Halloween gear for Nintendo fans and psycho killers ⊟

Hoping to dress up as your favorite Nintendo character this halloween? But you’d also like to go on a killing spree if possible? No worries, the two plans don’t need to be mutually exclusive, thanks to these frightening Link masks (via Dorkly) and Mario hoodies (via Nadia Oxford). I’m not sure where you can buy them, though. This might be one of those things where they acquire you.

Mario clock and Zelda shirt by The King of Games ⊟

The usual warning applies with these items: you want them in your life, on your wall, body, etc… but you don’t want to know how much they cost. Let’s just leave it at appreciation. I love that heart embroidery on the shirt.

Super cute Mario/Zelda stationery ⊟

Artist J.C.T. Holmes created these notecard sets featuring either Wind Waker or Peach/Rosalina themes, for $8 each (per set of 6). I love the idea of writing people letters on something that looks like it should be used to send a powerup to Mario!

Dare you engage the Mario Cube? ⊟

Is your constitution hardy enough, your will strong enough to approach the grand MARIOCUBE?

I don’t see why not, it’s just a chair that you can store stuff in. NCSX is offering two varieties shipping in November, at $50 each.

Lucina, Snake, Mario figures from Wonder Festival ⊟

New toy announcements and pics from Wonder Festival 2014 Summer include Figma Lucina, Nendoroid Solid Snake, and a Nendoroid of that guy in the red shirt who always seems to be hanging out with Luigi.

That alternate head for Solid Snake is fucking my shit all the way up. I cannot handle this. All these via @zerochan!

Weirdest infinite Mario 1UP trick ever ⊟

Performed in level 5-2 of Super Mario Bros. 2 (Lost Levels). It involves passing through a couple of walls and disappearing into a pipe somehow? I’d love to try to replicate this.

Oh, do you want more weird 1UP videos in Super Mario Bros. 2? Because Games Haya has a playlist of nothing but that. Via Famicom no Neta.

New Converse X Mario One Star ⊟

Genius use of the Converse star logo on these. They ship in August, for Japan only, and come in red and green. Oh, and they’re like $215 a pair, so just color some little eyes into your own One Stars instead. Via @farmboyinjapan!

Mario White 3DS XL for US region ⊟
Well, all right. It’s not FOR the US region, but it is compatible with the US region. I spotted a weird listing on Play-Asia the other day for this “Mario White” 3DS XL, with copies of New Super Mario Bros. 2 and Pro Evolution Soccer 2011, shipping in July. It specifically said it was US region compatible… I thought the whole thing was a mistake. 
But apparently not. NintendoTweet mentioned that it was actually being released in Southeast Asia (which uses the same region code as us for 3DS) by Maxsoft, the Nintendo distributor in that area. And this Yahoo article has confirmation from Maxsoft. 
So yeah, looks like you can order yourself a really cool, previously China-only Mario White 3DS XL (that comes with an old-ass soccer game) and play your US games on it.

Whoa, a new infinite 1-up trick for Super Mario Bros. ⊟

It’s E3 week, so expect lots of news from the bleeding edge of video game technology, like this amazing 1-up trick in Super Mario Bros., by S Haya (via Famicom no Neta). I can’t imagine the combination of virtuoso-level playing, tool-assisted replaying, and ingenuity that led someone to finally hit upon this method. Skip to 2:40 to see it in action!

Here’s how it works: start a two-player game in “hard mode,” die as Mario in 1-2, get to 5-2 as Luigi, die to a Hammer Bro while climbing a hidden vine, drop back into 1-2 as Mario, climb the bugged vine, and smack Buzzy Beetles a million times for easy 1-ups. Famicom no Neta’s Google-translated post calls this technique “violent buttocks.”

The best part is that if you have the skill to pull this thing off, you definitely don’t need any extra lives.

Photos with Mario app shows up in US eShop ⊟

Surprise??? The augmented reality Mario photo app sneaked into the US eShop this weekend, after a year of availability in Japan! Like in Japan, the app works with special Mario-themed eShop point cards. Those are available at Target for $10 each (says NintendoLinked) – or you can just use the images here (via GN)! Thanks, @endynomni!

Bonus game, Wii U bundle for Mario Kart 8 ⊟

In a Nintendo Direct released today (and not yet watched by me…) Nintendo revealed the Mario Kart 8 Wii U bundle, containing the game, system, red Mario Wiimote Plus and Mario Kart red Wii Wheel. It comes out May 30 for $330.

If you get that, or any copy of Mario Kart 8, you also get access to a free downloadable game:  New Super Mario Bros. U, Pikmin 3, The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD or Wii Party U. Not a bad deal for something you might already have been buying!

There’s more in the video, like new characters (Pink Gold Peach, Baby Rosalina, Mii), new items, and new online functionality (upload highlight reels to YouTube).

Get out on the links and let people know you mean business. Specifically, Nintendo’s licensing business, to the tune of nine hundred dollars.
I’m actually really impressed that so soon after Nintendo announced intent to license its characters for more products, we already have this and the Mario Kart Power Wheels.
