It was first known yesterday of Banpresto's new Super Mario Brothers plush toys however, they are only available in Japan at this point in time. The line apparently features Mario, Toad, Luigi, Boo, and the Power-Up Mushroom.

On a positive side this does not mean U.S. fans cannot make a purchase online. Play-Asia has just stalked these today and would cost U.S citizens $10.90. Visit the link provided if you're interested!

As we reported on March seventh about the possibility of the 'Mushroom Kingdom Hearts' game in 2008, new news comes about. This was, accordingly, just a April Fools joke and a rumor. Kotaku mentions that the game WOULD have featured 41 Nintendo characters which results to 4/1 aka April 1st.

Also as evidence, Mario is shown without the "M" on his hat in the so called promotional game poster. Sorry folks but this news had to be broke.

An article in EGM (April issue) is describing or just telling plainly that Nintendo and Disney are in the works to produce a new game for the Wii, Mushroom Kingdom Heats. Square Enix is the publisher and that is all that we know about the game other than we'll see characters from the original Kingdom Hearts titles and Mario should be playing a major role...

We'll keep you posted with more information when it becomes available.

Not all too important news but I'd like to share with you that a public school was handing out Wario: Master of Disguise bookmarks beginning on Friday, March second. Does Nintendo have anything planned? Probably not but odds are it was just a way to remind us of the title's release on Monday (today).

We thought we'd like to share with you news of a cell phone game has been established and has surfaced entitled "Marbario". None-the-less the game follows the storyline of Super Mario Brothers but with different characters. Let's lay that out:

The overall objective of the game is to save you're girlfriend from Pavo, aka Bowser. Here's a description: Mobario is a classical jump 'n' run game. The story is quite simple:
Mobaria, the girlfriend of Mobario was kidnapped by the evil Pavo. You have to rescue Mobaria from Pavo's Castle, but you have to get there which is not easy. The land, the sky, the caves and even under the water are nasty enemies waiting for you. In Pavo's Castle, fireballs make your journey more difficult. And at the end you have to fight Pavo, who is really strong, you have to beat him 10 times, but take care with jumping on him.

Now you have to make you're way through 9 levels and defeat all the enemies. The boss of each level is Pavo.
