Mario’s Super Picross "How to Play" trailer

Grab your chisel!

Use numbers as clues and chisel away squares to bring a hidden image to the surface, with Mario cheering you on as you progress through the game’s puzzles. You can get a friend in on the excavation too. Two chisels are better than one! This puzzle game launched on the Super Famicom™ system in 1995 and has never been released in the U.S. until now.

Mario's Super Picross is part of the next Switch Online SNES Collection update, which is set to launch on Sept. 23rd, 2020.

More retro fun coming!

Diddy Kong gasped in horror when he discovered Donkey Kong’s favorite beach chair smashed to pieces, surrounded by hundreds of strange footprints in the sand. A ransom note left by Kaptain K. Rool claimed responsibility for the cowardly kidnapping of Donkey Kong. What cruel fate could possibly await?

Luckily, on Sept. 23, you’ll have the chance to come to the rescue when the classic Super NES™ game Donkey Kong Country™ 2: Diddy’s Kong Quest arrives for the Nintendo Switch™ system. With a Nintendo Switch Online membership, you can join the nimble Diddy Kong and the powerful ponytail-wielding Dixie Kong as they embark on a sweeping adventure filled with animal friends, collectibles and more hidden areas than Cranky Kong could ever dream of discovering back in his day.

In addition, the puzzle game Mario’s Super Picross and the cult beat-’em-up The Peace Keepers are also joining the Super Nintendo Entertainment System™ – Nintendo Switch Online library for the Nintendo Switch system. The Nintendo Entertainment System™ – Nintendo Switch Online collection expands its roster with the addition of an NES™ game too: the sci-fi shoot-’em-up S.C.A.T.: Special Cybernetic Attack Team.

A Nintendo Switch Online membership grants instant access to a total of 90 classic games to explore and enjoy in the service’s expanding libraries. Here are additional details on the games arriving this month:

Fan takes 6 years to port Super Mario World to the MSX

A really impressive port

The MSX was an 8-bit platform, but you might not know it from the video above. It was created by Mario/MSX fan Daemos, and it took him 6 years of hard work to make it happen. The only pieces this port are missing from the real version of Super Mario World are the end credits and one boss fight.

It doesn't seem this has been released to the public, and it might never be. Nintendo has a habit of swooping in to squash these projects. Daemos wanted to share a look at it as a way to celebrate Super Mario Bros. 35th anniversary, and it would be a shame to see all his efforts get scrubbed from the internet in just a few days.

Thanks to Sephazon for the heads up!

Have I lost my touch?

It's Super Mario Bros. 35th anniversary, which means it's time to dust off the original game and see if I'm still capable of beating the game. Have I lost my touch since my single-digit days, or can I still eek out a victory?
