Details have surfaced about Yoshi's Story's storyline. The game takes place in Baby Bowser's coloring book, which has had all it fun and happiness sucked away by an evil force (Bowser? Kamek? Wario?!). The 6 Yoshi's (for the 6 worlds in the game) have to get the fruit from the "Super Fun Happy Tree" (Rough japanese translation) to restore happiness to the world.
The semi-Mario-character appearance Diddy Kong Racing is up for rental at Blockbuster now. I tried a rumored code 'bout getting Mario Kart people and Donkey Kong as racers, but it didn't work.
Electronic Gaming Monthly #101 has a kewl three page article about whether Toad is a guy or a girl. The article is inconclusive, and pretty darned funny
Lots of news this week. First, Ultra Game Players reports that Super Mario 64 made more money this year than major movies like face-off. WOW! Yoshi's Story's Japan release has been delayed a week, but probably won't affect the US release. DKL3 is officialy out now! The new NP catalog has TONS of new Mario stuff. This includes a Mario white board, two new t-shirts with Mario and Yoshi, a calendar featuring Mario 64, and Mario Kart 64, and three new Mario beanie dolls coming December 2nd (Luigi, Toad, and Wario). All 8 beanie babies (including Mario Bowser, DK, Yoshi, and Diddy) are at a special $36 price ($4 off) so get it now. To finish it off, there's a Mario Binder and Pen set. YAY!
Update on SM64 II. The programmers have gotten Mario to run around the screen. When they finish the engine, the programmers say they will "look into" simultaneous 2 player play!!!!!!! That would be AMAZING! Also Diddy Kong Racing is rumored to have Mario's original enemy Donkey Kong hidden in it!
Bring on the Mario Kart clones. NO real news, but Ultra game players latest issue previews Sonic R and diddy Kong racing, both of which are heavily compared to Mario Kart in that mag. Their Banjo-Kazooie preview compares it to Super Mario 64. These are slow days for Mario, until Yoshi's Story, that is.
