NINTENDO SELECTS (multiple choice quiz, I’ll throw a question to you and you answer a b c d)

Super Mario 64, Sunshine, Galaxy 1 and Galaxy 2 are consider to be TRUE 3d Mario’s to most people. Whether or not that is the case is an argument for another time. In most Mario games 100 coins would earn you an extra life, however three of these 4 games would give you a life for simply collecting 50 coins. Can you tell me witch one of these 4 games required 100 coins for a life?

A – 64

B – Sunshine

C – Galaxy 1

D – Galaxy 2

RO SHAM BO – False / True

Ro - In Super Mario world the “Dragon Coins” actually have a picture of a Koopa on them not Yoshi

Sham - In Luigi’s Mansion Gold Coins are worth the 5000g! The same amount as king boo’s Crown.

Bo - Super Mario 64 was the first game to introduce a coin with a star on them.

Dragon Quest 11 Trailer

Paper Mario: Color Splash producer talks about the lack of returning NPCs with game informer. The magazine started out by asking why old NPCs from the early Paper Mario games haven’t returned.

“Mario is not an IP that I created. From the position of someone borrowing the IP, I think it’s only natural to show respect to the person who created it, and let that feeling of respect guide us. When Miyamoto-san, the father of Mario, asks us, ‘Could you make a game with only characters from the Mario family?’ I think it’s only natural for us to give it our best shot. In other words, we are not currently thinking about returning to old NPCs.

Incidentally, I do think Color Splash may have proven that we can still make a game entertaining, even if our original characters don’t appear as NPCs. And with that belief, we will keep on continuing to do our best.”

Game informer pushed there luck a bit further and asked “if they woulkd consider bringing back companions.

“so if we get the chance to continue the series, I think we’ll want to create a Paper Mario with a different system.”
