So I found out today that there is a FOURTY FIVE VOLUME SUPER MARIO MANGA called Super Mario-Kun!!!??? I’ve seen various pages of said manga before, but I always just thought it was from some old manga from years ago (which it is, but this manga is STILL going strong and has chapters based on Super Mario Galaxy and New Super Mario Bros).
And if you ask me the design of Mario in these comics is WAY better than the mascoty, character devoid, totally non-threatening (stagnant) Mario that you see in the modern Mario games.
And of course it’s never been officially translated into English…
we don’t really need or deserve a new Zelda at this point do we? We got Skyward Sword last year, as well as OoT 3DS. So maybe Nintendo wants to step back from the workbench and give it some time before they plan the next game. Considering the Wii U is probably set for a Holiday 2012 launch, a new Zelda this early would be rushed. It would really mar a valuable franchise to have a rushed game just thrown in haphazardly. I actually think The Big N is making a good move here. As a gamer and Nintendo fan it’s hard to keep my appetite for new content from clouding the fact that good games take time and sometimes a great game is worth any wait.
