Nintendo starts sharing special countdown art for Paper Mario: The Origami King's launch

5 days to go!

It's been a whirlwind ride with Paper Mario: The Origami King. The game was announced out of nowhere, and then revealed as launching just a couple months later. Now we're officially in launch week!

Nintendo is celebrating the upcoming launch by sharing countdown art on their Twitter account. This piece of art was shared by Nintendo Australia in particular, and it looks like they'll be doing one every day until launch. We'll make sure to bring them all to you!

$114,000 Bid for Super Mario Bros. Sets World Record

Mama mia!

A new world record has been set for a video game auction, and the honor goes to Super Mario Bros.. You can check out the full details on this completed auction below.

A 1985 video game cartridge of Super Mario Bros. has sold for $114,000, Friday, July 10, setting the world record as the most expensive video game ever sold at public auction.

Sealed for 35 years, the game was sold during a public auction of vintage comics and original comic art held by Heritage Auctions in Dallas, Texas. It took 29 bids to push the final sale price into pop culture history.

The buyer wishes to remain anonymous at this time. The previous record for the most valuable video game cartridge ever sold at auction was a 1987 sealed copy of Mega Man, which was sold for $75,000, also by Heritage Auctions in November 2019.

Unfortunately, Paper Mario: The Origami King has leaked online

This goes without saying, but I'll say it anyway. We won't be sharing any news, info, or content from leaked copies of the game.

Make your own 3D Mario game!

For a few years now, Mario fans have been making their own stages on the Wii U and Switch thanks to Super Mario Maker 1 and 2. Will they ever get around to making a toolset to build your own 3D Mario stages? We'll have to wait and see on that one, but in the meantime, fans have stepped in to make that idea a reality.

Super Mario 64 Maker is a fan-made mod that gives you various tools to create your own Super Mario 64 stages. Place platforms, enemies, items, and more to create your own custom stages. This kind of project really needs fan support to take off, and there's definitely a chance Nintendo is going to swoop in and kill it. Let's enjoy Super Mario 64 Maker while it lasts!
