Postcards from Bubblaine – Super Mario Odyssey

Mario has been working his cap off in preparation for his newest adventure on the Nintendo Switch in Super Mario Odyssey, but even heroes deserve a break from time to time. Mario decided to go on a little holiday to celebrate his work so far, and what’s a better holiday destination than Bubblaine Beach of the Seaside Kingdom.

Feeling a bit envious? Love a good holiday pic? Then you’re in luck, Mario was kind enough to send NintyBuzz some postcards on his little holiday at the Seaside Kingdom. Check them out after the break!

Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle Season Pass Announced

As another day of Gamescom gets underway, Nintendo show no sign of slowing down, with demonstrations of Lola Pop from ARMS, a Mario Kart 8 Deluxe tournament and gameplay of Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle. In fact, they even had new information to share about the unique crossover title coming to the Nintendo Switch – in the form of a Season Pass.

Now, granted that a lot of the time, the idea of DLC really causes friction in the gaming community, but this one features enough content to warrant your attention.

Five Nintendo Crossovers We Need on Switch

Nintendo has been on something of a crossover campaign as of late. From pure Nintendo efforts like Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam to the more adventurous third party titles like Tokyo Mirage Sessions # FE, Hyrule Warriors, Mario & Sonic at the Olympics, Fire Emblem Warriors and now Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle, Nintendo is becoming more and more liberal with its IP. So in celebration of this month’s release of the aforementioned Mario and Rabbids crossover (which, incidentally, looks surprisingly brilliant) we got thinking – can we come up with any more ideas for potentially great Nintendo crossovers?

So here’s what we got – check out our five new crossover ideas we want to see on Switch after the break, and be sure to let us know your ideas down in the comments!

Throwback Review – Super Mario 3D Land

I’m back… again! Apologies for my absence, I was assigned to a job to do over the past week (someone’s been busy). Anywho, Our recent review of the charming Miitopia the other week marked NintyBuzz’s 50th review since we went live just over three years ago.

As a little celebration of sorts, I decided to search for my first ever game review I wrote (which was documented), and what I found was a review for Super Mario 3D Land which I wrote for a double page spread as part of my Media Studies assignment at college. I later submitted it as part of the YouView feature back in the 3DS Buzz days.

This review is completely unedited (aside from the odd typo correction and addition of screenshots) from when I was about 15 or 16. Please note that these were my views at the time (in 2012), but the game has still pretty much lived up to them up to this very day.

Check it out after the break!

Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle Revealed

A very unlikely crossover (unless you’ve been following certain rumours) was revealed earlier at Ubisoft’s E3 Conference, exclusively for Nintendo Switch. The new tactical adventure, Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle has been officially announced, and will be releasing in the West on the 29th August 2017 (that’s a day before my 22nd birthday y’all).

The game, which has been in the works for three years, follows a new adventure where Rabbids have somehow found a way to invade a new universe, specifically the Mushroom Kingdom. Unfortunately some of the Rabbids have gone bad (or rabid), so it is up to Mario to team up with other Rabbids to put an end to this chaos.

The game is primarily a turn based tactical RPG (similar to Fire Emblem), but will also include some exploration segments too. Each characters will have their own abilities, there are support abilities too, and you also have the ability to destroy cover if you are a bit of a daredevil! Finally, it was also announced by the man himself that Grant Kirkhope was involved with creating the music for the title.

Check out the announcement videos, screenshots, and art after the break!
