How to unlock everything in Smash 64

The original Super Smash Bros. on Nintendo 64 is where it all started – and, technically, it’s the reason this site exists in the first place! Despite its age, it’s still fun to play. For being the first in the series, it’s held up surprisingly well over twenty years later. There are only four unlockable characters and just one unlockable stage, but we’ve got the full run-down on how to access all of them right here!

All Mask locations in The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask

At the time of writing, The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask is close to an official release on Nintendo Switch Online’s Expansion Pack. Given that masks are the central theme of the game, it makes sense that some players would want to collect all of them. We’ve got a fully updated list right here! Please keep in mind that the mask requirements listed are only for the Nintendo 64 version of the game — some masks may be obtained in different ways in the Nintendo 3DS version.

How to get the Couple’s Mask in The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask

The Couple’s Mask is by far and away the most time-consuming mask to obtain in the Nintendo 64 version of Majora’s Mask. At the time of writing, it’s coming very soon to the Nintendo Switch Online Expansion Pack. If you’re going to try and trudge through the Anju and Kafei side quest, we’ve got you covered! We have a full step-by-step guide right here, so let’s get right into it.

Super Mario 64 – Full Review

A few months back, we reviewed Super Mario Galaxy. A few weeks back, we reviewed Super Mario Sunshine. And now it’s finally time to review the final piece of the Super Mario 3D All-Stars collection: Super Mario 64! This game’s got a lot of history. It first was released in 1996 for the Nintendo 64, and set many an important milestone for 3D platformers. It’s been showing its age for a long time, though, and I personally believe the 3D All-Stars version shows said age most prominently.

Before we begin, I’d like to acknowledge Super Mario 64’s place in history. It was a huge step forward, and the developers’ innovations set the standard for decades to come. But it isn’t 1996 anymore; it’s 2020, so I have to take a look at Super Mario 64 from a 2020 perspective. And if there’s one thing we know about 2020 perspectives, it’s that they’re usually negative. No worries, though — we’re going to balance positive and negative and take a complete look at the game that started it all! (And by all, I mean “the 3D Super Mario games.)

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 afterward, 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.
