I am a huge Nintendo fan, hence why NintyBuzz exists. I especially love all things Zelda and Metroid. NintyBuzz was started by me back in the Summer of 2014, it started out mainly as a hobby, though the site has gradually grown, and I hope it grows for many years to come!

New Paper Mario: The Origami King Details Emerge

With nearly a month until Paper Mario: The Origami King launches for Nintendo Switch, more details about the upcoming title have been announced. King Olly has commandeered Peach’s Castle in an attempt to fold up the world. Binding the castle, massive streamers are sprawled across the land and it’s up to Mario to unravel them at their source.

The new trailer has introduced some new unlikely companions, including Bobby, a Bob-Omb suffering from amnesia, and Olivia, King Olly’s kind-hearted sister. The trailer also went in-depth on how the new ring-based battles will work. Mario can rotate rings and slide columns to try and bunch up enemies before the timer runs out. You’ll then have to decide which of your weapons to use to make the biggest impact.

Taking on the big bad bosses of the world, aptly named ‘The Legion of Stationery’, takes a slightly different approach. This time you’ll have to move the rings and columns to build a path for Mario to reach the boss in the centre. Having trouble? Depending on how many Toads you have rescued during your adventure may affect how much support they’ll provide in-battle. Always worth helping a little guy in need!

Check out the new trailer below, as well as a press release and gallery after the break!

1,000 Levels and Counting: StephenPlays Reaches Morning Mario Milestone

Sometimes I wonder: have we spent more hours playing the Super Mario Maker franchise or watching others do it for us?

In the case of much of YouTuber Stephen Georg’s fanbase, the answer is probably the latter. For almost five years, thousands of viewers have been able to watch an episode of Morning Mario, Stephen’s flagship 6 a.m. EST series, showcase an awesome Super Mario Maker level every weekday morning. It’s a formula that’s stood the test of time for half of a decade, and in an exclusive interview, he told us the series’ momentum is showing no signs of stopping!

I’ve been playing Nintendo games since I was 3 years old, and my earliest memory is watching my dad play Super Mario 64.
Since then, I’ve become as big of a fan as you might imagine: YouTube video projects, fan fiction, owning just about every amiibo — you name it!
I’m also a stalwart defender of underappreciated games like Skyward Sword, Other M, Super Paper Mario, Star Fox Adventures, Star Fox Zero and more. I love to see passion in a gaming product, and my desire on this site is to share a similar passion in what I write.

Paper Mario: The Origami King Unfolds on Switch this Summer

Like a surprise paper plane through the window, Nintendo has thrown us an announcement out from nowhere… Paper Mario: The Origami King. That’s right, a brand new Paper Mario title is coming to the Nintendo Switch, and it’s coming soon; 17th July to be exact!

King Olly, ruler of the Origami Kingdom, crashes the origami festival in the Mushroom Kingdom in an attempt to fold the entire world. With a range of new tools at his disposal, it’s up to Mario to save the day. With the brand new 100-arm fold ability, our moustached plumber can extend his limbs to pull, peel, and stretching the environment to solve various puzzles. The Origami King also adds a new way to fight with the ring-based battle system, introducing a new depth of puzzle solving within combat.
