Super Mario 35th Anniversary games revealed

Nintendo has finally lifted the lid on their plans for Super Mario’s 35 anniversary. Among other things, we’re getting two brand-new games (and by that, I mean they’re not brand-new): Super Mario 3D All-Stars and Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury. The former releases later this month (September 18) and the latter releases in February 2021 alongside new Cat Mario and Cat Peach amiibo. We have no idea what they do, but hey — they’re still making new amiibo!

Super Mario 3D All-Stars includes high-resolution versions of Super Mario 64, Super Mario Sunshine, and Super Mario Galaxy. Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury includes the main game, a new expansion, and online multiplayer. Preorders are available for both, but you’ll have to act fast: for whatever reason, Super Mario 3D All-Stars is only available for purchase until March 2021. That means you won’t be able to buy it afterwards, but you will be able to keep playing it. And you’ll be able to redownload it from Nintendo eShop. Gotta love placing false scarcity on games.

Super Mario All-Stars (the one that already existed) is now available on Nintendo Switch Online’s SNES app. It’s free for anybody who already has a Nintendo Switch Online subscription. They also announced that Super Mario furniture is coming to Animal Crossing: New Horizons soon. Fun! And a new Splatoon 2 Splatfest. Either way, there’s just a few weeks until 3D All-Stars is released! Feel free to watch the full presentation by following this link.

How amiibo might have behaved in Super Smash Bros. Melee

We’re all familiar with training amiibo in Super Smash Bros. 4 and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Having appeared in two consecutive titles (three if you count Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS), amiibo training might even be considered a series mainstay from this point on. But if amiibo training had been present in earlier titles? Today we’re going to take a look at AI in Super Smash Bros. Melee and try to figure out how amiibo may have behaved.

Super Smash Bros. Melee – Unlockables Guide

Super Smash Bros.  Melee is well over ten years old, but its community is very much alive. Its competitive metagame really picked up after the game’s inclusion in EVO 2013’s tournament lineup. Simply put, Melee is still relevant to this very day. For players who decide to get in on the action, there are a number of unlockables to obtain.
