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).

Mario Golf golf bag ⊟
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.

Here’s a pooping Mario ⊟
Jacob Ashley of The Wooden Arcade crafted this lovely scene of Mario pooping. Poor Mario doesn’t always have a toilet around when he needs one, so I’m happy to see this scene of a quiet constitutional.

More Sonic Boom makeovers ⊟

Damnnnnn, Luigi. What happened to your neck? The Mario group comes from Andrew Dickman, Mega Man from Ryan Jampole, Robotnik’s legs (lol) from Sean Cunningham, and Kirby (awwwww) from Tyson Hesse.

Thanks to Tiny Cartridge readers Dylan Starks and Bururian for sharing these with us in the original Sonic Boom post!

Back to being number two ⊟

Back to being the younger brother. The second player. The sidekick. The timid character with the silly jump. We had some fun times in 2013, didn’t we? :o(

Ultra Detail Luigi through the ages ⊟

Medicom has another set of its great Ultra Detail figures, featuring both Mario Bros.-style Luigi and Luigi’s Mansion 2 Luigi, in honor of the Year of Luigi!

There are also some other characters (Red Luigi, Luigi’s Dinosaur Friend), and this Baby Yoshi set that I love. Each is 940 yen and won’t ship until September of 1 After Luigi (2014)! I’ve seen the figures on Amiami so far. Thanks to the anonymous tipster who alerted me to these!

What’s up, off-model Bowser ⊟
You guessed it (and saw the watermark in several places): this li’l guy is a Dealextreme offering. Probably wouldn’t be able to see over the wheel of his Bowser car, poor guy.

Paper Mario, Uncle Scrooge, & more in Spelunky

Besides its Daily Challenges feature, one of the bonuses of the PC version for Spelunky HD that’s not in the PSN editions is the ability to mod the game. Here you can see several edits people made to play as Mario, Pauline, and even Uncle Scrooge. They’ve also skinned the stages and swapped out the damsels you can rescue. You can see and grab these mods from BoogieLove, Headbox, and Radioduke at the Spelunky forums.

Have I mentioned how jealous I am that the PS Vita version doesn’t have Daily Challenges? Apparently Spelunky creator Derek Yu says it’s a possibility that the PSN versions will receive it somehow, and that he intends to discuss the matter with BlitWorks (the studio that ported Spelunky to PSN). There’s no guarantee that anything will come out of those talks, and I wouldn’t hold my breath for that update, but at least there’s hope.

While we’re talking about Spelunky and Nintendo-themed mods, someone used a hack and finally found a use for the Kid Icarus-esque eggplant item. This seems impossible to pull off without cheating.
