Mario Kart: Fury Road is the most essential mashup trailer of the year

Are you ready to see the best mashup of 2015? It’s subtle, it’s brilliant and it’s one of those things that you’ll never get out of your head after you watch it. Kris Sundberg, a VFX artist who worked on films such as Divergent and Into the Storm, has remade the Mad Max: Fury Road trailer with Mario Kart visual effects, and I think I’ve watched it a dozen times already.

Amazing: Nintendo hires a man named Bowser

Amazing: Nintendo hires a man named Bowser

This is even better than the former Apple employee named Sam Sung. Nintendo this week announced that it’s hired a new vice president of sales named Doug Bowser whose last name just happens to be the same name of the iconic villain from Super Mario Bros. Nintendo is fully aware of how funny this is, which is why its press release emphasized that Bowser “brings decades of experience, not fire breath, to his new role.” More →

Splatoon preview: The Wii U has its GoldenEye

It has been 11 months since I last played Splatoon. At the time, I couldn’t quite grasp its appeal. A first-person, action-packed shooter for the Wii U aimed at kids didn’t sounds like something I’d rush out to buy on launch day, but Nintendo clearly has a lot of faith in this new IP, so I decided to give it another shot at a big Splatoon event the developer held in NYC on Wednesday.

Has Nintendo written off the Wii U as a lost cause?

It’s been almost a year since the release of Mario Kart 8 on the Wii U, but Nintendo is still giving players new reasons to jump back in with surprisingly frequent paid DLC releases and free updates. In a recent Nintendo Direct, the company announced that a new 200cc mode would be coming to the console racer, but you need to see it to understand just how fast it can be. More →

Gameboy add-on for the iPhone may soon be a reality

Gameboy add-on for the iPhone may soon be a reality

What started out as an April Fool’s joke for nostalgic video gamers may wind up becoming an incredible product. Last week, Hyperkin — a video game peripherals and accessories company — released some concept art, in jest, for a device it called the “Smart Boy.” The device was positioned as an iPhone 6 add-on that would enable users to play old school Gameboy and Gameboy Color games on their iPhone.

As it turns out, interest in what was then a non-existent product was so strong that Hyperkin is now actually working to develop the “Smart Boy” and make it a reality.

Nintendo’s Wii U isn’t the bomb you think it is, and here are the games to prove it

Nintendo’s Wii U isn’t the bomb you think it is, and here are the games to prove it

Looking at the sales figures over the past few years, it’s hard not to see the Wii U as a major disappointment for Nintendo. It’s certainly been a step down from the unprecedented success of the Wii, but looking beyond the numbers, the Wii U has slowly accumulated a killer collection of exclusive titles since its launch in 2012.

Download this incredible Super Mario Galaxy fan creation before Nintendo shuts it down

It’s a good week to be a Nintendo fan. At least, it would be if Nintendo would stop ruining everything.

Earlier this week, a fan released a remake of the first level of Super Mario 64 built in Unity. Not only was it incredibly well done, but you could even play it in your browser. Sadly, the proprietors of the no-fun-zone at Nintendo decided that it was copyright infringement, and forced the fan to take it down.

Days later, another fan has released yet another remake, but this time its from Super Mario Galaxy. More →
