Super Mario Maker

In the past few weeks we have seen plenty of Super Mario Maker gameplay videos which have showcased what players can do with the game’s creation tools. Some players will surely take advantage of these tools to create some really challenging stages that very few will be able to complete.

A new Super Mario Maker commercial has been shared online today, showcasing a trick underwater stage created with the game. In a challenging stage death is always right behind the corner, as seen at the end of the video, so players will have to be really careful when playing through stages they have never completed before. You can take a look at the new commercial right below.

A new Super Mario Maker short trailer has been made available earlier this week. This trailer showcases one of the more recognizable gameplay elements of the Super Mario games, pipes. And just like in other Mario games, players will be able to access different sections of stages through them.

Another Super Mario Maker short trailer has been made available last week, showcasing the different game styles included in the game. The Super Mario Bros., Super Mario Bros. 3, Super Mario World and New Super Mario Bros. U styles will sport not only different graphics but also different mechanics and power-ups. The ability to select different game styles expands the Super Mario Maker possibilities considerably.

Like all recent Nintendo games, Super Mario Maker will come with amiibo functionality, allowing players to unlock special costumes with the corresponding figures. A trailer showcasing the game’s amiibo features has been recently made available online

Super Mario Maker will be released in around two weeks in all regions exclusively on Wii U. More gameplay videos are surely going to be shared in the next few days so stay tuned for all the latest news on Nintendo’s big upcoming title.

The free-to-play shooter The First Descendant has gotten a lot of attention in its first week. The game’s publisher, Nexon, says that 10 million people have already tried it out.

Insider Gaming pointed out that since there is no cost up front, it’s still too early to tell how many of those players will stick around, but it’s still a big number for a new IP. On Steam alone, it peaked at 264,860 concurrents right after launch and has still managed to break 200,000 in the last 24 hours, so it looks like a lot of people are still really into the game.

It was a “mindless and repetitive grind,” and we gave The First Descendant a 3/10 in our review. Of course, that’s just one opinion; other experts have had different ones. Most people, though, say that the game’s annoying free-to-play model is the worst thing about it.

Are you one of the millions of people who played The First Descendant last week? Are you going to come back for more? Leave a comment below and let us know.

Raiden has a long and interesting history as a vertical shooter in arcades. However, the series is going to get a Super Stardust HD makeover, which means it will switch to a twin-stick format. It comes out in Japan on October 31. There’s no word yet on when it will come out in the West, but we wouldn’t be surprised if it did.

A Gematsu translation of the game’s website says that the full version will have an arcade mode with up to six stages. There will also be an “Unlimited” option for people who want to be at the top of the rankings. It sounds like a pretty straightforward package in terms of what’s inside, but we think the action will be what makes it worth it.

There’s a trailer up top that should help you figure out what to expect. There are, however, different versions of Raiden 3, Raiden 4, and Raiden 5 that you can play right now on the PS5 and PS4, if you can’t wait for this game to come out in the West.

Nike, the maker of high-quality shoes, is working with Bandai Namco, the company that makes the Tekken series, to make a pair of sneakers. The fun competition is part of the franchise’s 30th anniversary celebrations. You can get your own pair for $250 or the equivalent in your country, though they’ll probably be worth a lot more on the sneakerhead black market.

Two pairs of Tekken 8 x Nike Air Foamposite One Fist sneakers are set to come out in September 2024, according to shoe fan Sole Retriever (thanks, VGC). The designs are based on Kazuya and Jin, two main characters in the series. You can get them at Nike and some other stores. People who like hypebeasts and fighting games are likely to buy these quickly, so if you like Tekken and shoes that make people talk, you should probably act fast.

Should Bandai Namco and Nike work together? What do you think? Are you going to fight for your own pair? Make sure to take good care of your shoes and keep their value in the comments section below.
