Big news everyone. Nintendo is recalling all label pins that were sold or given away from April 2004 through November 2007.

According to Nintendo of America the label pins contain unsafe levels of lead in the paint. Don't worry, they're promising to replace non-contaminated pins for free. So if you were given or bought any pins between the months above than you should check out this page on Nintendo's website.

On Thursday, April 24 unsuspecting folks in New York City will be receiving a free cab ride from none other than Mario himself! It all kicks off at 8-10AM then again from 12-2PM. (Okay so the "unsuspecting" commuters are probably now aware of this thanks to SMBHQ and all other Nintendo news pages)!

It appears a remake of Paper Mario (N64) is heading to the Nintendo DS. Unfortunately there's no listing for North America, only Japan. It'll be released there in July this year - no other information is currently available. We can only speculate a DS version will be released here sometime in the future.

As if we could forget the Brawl disc read errors in March...

People playing Mario Kart Wii in Japan have been experiencing disc reading errors. This is not a different problem from the Brawl issues. I predict there may be problems when the title is released in North America on the 27th, so a link to Nintendo's repair page might be handy.

This is a post from Wal-Mart's blog:
We have been hard at work on something really big and now we can share it with you. Readers of Checkout will no doubt recall the first ever midnight event at Sam's Club which we did last month around Super Smash Bros Brawl. Well, we have been working on something since that time that we can reveal today and the first place it is being announced is right here on this very blog!

Sunday April 27th is the US release of Mario Kart. We were so very thrilled with the response to the first midnight event we had that we are having our second midnight event around this launch! In all clubs where we can, we will open at midnight. (If there are blue laws that prohibit us from opening at midnight in a particular location, we will begin selling this item at the start of normal business hours on Sunday.) That means that folks will be in line on Saturday April 26th waiting for that stroke of midnight when they can enter the clubs to be the first in their town to have this title. We will have a GREAT price on this item. In addition, we are taking steps to ensure the clubs have a solid selection of Wii software and accessories.

Oh, and one more thing (why does that sound so very cool when Steve Jobs says this, but not as cool when I type it. Maybe it is the black turtle neck and Levis?)... We will have at LEAST 15 units of Wii hardware PER CLUB for the event. A great reason to have a Sam's Club Membership and a great opportunity to get a Wii for those folks that have not been able to find one. Pick up a Wii and the latest new game for it, Mario Kart!!

Start your engines, we are in for an exciting ride yet again at Sam's Club. This promises to be an exciting title from Nintendo and a huge seller. You do not need to deposit funds with a competitor of ours to ensure you get one. We will have a LOT on hand in the clubs, but if you want to be certain that you are getting one, we offer pre-sale via dot com. You can text "GAMES" to "SAMS1" or click on our PRESALE PAGE HERE. You can pre-order lots of great titles on many different platforms right from the comfort of your own home. Some cool items there, like the Wii Fit board, Grand Theft Auto, Wall-E, Iron Man and others.

Hope to see you in the clubs! Let's get RACING!!
There was also a rumor that the Nintendo World Store will be holding, although there has been nothing official released from Nintendo.

In case you're someone who believed my news post yesterday I have some REAL news for you and for everyone... it was a joke! Good one, eh? Probably not. Look out for Sean's archive of this year's joke a bit later.

VIZ Media has licensed the Mario manga, previously released ONLY in Japan in the 1990s up until 2005. Now the manga will begin to be serialized in Japan but will begin in the United States! Unfortunately there is not a lot of information out right now, but sources have learned old chapters will be published in Shonen Jump (US) first, then new chapters later.

We are waiting for Nintendo to comment on the latest news.

Overall, Japan will be ahead of us in chapters but what is important here is that the United States will finally see the Mario manga in English!
