As a plumber, Mario usually wears work shoes, but if you’re in the market for some athletic footwear, Vans and Nintendo have announced that their “Vans X Nintendo” collaboration is now available in stores and online.
More than just fancy sneakers, the “Vans X Nintendo” collection will also include Nintendo-themed t-shirts, backpacks, bags, socks, and hats.
The shoes and clothing from the “Vans X Nintendo” collection will feature 8-bit artwork from a quartet of classic titles (Super Mario Bros., Duck Hunt, Donkey Kong, and The Legend of Zelda), as well as apparel adorned with the iconic NES design.
Head over to Vans.com/Nintendo now to browse the entire collection.
Exactly 26 years ago, I unwrapped an NES “Action Set” complete with the original Super Mario Bros. and Duck Hunt. This Christmas, Nintendo wants to recreate one of my earliest childhood memories by adding Super Mario Bros. Deluxe, a Game Boy Color port of the original Super Mario adventure, to the 3DS eShop and Duck Hunt to the Wii U eShop. Someone tell the Duck Hunt Dog that I will have the last laugh this year…
Two other Nintendo classics are now available to download today, both on the Wii U eShop. Mario Party Advance was the first Mario Party to be released for a Nintendo handheld. And Super Mario World: Super Mario Advance 2 brought Super Mario World, possibly the greatest Super Mario game ever, to the Game Boy Advance when it was originally released.
Also available this week is the Wii U debut of WayForward’s strong>Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse. Already available for the 3DS, Wii U owners can now take control of the feisty genie in her latest side-scrolling adventure.
More information on all of these games (and a few others) can be found after the break. (more…)
The G4 Films Epictober Film Festival may be the greatest thing ever. Or at least, the greatest thing ever this week. Taking three classic games and giving them the horror movie treatment, the short film series opens with “The Hunt,” a bloody riff on Nintendo’s Duck Hunt.
Who among us didn’t fire off a few bursts of invisible Zapper fire at the Duck Hunt dog after he snickered at our poor aim? It’s for that director Sam Balcomb created “The Hunt.” Who’s laughing now dog?
G4 will follow “The Hunt” with two more films including tomorrow’s “Kart Driver” and Wednesday’s “The Birds of Anger.”
What happens when Arthur Rankin, Jr.-esque stop-motion films join The White Stripes video for “Fell In Love With A Girl” and the most wonderful time of the year? It results in Andrew Jive’s “8-Bit Holiday” on YouTube, where Mario, Mega Man, Galaga and Ms. Pac-Man sneak out to spread some holiday cheer. The best part? They’re all made out of Legos.
With only 19,770 views as of this writing, it’s surprising that “8-Bit Holiday” hasn’t gone completely viral (maybe it was the post-Christmas posting date), though stop-motion software company Dragon posted the video on their Facebook page. Since his Tumblr is sprinkled with Pac-Man-related posts on every page, perhaps we’ll see more 8-bit tributes from Jive in the future.
