect, but it doesn’t matter. Right now, despite being in the middle of fall game season, many video game fans are talking about months-old Nintendo releases instead.
Every single time you do a drift in Mario Kart, you charge up a speed boost that unleashes when you exit the drift. But there’s a lot more happening under the hood when it comes to this speed boost: how fast it charges, how long it lasts, and whether or not it’s actually going to shave any seconds off your final time.…
Mario Kart Arcade GP VR isn’t a game that you can buy, but a virtual reality installation in Bandai Namco’s VR Zone attraction in Shinjuku, Tokyo. It promises to put you in the driver’s seat for a Mario Kart race, and that it does. It’s pretty fun, but you’re not really missing out on much if you don’t play it.
