Famitsu print ads - Dragalia Lost, New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe

Two more Nintendo-related print ads popped up in the latest issue of Famitsu. We get another advert for the mobile game Dragalia Lost, and a non holiday-themed spot for New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe. Seems like these promotional efforts really work well in Japan, as both titles are doing quite well!

New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe - Amazon Japan bonus item

If you purchase New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe from Amazon Japan, you get a special bonus item with your purchase. For no extra cost, you get to take home a New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe tote bag with your order! I wish this bonus goody was offered worldwide. I'd love to have one of these!

More details on New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe's first week of Japanese sales

Major glitch discovered in Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story + Bowser Jr's Journey

Looks like the remake of Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story has added in a new feature, and it's not a welcome one. A particularly nasty bug can end up ruining your entire game, meaning you lose all your save progress up to that point. The issue can occur when Mario is removed from your party in Nimble Woods. If you go back a screen and save the game, the game glitches and Luigi cannot move on.

Thanks to cm30 for the heads up!

New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe - Korean commercial

Twitch streamer aiming to beat Super Mario 64 with a single button, all in the name of charity

Twitch streamer Rudeism is always cooking up new ways to play games and challenge himself. His most recent idea might be the most diabolical yet. He plans on beating Super Mario 64 with a single button.

Rudeism has created a special controller that lets him do multiple things with just one button. Depending on how he presses the button, Mario will do different things. Why torture yourself like this? Rudeism plans to live-stream his efforts all in the name of raising money for the AbleGamers Charity. If this sounds like something you'd like to support, you can tune in to the attempt on Saturday, Jan. 26th, 2019 at 4PM PST.
