F-Zero celebrates its 30th anniversary today

Oh Captain, my Captain!

Whether Nintendo wants to remember it or not, today marks the 30th anniversary of F-Zero bursting onto the scene in North America. It's been a long time since we've seen a new F-Zero game, but that's not due to a lack of fans clamoring for one. Interest and hype for a new F-Zero game is stronger than its ever been, and there's no better time than the series' 30th anniversary to let our voices be heard. Nintendo, it's time to bring this series back!

Game History Secrets: Green Lantern's Cancelled SNES Game

Another game that never was

Today on Game History Secrets we talk about the Green Lantern's Cancelled Super Nintendo (SNES) Game by Ocean Software. The game had a troubled development, featuring a lack of direction, shake-ups from DC Comics, and ultimately a lack of confidence in an aging platform.

Boundary Break hunts down out-of-bounds secrets in Super Mario World

What are you hiding, Mario?

Mother 2 staff "Sukajan" jacket to be sold in Japan

The motherload!

Back when the dev team on Mother 2 completed the game, they were given special Sukajan jackets like the one above. Now fans will have a chance to snag replica jackets for themselves.

These jackets are part of Shigesato Itoi’s Hobonichi Project, and are due out in Japan Feb. 2020. Japanese fashion designer Kunihiko Morinaga’s label, Anrealage, will be involved in the creation, while Tailor Toyo will handle the production side. Each jacket is priced at a rather steep 88,000 yen.

Modding the Super Scope to work with modern TVs

All worth it for Revolution X

Just like the NES Zapper, the SNES Super Scope won't work with modern TVs due to incompatible tech. Does that mean the Super Scope is lost to the ages? Not if you're willing to go through a ridiculous amount of work!

The video above shows a modder who's determined to make the Super Scope work on today's TVs. As you might suspect, there's a ton of work required to get the device up-and-running, and it's probably not worth all the trouble. Instead of going through the hassle yourself, just watch the video above and see how it all plays out!

Thanks to Ian for the heads up!

Nintendo focuses on games featuring Boo as we head towards Halloween

Here's (not) looking at you, Boo!

I think it's safe to say there aren't any scary Mario games out there, but there are plenty of Mario games with ghosts! It all started with Boo, and Nintendo has put together a special feature chronicling some of the Boo-related games you can play on Switch right now. Check out their round-up below!

Wait, don’t be scared—we’re just talking about the character Boo! This spectacular specter has been (dis)appearing through Mario’s adventures since the Super Mario Bros.™ 3 game. While their look (and sizes) may have changed throughout the years, Boo’s roller-ghoster career has been conjured onto the Nintendo Switch™ system.

In honor of the ghostest with the mostest, we’ve gathered a few of the games where you can peek-a-Boo or two (or, at least find their fa-boo-lous kin—like King Boo!).
