Super Mario 64 Land mod now available but there’s a catch

Super Mario 64 Land mod now available but there’s a catch

The Switch may now be hailed as Nintendo's most innovative console of recent years but, back in the days, that title was briefly held by the Nintendo 64. Often promoted as the first 64-bit gaming system, part of the console's legacy were the games available for it, like The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time and, of course, Super Mario 64. The latter is now seeing a slight revival, not through some Nintendo paid service, but through a free expansion mod titled, what else, Super Mario 64 Land.

Mario Kart Tour multiplayer beta arrives in December, but only if you pay up

Back in September, Mario Kart Tour launched for iOS and Android without a component many consider critical to the Mario Kart experience: multiplayer.

Mario Kart Tour is now playable but it has a critical requirement

Nintendo was initially doubtful of the mobile gaming market but, after seeing its profitability, finally tried to carve its own place in that crowded market. In typical Nintendo fashion, it did things on its own terms and at its own pace. Sadly, that hasn't always worked in the gaming giant's favor, even with its popular properties. It's trying again with the new Mario Kart Tour for Android and iOS but, immediately, the game is meeting some criticism.

The gaming giant might have also learned to temper its mobile enthusiasm after less than encouraging revenues from its smartphone titles. That's maybe why, after almost half a year since it was first revealed, Mario Kart Tour's launch has finally been given a date once and for all.

Super Mario Maker 2 review: Beautiful insanity

Super Mario Maker 2 review: Beautiful insanity

If there was any reason at all to own a Wii U, Super Mario Maker was it. Super Mario Maker was so unique and so popular that I think if it would have been a launch title, the Wii U may have succeeded despite all that was working against it. Super Mario Maker 2 on Switch, then, was inevitable, and if you’re looking for more of a good thing, you’ll definitely find it here. Unfortunately, it isn’t all sunshine and daisies in the world of Super Mario Maker 2, as the consistent problems with Nintendo Switch Online hold this game back from achieving true greatness.
