Wii U

Nintendo has gone live with new North American commercials to promote Paper Mario: Color Splash. Check out the brief videos below.

These days, it’s easy to associate Sonic with Nintendo. The character has appeared in Olympics games with Mario, and SEGA even partnered with the big N on some exclusive games. During the early ’90s, however, things were much different as Mario and Sonic were pretty big rivals.

Game Informer put up a new piece today about how Sonic eventually landed on Nintendo platforms following SEGA’s exit from the gaming hardware business. It contains some interesting quotes from the likes of creator Yuji Naka, Sonic developer Takashi Iizuka, and even Shigeru Miyamoto.

Read up on some noteworthy comments below. You can find Game Informer’s article here for more.

Update: Here’s the regular, latest episode of Nyannyan Neko Mario Time:

The latest episode of Nintendo’s Japanese show Nyannyan Neko Mario Time has now gone live, specifically focusing on Paper Mario: Color Splash. We’ve included it below.

Many of you are aware that LEGO Dimensions was given several new packs today. New content includes Harry Potter, Adventure Time, Ghostbusters, and more. Unfortunately, we’re hearing that Wii U players are unable to access content pertaining to the new packs.

The issue all comes down to updates. Players need to download the new levels as patches. Although figures work in the game, without the updates, these stages are simply inaccessible.

It’s unclear when the situation will be rectified. If we receive any updates, we’ll let you know.


Among the new packs available for LEGO Dimensions today is one based on Adventure Time. Get another look at what it has to offer below.
