Photos with Mario was silently released on the 3DS eShop this week, allowing you to snap pictures of Mario (and his friends) in the real world, using special AR-enhanced eShop cards.  According to the application's manual, the special AR eShop cards will be available at Target, although there is no indication as to when they will be available.  In the meantime, you might try using the scans over at the AR Cards Database, made from the AR cards released in Japan.  The AR Cards Database has the three cards referenced in the Photos with Mario manual (Mario, Peach, and a Goomba), as well as an additional three cards (Luigi, Bowser, and a Koopa Troopa).

Note: To download Photos with Mario, just search for it by name on the 3DS eShop.

Game Blog / Come On, Come On... Do the Donkey Kong...

My battle with Donkey Kong Country: Tropic Freeze continues.  While Scrooge McCranky is a fantastic addition, I must say that I miss his banter.

Anyone else feeling shorted on Cranky's... crankiness?

Game Blog / Dear readers: Anyone know of any SM3DW deals?
« on: November 21, 2013, 02:28:48 AM »
Hey there, Mario fans -- does anyone out there know of any deals/sales/promos for Super Mario 3D World?  If so, share them with us!  The pickings seem kind of slim this time.  Are any retailers offering a discounted price, or special items for preorders or first day purchases?

This year is the 25th anniversary of Super Mario Bros. 2, but very little mention has been made of that fact.  This seems particularly odd given that EAD Tokyo has given us a new Mario platformer starring Mario, Luigi, Toad, and Peach.

True, "Super Mario USA" isn't 25 this year, which is probably why this particular anniversary fell off Nintendo's radar(scope); however, given the connections between Super Mario Bros. 2 and Super Mario 3D World, one might expect some mention of the fact by NOA.

Has anyone out there noticed anyone referencing the anniversary of SMB2?

Latest News / Yoshi's Cookie has crumbled
« on: October 18, 2013, 07:04:05 PM »
Yoshi's Cookie has been removed from the Wii Shop Channel, with no crumbs remaining.  The title can no longer be downloaded, even by those who had previously purchased the title.  If the game is currently installed on a Wii, it can be played or copied to an SD card.  Current owners should be careful to avoid deleting the title from their Wii; once it's deleted, it can't be reclaimed.
