With the arrival of March's Nintendo Power magazine comes some interesting Mario goodies. Let me break it all down for you:

Calendar: Nintendo Power has available the Smash 2007 calendar in commemoration with the release of Super Smash Bros. Brawl. The front of the calendar features Snake, Mario, Samus, and Pit.

Game Coverages and Articles

"Chairman of the Board". This section was devoted to Mario Party 8 which arrives on March 5th. This game introduces the highest player amount ever topping 14! Toad and Birdo are now active characters. Also, 70 new mini-games. NP gives a few of the games called Punch-a-Bunch, Grabbin' Gold, Breakneck Building, Blazing Lassos, and Shake It Up. In addition with new mini-games comes a few new areas. Koopa Tycoon, King Boo's Haunted House as well as some small extras (I won't spoil you!) I'll rap this part up because I'll let you wait until the game is released so you can find out yourself.
