The Art of Super Mario Odyssey Art Book - fourth preview page shared

In today's preview for the upcoming Art of Super Mario Odyssey Art Book, we get a look at the titular Odyssey! It's crazy to think Nintendo put in so much design work on this amazing ship, and we may never see it in another game again! Let's hope Mario uses the Odyssey in the future to chase down Bowser and his airships!

Japanese retailers already have Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe boxes on display

It might not be a NEW entry in the New Super Mario Bros. series, but it's still a 2D Mario game that millions upon millions missed out on. That means there's potential to hit a very big audience with the game, and Japanese retailers know it. The picture above comes from Yodobashi Camera in Akihabara, which already has their display boxes out, ready to reel in new customers.

Mario Tennis Aces - Version 2.0.0 will allow voice chat with strangers through the Switch Online app

We've already posted the full patch notes for Version 2.0.0 of Mario Tennis Aces, due out Sept. 19th, 2018. There's one element of the patch that's worth mentioning on its own, though.

The game is now compatible with the Nintendo Switch Online smartphone application. If the application is running on your device when you enter an online match, you will automatically receive a prompt on your smartphone asking if you would like to join a voice chat with your opponent. This will be applied to all online modes (Online Tournament in Tournament, the new Co-op Challenge, and Online Play in Free Play.

While I know people aren't thrilled about using the app, I'm honestly surprised Nintendo is letting players chat with strangers! I'm sure complaints will role in shortly thereafter, and Nintendo will shy away from doing this again.

Is it Possible to Beat New Super Mario Bros. U Without Touching a Single Coin?

Can New Super Mario Bros. U be beaten without ever touching a single coin? New Super Mario Bros U is one of my favorite Super Mario games, I replay it every couple of months. But I usually not only try to beat NSMBU, but I also challenge myself to play through the game in a certain way, so that it stays fun, and challenging. So for my latest playthrough I thought it would be fun to try to collect the least amount of coins possible, while still beating New Super Mario Bros. U.
