DAILY GRAFFITI: ‘SUPER MARIO BROS. 3’ EDITION
Cool SMB3 street art mural spotted by always_exploring.
I feel like I’m the only one who thought the cape from Super Mario World was way cooler than the Tanooki suit. I mean, sure, the Tanooki is clearly more stylish, but the cape was just functionally more awesome. That thing could keep you up in the air for freaking EVER! Basically, I’d much rather have Nintendo make every Mario game more like Super Mario World than the weird hybrid of SMB and SMB3 they’ve been doing for the past few years.

8-BIT AVENGERS

Here’s a cool little t-shirt design by artist Robert Retiano featuring classic characters that have survived the 8-bit era of gaming as Marvel’s Avengers. There’s Donkey Kong as the Incredible Hulk, Link as Captain America, Mega Man as Iron Man, and Mario as Thor.

What oldschool video game characters would be Black Widow and Hawkeye?

Corrupted Super Mario 64 Is Super Trippy
Here’s some footage from a really tripped out/corrupted Super Mario 64 cartridge. It’s fun to watch and overall insane, and I’d love to actually play a version that runs this damaged. Peep the video below:

80’s Throwback Crew Neck from King of Games

The King of Games have released their latest sweatshirt based on classic Nintendo games. Surprisingly, this one’s a crew neck. I usually don’t like crew necks but since the graphic is so 80’s it totally works. It’s just over $100 and comes in three colorways.

Hit the link for the gallery of all the colors this fine garment is available in.

The Other Mario Movie
Not to toot my own magic flute, but I know a lot about videogames. But I had no idea a Mario Bros. anime existed.
Super Mario Bros.: Peach-Hime Kyushutsu Dai Sakusen! was released in 1986 and never made it out of its Japanese homeland. Directed by ex-Sanrio employee, Masami Hata, this was the very first film based on a videogame. It was first released in theaters (which is strange considering its 60 minute runtime) and then on VHS, never to receive a DVD version.
Need this in your collection? Unfortunately, all the coins in the Mushroom Kingdom couldn’t get you copy. Apparently the tape is even hard to find in Japan, let alone the West. Its Wikipedia page even claims it to be one of the rarest films of all time.
Someone must have gotten a hold of one though, since you can view its fansub on YouTube.

Amazing Bootleg Mario Sofubi
I’ve never really understood it when people specifically collect bootlegs, but to each their own. This Mario sofubi toy certainly warrants a purchase based solely on its ridiculousness. It’s as if Mario were Russian instead of Italian. If you absolutely need this, you can find the eBay listing here.

Here’s a pretty incredible fan-made opening for Attack on Titan, starring the cast of Super Mario Bros. 3. Tanooki suits and all, this is a pretty wicked rendition of the intro.

Super Mario Bros. Movie Gets a Web Comic Sequel Penned by One of the Original Writers
Although it barely resembled the story from the classic Nintendo games, and even though it started the long trend of video game movies sucking, the Super Mario Bros. movie has found a comic book sequel written by one of the 10 original writers from the 1993 box office flop.


Via Empire:

It all started after a 2010 interview with the original film’s screenwriter, Parker Bennett, who gave them insight into what he might have concocted to continue the plot after the seemingly sequel-baiting cliff-hanger ending.
“Parker has admitted that the sequel hook was an homage to the ending of the original Back To The Future, and, in the same way, was not a serious indication of a potential sequel,” Applebaum tellsEmpire. “If the film was successful enough to merit one, they would have gone from there.” The rest, of course, is cinema history, but Applebaum and Hoss were inspired to dig deeper.
“We did heavily discuss the world of the film, from its backstory to the character’s motivations. Parker also provided a general direction for what he would have wanted to happen to these characters and what consequences from the first film would become major themes of the sequel. At that point he sort of ‘passed the torch’ to us, although he does occasionally provide additional direction.”
The idea has now spawned the online comic, which also features contributions from Eryk Donovan and Jaymes Reed. “Super Mario Bros.provided a look into a world too rich and too original to not explore again. We knew that the original had its fans and felt that if we brought the Mario Bros. back to Dinohattan there would be an audience for that story,” explains Applebaum. “As this year is the film’s 20th anniversary there was no better time.”
