Dreaming of a New Super Mario All-Stars

Yesterday brought forth the news via Famitsu that Nintendo had registered-- or perhaps re-registered-- a trademark for "Super Mario Collection," which was the Japanese name for what we in the West know as Super Mario All-Stars. The easiest conclusion to draw was that this was to pave the way for a Virtual Console release, but that seems almost too obvious. In addition, many fans have long held that Nintendo was unlikely to release it to the service, as the four original games and Super Mario World are all already present and accounted for. So what would the other option be? Our guess is possibly that of a release for the Nintendo DS, perhaps targeted specifically to Nintendo DSi owners. Why? Read More


Nintendo of Europe Proclaims Gray is the New Red

We've been witness to a lot of change from Nintendo recently, what with their newfound success in the Nintendo DS and Wii platforms and their new approach to expanding gaming's audience. And now, in Europe at least, it would seem that another change is ready to take effect. I'll spare you the German version of the press release, and go straight for the Google translation:Dear Media Partner, For several years, a new generation of Wii and Nintendo DS games have adorned themselves with a new logo, in discrete grey. In various publications the former logo, with red lettering, can still be seen. In the event that you have not already done so, we would like to sincerely ask you to now only use the current, gray Nintendo logo. Yours sincerely, The team from Nintendo & Popular PR.The change isn't sitting particularly well with some people, with various reasons cited:Yes, the grey one's been around for a while, but still. To completely kill off the traditional red one is strange! The red logo was synonymous with fun. A grey logo is synonymous with boring. Hopefully this only affects Nintendo Europe, and we don't see the same presser being issued from Nintendo of America or, worse, Nintendo Japan, as part of some global crackdown on fun. -- via KotakuMore after the cut.

Kirby Super Star Ultra is in the House

Nintendo dropped off two games for review today. The first one's Kirby Super Star Ultra. I am actually looking forward to playing the game, but I am not reviewing it, so it'll be Matt Green's pleasure to play through this one before it hits store shelves next week. Along with the game, Nintendo also sent us a "Happy 16th, Kirby" birthday card and a flyer. Inside the card is a fact sheet for the game. Clever. There's another shot of the card after the cut.

Nintendo Presence at E for All After All... Sort Of?

Last year, Nintendo practically had the run of the joint at E for All. But as we reported earlier, it seems that much like Leipzig, they've decided to take a pass this year on attending the convention, and will not be in attendance there. Except, that's not entirely true, it seems, as Nintendo will have some presence at the show:Nintendo's products will be playable and sold through the Target store at E for All, so our attendees will have access to Nintendo's great games and hardware. In fact, the Target store at E for All Expo will have many of the most popular and hard-to-find Nintendo games, hardware and accessories available. We are very excited about this opportunity for attendees -- whether it's Madden '09 or the Nintendo Wii, the Target Store at E for All will be stocked. -- Charlotte McCormack, IDG World ExpoWell, I guess that's something... if you're still having trouble finding Wii Fit, maybe. I guess they figured people wouldn't be into trying out Wii Music and Animal Crossing: City Folk on the show floor. On the other hand, they've got Wario Land: Shake It!, Kirby Super Star Ultra, and God help us all, Disaster: Day of Crisis that they could let people check out. So... yeah, I don't know either. On the other hand, if "accessories" means "swag" (that you pay for, anyway), then at least that's a definite plus. Read More


Artist 'Untoons' Kirby; Cannot Unsee

Ok, this whole "making cartoons realistic" thing has just officially gone too f#$%ing far. I was ok with the realistic Mario, and I wasn't horribly bothered by the realistic Bowser that soon followed. Nor the Goomba, or even the nursing Pikachu. Even the "realistic Sonic" was pretty cartoony. But this... this Kirby, sent by Ferryn to Halolz (if that's who made it)... it's just disturbing. Perhaps even appalling. You can see it, at your own risk, by clicking the button on your right. But... do you really want to? This is the kind of thing that could haunt your dreams for a week. Not to mention kill any desire to play Kirby Super Star Ultra, which is due out in just 12 days... and you wouldn't want to miss that, would you? So it's probably just better if you don't click it at all, and just disregard this post entirely. Realism... pah! Read More


Media: Wario Land: Shake It! Video Preview

Wario Land: Shake It! is very nearly upon us, with a release set alongside Kirby Super Star Ultra in late September. Before that time comes, GameTrailers has produced a nice video preview to give us the shakedown on what to expect from the greedy one's return to 2D platforming and exploration. Read More


Disaster's Delay of Crisis at an End?

One of the first games announced for the Wii alongside the unofficially canceled Project H.A.M.M.E.R., Disaster: Day of Crisis has taken a longer, quieter road. Now, after seeing its Japanese release for July postponed, it looks like its journey may finally be at an end, and perhaps a more positive one at that. Adam Sorice tips us off that the Office of Film and Literature Classification (OFLC), those lovely Aussie blokes who reveal all the stuff no game company wants them to (like Mega Man 9), rated the game Wednesday as Mature, for "violence, themes, and infrequent coarse language."Keep in mind that OFLC rating applies only to Australia and that we have no idea when it will be released — or if the rating is an indication it will be released any time soon. Perhaps we'll see it at Games Convention next week? Nah, doubt it. -- Michael McWhertor, KotakuBut when, if ever, might we expect a North American release? See one bit of speculation after the cut.

Kirby's Happy Again in Super Star Ultra

Behold! American boxart has always been known for its changes, be they good or (usually) bad from those of their Japanese contemporaries, and since the close of the N64 era, Kirby has been no different. Many a fan of Nintendo's "tough creampuff" has been mildly irritated by Redmond's decision to give Kirby an "attitude," to make him a "badass." But no more! As you can plainly see above, Kirby found his smile! "The transformations from pleased as punch to enraged were most noticeable in Kirby's journeys to America, going from happy go lucky to in a lather in games like Kirby Squeak Squad. Kirby Super Star Ultra changes all that, as Kirby's gay old times are back, with nary a furrowed brow to be seen." -- Michael McWhertor, Kotaku Click the above link for a recap of the many faces of "Angry" Kirby over the past few years. Of the comments, one of my favorites is "Obviously he's pissed in the Amazing Mirror cover because his mobile phone isn't getting any coverage." Read More


Nintendo Releases Second-Half Line-Up of Games

In an interesting twist (I guess, maybe they do this all the time, and I never noticed), Nintendo has released their US game line-up for the second half of 2008 and into 2009... to Europe. Some highlights included on the list are Spider-Man: Web of Shadows, Call of Duty World at War, Guitar Hero World Tour, Skate It, Mushroom Men, two Star Wars games, Animal Crossing: City Folk, Mario Super Sluggers, Sonic Unleashed, Ghostbusters, and quite a bit more. Better still, Nintendo says that this is an "incomplete" list, meaning more titles could sneak their way into the lineup. Here's hoping more from the Big N themselves. For the full bill of goods (as it stands), both good and bad, click the jump. Read More
