Latest News / Super Mario Maker 2 Coming to the Switch This June

Super Mario Maker 2 is coming to the Nintendo Switch this June.  More details to come...

If you are a subscriber to Nintendo Switch Online, Super Mario Bros. 2 is now available in the Nintendo Entertainment System application.  There's some other stuff available as well (Kirby's Adventure, special modes for Metroid and Blaster Master), but that's nothing compared to the power of Luigi's flutter jumps!

Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story + Bowser Jr.'s Journey was released in Japan in late December, and it may be off to a fairly slow start.  Famitsu sales data tracked by the site Game Data Library indicates that the game has only sold about 20,000 copies in its first month of release.  Sales could always pick up, of course, but it's not quite lighting up the charts at the moment.
Nintendolife wrote about this, noting that the game is currently one of the worst selling Mario titles ever released -- we'll have to see how sales do over the next few months!

OK. Understood.

It sounds like everything is working, then...

If you've been thinking about getting a copy of New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe but haven't wanted to spend $59.99, you might be in luck.  It's currently available for $39.99 from "Daily Steals" on Facebook Marketplace.  You may have to wait a bit, as the special offer requires five buyers (you "join" a group of other buyers; once five people join, they ship the items).  Additionally, the copies could be from one of several different regions ("USA, UK, MSE, UAE, LTN"), but the Switch is region free so that shouldn't be a problem when it comes to playing the games.

Did you know that Retro Studios once wanted to make a Mario Football game?  If that had ever happened, we might be using it today to make Super Bowl predictions!

If you're playing the Switch version of New Super Mario Bros U., you might have noticed that the jump button doubles as the mid-air spin-twist move.  If that's messing up your game, it's possible to turn it off!  On the title screen, hold in the left joystick for a few seconds.  If you hear Nabbit shout, then the jump button will only work for jumping!  You can still spin-twist in mid-air, but your jump button is free!

Game Blog / Last Day to Spend Points on the Wii Shop!
« on: January 30, 2019, 05:37:51 PM »
Today is the last day to spend points in the Wii Shop channel.  While adding points was disabled last year, any points in your Wii account must be used before the end to day.  After January 30th, purchases will be disabled on the Wii Shop (although downloading previous purchases will be possible, at least in the immediate future.)

While there are many Virtual Console Mario titles, don't forget about Dr. Mario Online RX (sans online) and WarioWare DIY Showcase!
