Mario

Out of the blue, Monopoly Gamer: Mario Kart launched this week. The board game is out now at GameStop stores now with other retailers to follow. Get a closer look at the product with the unboxing video below.

This summer, Super Mario toys will be returning to McDonald’s Happy Meals in the UK. It’s the fourth time that Mario will be featured at the restaurant chain.

McDonald’s is planning three Happy Meal box designs based on Mario, Luigi, and Yoshi. They’ll also feature “puzzles and activities as well as perforated props which will help them transform into one of the gang”. As for the actual toys, ten different ones will be offered.

Here’s what mentioned in the staff memo:

When the Super Mario Cereal originally hit stores, it came with amiibo functionality. The box could be used similar to other amiibo in titles like Super Mario Odyssey.

Interestingly, it seems that a new version of the Super Mario Cereal is starting to find its way into stores without the functionality. The NFC tag is completely gone. You can still eat the cereal, but it looks like the original box is being phased out.

Fans will be treated to one of four covers – Super Mushroom, Fire Flower, Super Star, or the 1-Up Mushroom, and each one is “accentuated with shimmering holofoil”.

One of the notable discoveries made with the datamine for Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp’s latest update is a Super Mario crossover event. Nintendo has now started to tease this on the game’s official Japanese Twitter account. A short while ago, the image above was sent out.

Nintendo hasn’t said when the event will be starting. However, March 10 – which is Mario Day – would certainly make a lot of sense.
