Get N or Get Out

Nike's upcoming N64-inspired sneakers, which we detailed awhile back, finally have a release date. Fans can look forward to locking down a pair on Sept. 25th, 2019, which is a rather fitting date. The N64 itself launched just a day later here in the states!

The Nike Air Max 97 x Nintendo 64 sneakers feature a grey mesh, matching upper overlays, splashes of green/blue/red/yellow throughout, three small dots on the tongues, which also display “POWER” on the right and “RESET” on the left, an ESRB Game Rating icon on the inside, and a Nintendo-shaped Air Max motif on the heels.

You'll be able to snag a pair of these sneakers for $170. Preorders go live at 10 AM on Sept. 25th, 2019, so make sure you don't miss out!

Playing The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time title theme in Beat Saber

Ocarina of Timing

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time title theme has been added to Beat Saber by modders, including a custom note highway for the song. While we don't have Beat Saber on Switch, we can at least enjoy some Nintendo-themed content for the game. Looks like a fun song to play!

Thanks to Babin for the heads up!

Untitled Goose Game devs comment on the game's lack of name, and a Super Mario 64 inspiration

Inspired by Super Mario 64

House House are launching Untitled Goose Game later this week, and plenty are eager to cause all sorts of trouble playing as sneaky goose. There's no doubt Untitled Goose Game is a unique experience, just like House House, the dev team behind it.

In an interview with QuaterCircles, House House covers a number of topics on the game. When asked about its lack of name, the devs say that they never found anything they liked better, which is why they stayed with the official unofficial name.

DOOM 64 "multiplatform" classification pops up in Australia

Are we DOOMed?

Not that long ago, we shared news of a Euro classification for DOOM 64. That listing stated PC and PS4, but many think it'll be coming to Switch as well, since the ratings for DOOM Classic and DOOM II stated the same. Now we have another listing for the game, this time for Australia. It's listed as multiplatform, but Australia tends to do this with almost all their ratings. Hopefully it's just more proof in general that the game is coming soon.

Modders aim to remake Super Mario 64 within Super Mario Odyssey

Yo, dawg...I put some Mario in your Mario

Super Mario Odyssey had a few nods to Super Mario 64, but fans aren't happy with just a couple tributes. They want to see a full-fledged remake, which is why a team of modders is trying to make that happen. The video above shows off their efforts so far, which gives us a look at Super Mario 64 remade within Super Mario Odyssey. It's looking pretty promising so far, but there's still a ton of work to be done.

First sub-50 minute any% speedrun in The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask hit thanks to new glitch

To play us out?

The any% speedrun community for The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask just got a major shot in the arm thanks to a recently-discovered glitch. This lets a player use the Ocarina over and over again in order to access a hidden debug menu, which can be used to gain necessary items long before you should have them. Now that the trick has been discovered, you can expect many other speedrunners to put it to good use and keep whittling down the overall time.

Smash Bros. tournament to provide therapy dogs to help players dealing with performance anxiety

Heavy petting

An upcoming Smash Bros. tournament is going to be adding in therapy dogs for players to utilize. These dogs will be on-hand for players to spend some time with both before and after their tournament action in order to ease any anxiety they have. All together, there will be 5 different dogs on-hand providing some escape for nervous players.

I'm down with Smash Bros. tournaments in general, but throw some dogs in there, and it turns into must-attend event to me!
