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.

There hasn’t been a proper new Metroid game in seven years.

If you venture out to your local Target store this week, you may notice that some things look a little….different.
