My Nintendo's Super Mario pin set officially sold out

Hope you got yours!

Yesterday we put up a notice about the My Nintendo Super Mario pin set being available to those who participated in the required My Nintendo missions. Looks like plenty of you did that, as the pin set is now sold out. If you try to cash in and get your reward, the site now spits out a message saying the pin set is no longer available. We have no idea if another round of pins will be offered, but with everything else tied to the Super Mario 35th anniversary being a limited offer, we'd say the outlook isn't so good.

Thanks to Elfman13 for the heads up!

Now Super Mario 64 is running on the Vita and Dreamcast

He's not quite right, but he's Mario all the same

Last week, the reverse-engineered version of Super Mario 64 was showcased running on the PS2. It was wonky as hell in terms of the textures, but it worked. Now just one week later, the game is popping up on even more platforms.

People have taken that same reverse-engineered version of Super Mario 64 and gotten it running on both the Vita and the Dreamcast. Again, it's not 100% perfect as compared to the original, but it's still pretty impressive. Nintendo is yet to comment on these unofficial ports, but you can bet they're going to go after these versions in the very near future.

Don't miss your chance!

Here's a reminder for those who missed it the first time around. The Mario pin set available through My Nintendo is now available to redeem. You'll need to have participated in multiple My Nintendo missions in order to redeem the pin set, but as long as you've done that, you should be good to go. The only other thing necessary to get these pins is to be an owner of Super Mario 3D All-Stars. Grab your pin set here.

Super Mario 3D All-Stars retains a Super Mario 64 typo from the original release, but changes up another piece of dialog

Yoshi's mistake lives on

Here's a bit of an odd one for you. In the Super Mario 3D All-Stars version of Super Mario 64, Nintendo has left a typo in the game that was there in the original release. While that's a bit odd on its own, the situation makes less sense when you realize Nintendo went into another piece of dialog to change part of it. Why tweak one part and not fix a typo in another?!
