Super Mario 3D – demo gamplay with audio

While the demo doesn’t show anything really that exciting for the Mario series, it is a demo after all. I can’t wait to play Super Mario on my 3DS this year, it will be awesome!

Luigi’s Mansion 2 Full E3 Demo Gameplay

Nintendo World Report got a full hands on demo of Luigi’s Mansion 2 and I must say that the game is looking fantastic. To me, Luigi’s Mansion was a underrated title because of how short it was but it was still a fantastic game.

Super Mario 3D coming this year!

A New Look at Mario as He Jumps into 3D

Past Mario™ games have let the blue-suspendered hero roam around fully rendered 3D landscapes. Now, for the first time, players can see true depth of their environment without the need for special glasses. Super Mario™ is a 3D evolution of classic Mario platforming featuring new level designs and challenges.


* 3D visuals make it easier for players to judge the depths and distances in their environments. Players can more accurately judge the jump to the next platform or how far Mario is from a question block.
* New and familiar abilities add unique game-play strategies to the adventure. Mario can perform a rolling somersault attack or run fast with a dash move. Or, as Tanooki Mario, he can use his tail to hover, perform floating jumps or attacks.
* The Circle Pad gives players complete control to confidently move Mario through fun and challenging environments.
* New enemies include Goombas with tails, tall stacks of Goombas and a Piranha Plant that spits ink to obscure a player’s view.

Wow, doesn’t it look like a mix of Super Mario 64, Galaxy, and New Super Mario Bros.? I think it looks wonderful, I can’t wait to see more of the game as the months go on. At least we won’t have to wait too much longer to get a Mario game on 3DS! I need my Mario fix, so hurry up Nintendo!

Luigi’s Mansion 2 Info & Trailer

Ghosts Surround the Lean, Green Second String in 3D

Luigi™ is back on a mission to remove a bunch of stubborn ghosts from some spooky mansions. Armed with his trusty Poltergust ghost-sucking vacuum cleaner, Mario’s brother takes center stage to capture these pesky phantoms.


* Shining a light on the ghosts is no longer enough to stun them into immobility. Players need to activate a strobe function and release it to stun the ghosts before sucking them up with the Poltergust.
* Different types of ghosts haunt the different mansions. Luigi must figure out how to defeat each one of them and find hidden secrets to unlock new areas and treasure chests. These new elements add more variety and introduce new puzzle-solving mechanics.
* Players can use the Poltergust to help Luigi remove wallpaper to reveal hidden areas, clean up piles of treasure-hiding leaves or suck up stacks of coins and bills. But in reality, the nervous and reluctant Luigi just wants to get as far away from these ghosts as possible.
* The 3D visuals bring the mansions, ghosts and surroundings to life. Players experience all the haunting chills and fun the game has to offer.
* This game is the first follow-up to the 2001 Nintendo GameCubeTM launch title Luigi’s Mansion™.

Finally, I have been waiting for a Luigi’s Mansion sequel ever since I finished the first game almost 10 years ago. I can’t believe it has already been that long! We are gonna have to wait a while because the game isn’t coming until 2012. Dangit!
