Smash Bros Mii Fighter Reggie

Former Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime has spoken about the memorable reveal trailer for the Mii Fighter in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate for Wii U / 3DS.

Nintendo has had many special moments in its online presentations over the years, but this one in particular stood out. In it, Reggie went into battle with late Nintendo global president Satoru Iwata, complete with punches and headbutts. The fun video was a way of introducing fans to the idea that they could use any Mii character they create as a fighter in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U / 3DS.

Mario Rabbids Sparks Hope Rayman

Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope is fast approaching, and Ubisoft recently held a hands-on event for the media. After spending a few hours with the game, we also had a chance to speak with associate producer Quentin Correggi. Correggi touched on combat changes that have been made compared to Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle, the work and detail being put into the animation, his excitement for bringing back Rayman, and more.

You can read our full discussion with Correggi. We also have a video version at the end of this post.

It’s been a long time coming, but in just a couple of weeks, we’ll finally be getting a first glimpse at the Super Mario Bros. animated movie. We’ve known about the film for years, but Nintendo and Illumination have yet to share any sort of look at the film. That changes in early October though, as it’s been confirmed that the first teaser trailer will debut at New York Comic Con.

You could make the case that Nintendo has a lot riding on this film. As fans know, the company really hasn’t explored the movie space. After the 1993 live-action Mario film which was derided, Nintendo wasn’t too interested in exploring movies.

With the animated Mario movie trailer coming in very soon, what do you hope that the teaser will show? What do you personally expect from the video? Do you have any hopes and dreams for the movie overall? Let us know in the comments.

Splatoon 3 review

System: Switch
Release Date: September 9, 2022
Developer: Nintendo
Publisher: Nintendo

It’s hard to believe that such a fresh property like Splatoon has already been around for seven years, but Nintendo’s IP that introduced the cute little humanoid squids known as Inklings quickly resonated with fans despite being on the commercial failure that was the Wii U. It was when Splatoon 2 took off, however, that the franchise truly found its following thanks to the Switch’s success. Interestingly, the quick turnaround rate of two years for Splatoon 2 to release made the game feel almost too familiar. But to the uninitiated, Splatoon 2 gave those same feelings that Splatoon 1 did to those that owned a Wii U. Meanwhile, Splatoon 3 had a chance to marinate for years – five years to be exact – and has seen vast improvements to the overall structure of the game and its heavily-focused online portion that doesn’t feel anywhere near as dated, bringing the game and its multiplayer inking glory to the modern day while looking as beautiful as ever.

Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope multiplayer

Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope won’t feature any sort of multiplayer modes. That’s according to Quentin Correggi, the associate producer on the game.

We recently had the opportunity to speak with Correggi, and one of the topics we discussed is whether the game will feature PvP like the original title. That led to the confirmation that Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope is scrapping multiplayer entirely, with the game planned “exclusively a solo experience.”

Theatrhythm Final Bar Line song list all tracks
