Remember that one news item last year that suggested Nintendo was interested in creating animated movies based on its iconic characters? Normally that’s the kind of announcement that slips into the ether and is never discussed again, but could there actually be momentum this time? Today the Wall Street Journal (article blocked by paywall) reported […]

by Peter Paltridgeon June 15, 2017
The day Super Mario Odyssey was formally revealed at E3, representatives of Nintendo spoke of a possible multiplayer feature but said they were “still working on it.” Today in the Treehouse a co-op function was demoed for the first time.

E3 2017: Hats Off To Super Mario Odyssey

by Peter Paltridgeon June 13, 2017
Super Mario Odyssey is now playable on the E3 show floor, and journalists can’t get enough. It’s the first open-world Mario title since Super Mario Sunshine, and it’s making a big impression. Until today, all we knew about Mario’s new hat (now named “Cappy”) was that it had eyeballs. Turns out that hat has just […]

by Peter Paltridgeon January 13, 2017
Last evening Nintendo at last revealed all in regards to their upcoming Switch console/handheld hybrid.

by Peter Paltridgeon September 23, 2016
Nintendo’s next Paper Mario game, subtitled Color Splash, isn’t due out for two weeks. Ordinarily we would have had to wait that long, but not today. For some reason, the “pre-order” button on the Nintendo E-shop changed to “buy” and all pre-loaded digital copies of the game became functional. The problem was quickly fixed, but […]

Nintendo made an unexpected appearance at the start of Apple’s latest press conference, to reveal their expanded mobile plans. The bad news is that the announced Animal Crossing and Fire Emblem apps have been delayed. But in their place is the one and only Mario with Super Mario Run! I like the Nintendo that tries […]

Pikmin, Yoshi, Mario And More From The Latest Nintendo Direct

by Peter Paltridgeon September 1, 2016
A new Nintendo Direct livestreamed out of the Treehouse today, focusing entirely on the 3DS and filling in some holes in its current release schedule. Unfortunately there’s a lot of wheel-spinning involved here. Half of these games are retreads of Wii U games, when they’re not additions to existing games. We know Nintendo is saving […]
