Super Mario Odyssey just broke a big Nintendo record

Super Mario Odyssey just broke a big Nintendo record

Earlier this week, we heard that Super Mario Odyssey managed to sell 2 million copies worldwide in its first 3 days of availability. That's a big enough achievement on its own, but they don't stop there. Nintendo announced today that the marquee Switch title has broken more of the company's sales records - at least here in the US.

Nintendo Switch Korg app proves it’s more than just a game

Nintendo Switch Korg app proves it’s more than just a game

Assuming its great post-launch momentum keeps up, the Switch is bound to get a lot of excellent titles in the years to come. Given the flexibility of its Joy-Con controllers, we'll likely see plenty of developers experiment with unique control schemes in some of those games. One of the first companies to do so isn't a game developer at all, but rather music company Korg.

Super Mario Run was huge, but Nintendo isn’t happy

Super Mario Run was huge, but Nintendo isn’t happy

With all of the buzz surrounding the Switch and Super Mario Odyssey lately, it's been easy to forget about Nintendo's mobile efforts. We've got Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp to look forward to in the months to come, but how are Nintendo's existing mobile games doing? It would seem that Super Mario Run is doing really well, at least from a downloads perspective.

SNES Classic: With 2m sold, what does Nintendo do next?

SNES Classic: With 2m sold, what does Nintendo do next?

With Nintendo's latest round of financial results comes the opportunity to update all of us on how the SNES Classic Edition is doing. Considering the success of its predecessor, the NES Classic Edition, we were all assuming that the SNES Classic would do just as well (if not better). As it turns out, those who bet on the SNES Classic being a hit were right, which probably comes as a shock to precisely zero people.

Pokemon GO Trick or Treat is tonight – it’s super spooky

Niantic announced a Pokemon GO event starting earlier this month - but tonight is the best time to make the most of it. Tonight is the night where you get double candy - but also another big bunch of candy because it's also Halloween right now - it's Halloween RIGHT NOW! That means so much candy your face is about to melt directly off your head-bones.

Super Mario Odyssey is already a hit

Super Mario Odyssey is already a hit

Given the amount of hype surrounding Super Mario Odyssey before its launch, it was pretty much a foregone conclusion that it would be a successful game. Nintendo revealed today just how successful it's become, and the number of sales it racked up over the weekend alone are impressive to say the least. After hearing Nintendo talk sales numbers today, it seems safe to conclude that Super Mario Odyssey is going to be a major hit for the Switch.

Nintendo Switch may need just one year to beat Wii U

Nintendo Switch may need just one year to beat Wii U

That the Nintendo Switch is a popular device isn't really some kind of shocking revelation. Up until recently, the Switch frequently sold out across the US, and stock can still be low in some areas around the country. It would appear, however, that the Switch is even more popular than Nintendo expected it to be - and more popular than even its early momentum suggested.

Super Mario Odyssey First Impressions: The Jumpman Cometh

Super Mario Odyssey First Impressions: The Jumpman Cometh

It isn't often that a game comes like Super Mario Odyssey comes around. That's true from both a gameplay standpoint and a release one. Since Super Mario 64 launched way back in 1996, we've only had three other open-ended 3D Mario games: Super Mario Sunshine, Super Mario Galaxy, and Super Mario Galaxy 2. Nintendo, it would seem, likes to take its sweet time on these games, and that's an approach that has paid off time and again, as 64, Sunshine, and both Galaxy titles can be counted among the best games ever made.

Super Mario Odyssey review roundup: Switch’s best game?

Perhaps only second to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (and very possibly second to none), Super Mario Odyssey is the most anticipated Nintendo game of the year. We're now less than a day out from its release, and this morning, many publications began publishing their reviews. So, what's the critical consensus? Is Super Mario Odyssey a worthy entry in a series that includes greats like Super Mario 64 and Super Mario Sunshine?
