Super Mario Crossover 3.0
How does Exploding Rabbit/Jay Pavlina do it? How does he top himself with every Super Mario Crossover release and put out something completely unexpected but so fun (from what I can tell in this trailer, at least)? You’ll get to play this around May/June 2013 when it releases for PC.
It’s a travesty Nintendo will likely never make anything like this, or allow someone to put out this remix on its consoles. The fact that this is of questionable legality means our legal system is worthless. This should be not only legal, but mandatory.
Dracula’s plumbing needs work
Just a goofy Super Mario Bros. joke in Castlevania: Lords of Shadow - Mirror of Fate, found by That Boy Ain’t Right.
Let’s all go into the weekend in this spirit: stretched out on a cushion, just playing whatever makes us happy, whether it’s Fire Emblem or Mega Man 2 – oh yeah, Mega Man 2’s out on eShop this week! – or something from the backlog.
Super Mario Kimono
And a Blooper scarf! Hiyoko-G has a neat round-up collecting snapshots of people in Japan wearing video game apparel.
Here’s the first page for “Old Super Mario,” a touching comic by Daiki Sugimoto about what happens when heroes grow old, friends pass or drift away, and your final years are spent alone. It’s not your typical cheesy Mario comic — that’s why I wanted to share it with you all here.
You can read the entire comic, republished here with the author’s permission, after the post break. The pages should be read from right to left:
“Mario Items” by Scott Balmer. You can download this pleasant illustration as a background for your PC, tablet, or mobile device here — you can even get a set of icons based on the power-ups, enemies, and items, too.
Super Mario Bros. Sound Bank Retro, a new item by Media Factory. These block banks are SMB-themed, but are in keeping with the advertised focus of New Super Mario Bros. 2 as well, said focus being coin coin coin!
I haven’t seen these available on online import shops yet, but the retail price is just ¥399 (about $5) so you won’t have to smash your previous bank.

Six swanky Mario, Animal Crossing, and Rhythm Heaven handcloths offered as prizes through Japan’s Club Nintendo loyalty program (click for larger images).
The 34x90 cm cloths are hand-dyed using Meiji-era techniques — you can see the process here — so don’t be the thoughtless guy who actually ends up staining/ruining one of these towels. It’s best to use them as intended: hung on your walls for display, never to be touched, even if you happen to spill juice all over your carpet.

A new series of Super Mario Bros. “Body Covers” for 3DS, by Keys Factory. See? You don’t need a 3DS XL – not when your regular 3DS accommodates fun accessories like these.
They ship later this month from Play-Asia, for $17.49 each.

Theatrhythm Super Mario Bros. created as a microgame in WarioWare DIY by Dragonmario2011. Here’s a Theatrhythm Hatsune Miku game he created, too!
It’s unlikely we’ll ever see either actually made, but I wouldn’t be surprised if Square Enix produced a Theatrhythm Dragon Quest (and didn’t release it in the States).
Here’s an early preview for when Nintendo shows more of New Super Mario Bros. 2 on its redesigned 3DS at E3 next month. These three dimensional graphics are amazing.

“Mushroom Kingdom Map” by Bill Mudron, a 24 X 36-inch print that brings together the worlds of Super Mario Bros. 1 and 3, Super Mario World, Yoshi’s Island, Super Mario RPG, and, somehow, Super Mario Kart.
Mudron explains that the map is “make sense of the evolving landscape of Princess Toadstool’s kingdom.” You can hang this piece in your home for $45.
