After announcing by the time Super Mario Odyssey for the Switch that Mario was NOT only a plumber anymore, Nintendo back paddled this week and announced once more that Mario is actually what everyone knows since the 80’s: Mario is actually a plumber!
The report showed on Nintendo Everything, and it states that Nintendo updated Mario’s Japanese bio, adding back his original profession.
This is just a quick update. If you want to know more about the Super Mario Encyclopedia, make sure you read our full article about it right here.
Anyways, we have an update on the Limited Edition of the Encyclopedia that will make Mario fans rejoice! The $80 limited edition of the Super Mario Encyclopedia will come in a surprise block slipcase with an actual surprise inside: There are four different holofoil covers
(Super Mushroom, Fire Flower, Super Star, or 1-Up) and there’s no way of telling which one’s inside before purchase. How cool is that?
Did you knew that Nintendo used to license their classic games to be played in personal computers in Japan? That’s right! The strict “never-licensing anything” Nintendo of Japan used to allow the release of their NES and Arcade titles in Japanese computers of the 80’s, and one of these instances was a certain Donkey Kong game released on the Sharp X1 Computer in late 1984 called “Donkey Kong 3: Dai Gyakushuu“, also know as “Donkey Kong 3: The Great Counterattack“.
Hudson Soft was granted the right to port Nintendo’s classics to these computers, and while many other Nintendo games released for computers had been dumped in the past and preserved forever on the digital world, this obscure title has not enjoyed the same fate… until now!
The gaming community was taken by surprise today with the Steam release of Chrono Trigger, the classic SNES RPG, considered by many, the best game ever made on that platform.
However, like other previous Square Enix classics ports released on Steam, this port suffers from similar issues which makes it a very poor port. It seems to me that Square Enix is not, or does not want to make it right with it’s classic titles on PC.
Have you had the opportunity to snag one of those “The Legend of Zelda” reference books? Dark Horse publishing seems to be pretty happy with the success that the Zelda’s reference guide achieved and decided to invest on a Mario guide as well, focusing on three decades of Nintendo gaming on the Super Mario Encyclopedia.
The Super Mario Encyclopedia is an exhaustive look at nearly every Super Mario game Nintendo’s made, from Super Mario Bros. in 1985 to 2015’s Super Mario 3D World.
While Michael Jackson had a close relationship with Sega, appearing in Space Channel 5 and starring in Michael Jackson’s Moonwalker, there have long been stories of his involvement in the Sonic the Hedgehog 3 soundtrack.
Back in 2009, Kotaku reported that the rumor had been confirmed by Jackson’s composer and musical director Brad Buxer, who said Jackson’s uncredited compositions ended up in the final soundtrack.
