Look at those smiling faces. They’ve had their difference in the past, but now they’ve bonded over the shared trauma of being stuffed and sold to children at the mall. Bowser and Mario join Yoshi, Toad, Luigi and Peach in Build-A-Bear’s new Super Mario collection this weekend.
Nintendo’s back in the game cereal game. Rumored for days and now confirmed, Super Mario Cereal becomes part of this nutritious breakfast in December. Every box is an Amiibo, unlocking gold coins and hearts in Super Mario Odyssey.
Super Mario Odyssey’s jump rope challenge is supposed to be a test of timing but a simple glitch has loaded the leaderboards with superhuman scores.
Super Mario Odyssey has tons of worlds and memorable sights. Thankfully, the game’s snapshot mode allows players to take pictures of their favorite memories or create bizarre pieces of modern art.
