The Super Mario Bros. Movie was re-released on Blu-ray as part of a Limited Edition Steelbook at UK retailer Zavvi. An unboxing video provided by Nintendo Impact Gaming can be found below.

Last month, new Mario toys were distributed in McDonald’s Happy Meals in both the UK and Japan. Get a closer look at all of the new offerings below.

The first wave of new Mario toys included with McDonald’s Happy Meals in the UK are here. Six more will be rolled out over the next three weeks. Check out an unboxing video of the first wave courtesy of Nintendo Life below.

A new wave of Mario toys are coming to McDonald’s Happy Meals. These are actually already out in Japan, but are on the way to the UK beginning on January 11.

Nintendo Life has now shared a commercial for the UK promotion as well as images of the toys. If that wasn’t enough, you can see the Happy Meal box and coloring sheet activities below.


San-ei Boeki announced a line of All Star plushies, featuring a mix of characters from Mario and Kirby titles such as Rosalina, Hammer Bros, Dry Bones and even Kirby.

The plushies will ship around March 18th, and a deadline for pre-ordering the plushies is set for February 7th. You can order the plushies here, and view pictures of them in the gallery below.


A month ago it was announced that Super Mario toys will be coming back as part of McDonald’s UK Happy Meal campaign. Now we have a look at the toys from the Super Mario universe, as a Twitter user got hold of the Mario one early.

It seems that there will be at least 8 figures as part of this advertising campaign. They are expected to be gifted with Happy Meals through this month of January and the first week of February. The promotional leaflets show that the Super Mario toys will be distributed in different waves for 4 weeks.

Additionally, all these toys are part of the same campaign that began today in all McDonald’s restaurants in Japan, though it looks like the UK will get fewer Super Mario figures.


Nintendo has put out a new video about all things Mario to promote Super Mario Run. It shows the various types of games he’s appeared in, characters from the franchise, and more. Check out the video below.

Shigeru Miyamoto was seen wearing a new shirt featuring Mario, who is donned in samurai gear, during his appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. Harmless, right? You would think so, but there’s apparently something going on there.

Nintendo’s Bill Trinen started the speculation train after he wrote the following on Twitter:

The shirt could be related to Super Mario Run. On the other hand, many believe it could have something to do with the upcoming Mario title for Switch. It’s worth noting that the kanji on Miyamoto’s shirt signifies “ran” (or “run”).


Nintendo and McDonald’s are teaming up once again for another Mario promotion in the UK. Between January 11 and February 7, Happy Meals will be based around the legendary character.

McDonald’s has all sorts of things planned for the event. An official note mentions balloons and a couple of activities plus an eBook promotion. You can s eethe full McDonald’s message after the break.

A wave of merchandise that mashes up both Mario and Pokemon has been revealed for a release in Japan. It is mostly based around Pikachu, and it includes plushes of him dressed as Mario and Luigi, New 3DS cover plates, a 3DS game cartridge book, hanafuda cards, and even cards for the Pokemon Trading Card Game. There will also be keychains, folders, notebooks, playing cards, and tee-shirts available only in the Pokemon Center in Kyoto. The goods will become available on October 29.
