Nintendo held a particular Direct this week to disclose the total trailer for the upcoming Tremendous Mario Bros film. Within the new trailer, we lastly see Princess Peach, Luigi and Donkey Kong alongside the primary man. We even get to see DK beat the bejeezus out of Mario, correctly. Mario’s portrayal thus far appears to be that of the everyman who should partake in world-saving — truthful sufficient. And the attractive cowl of the Tremendous Mario Bros. theme put an precise, honest-to-goodness smile on my face.

However I don’t know — I’m nonetheless not bought. A part of it’s that I’m not eager on Peach thus far. She doesn’t appear very Peach to me. I want the trailer had proven extra of her than simply giving Mario a pep speak — and Pratt’s Mario is a subject for a distinct day. I worry the film goes to be only a assortment of Scenes that Reference Mario Recreation X. Within the trailer, we’ve already acquired The Smash Bros Scene and The Mario Kart Scene. If there seems to be a Paper Mario scene, let it’s identified that I known as it.

We’ve had a bit of excellent information and unhealthy information this week. In unhealthy information, we acquired the cancellation of the Smash World Tour. However in excellent news, we’re getting a brand new Amnesia sport from Frictional — at all times good to see them. Additionally, Activision Blizzard staff in Albany have efficiently fashioned one other union so it hasn’t been completely dismal.

In additional private information, I’m getting ready for The Recreation Awards, which go down subsequent Thursday, December 8. I’m prepared for all the brand new sport speak, all of the pointless Kojima cameos, the out-of-place movie trailers, the shockingly good musical performances and possibly the awards if we now have time. I’m additionally going to be enjoying The Callisto Protocol, as a result of the solar goes down early today and I need some chilly, darkish spooks. I haven’t been correctly scared by a sport since Alien: Isolation, and I dare Glen Schofield to make me break my streak.
