Nintendo's Kensuke Tanabe says Gooigi 'might taste like coffee,' ponders a Gooigi-only spin-off

A shot of Gooigi in the morning

During E3 2019, the internet went slightly mad for Gooigi. While the character existed before this year's E3, he really got the spotlight due to his major appearance in Luigi's Mansion 3. Plenty of people who caught their first glimpse of Gooigi were instantly intrigued, and they needed to know more. For some reason, everyone was dying to know if Gooigi is edible.

In a Game Informer interview, Nintendo's Kensuke Tanabe revealed that Gooigi is most likely edible, as the character is sort of like Jell-o or gummy candies. Now Verge has taken things a step further to ask what Gooigi tastes like, and Tanabe was more than happy to answer by saying that Gooigi "might taste like coffee."

That might seem odd at first, but it actually makes perfect sense. Tanabe had previous explained that "Professor E. Gadd extracted a bunch of energy out of the ghost that he captured, and then he accidentally spilled coffee on it, and that's how the goo was made." Certainly seems like a coffee flavor is the way to go!
With so many Gooigi fans coming out of E3, what does the future hold for the character? Tanabe has said that if Luigi's Mansion 3 is a sales success, it could lead to bigger and better things for the gooey one.

“There might be a Gooigi-only spinoff perhaps, with all different colors. Gooigi Power Rangers.”

Amazon Mexico thinks Luigi's Mansion 3 will launch on Oct. 4th, 2019

It would be the perfect month!

I think we can all agree that it would make sense to release Luigi's Mansion 3 sometime in October, right? You want to get in on that Halloween hype to get the game even more attention. While Nintendo is yet to confirm a release date outside of a generic 2019 listing, Amazon Mexico has updated their info page with an Oct. 4th, 2019 release. Not official by any means, but hopefully it ends up being the real deal.

Artist creatues Mario and Luigi sculptures out of recycled cans

Metal Mario

Artist Makaon knows how to put recycled cans to good use. He's made many a creation using cans, ranging from Gundam to Star Wars. He also has made a few Nintendo-related creations along the way, which now includes his tribute to Mario and Luigi above. I would imagine that much of this work lead to quite a few scrapes and cuts along the way, but the final result certainly seems worth it!

Region Locked - Mario & Luigi Series' Predecessor: Tomato Adventure

This time on Region Locked, we take a look at Mario & Luigi Superstar Saga's Predecessor: Tomato Adventure. Tomato Adventure was developed by AlphaDream and published by Nintendo exclusively in Japan for the Game Boy Advance (GBA). Many elements from the game were lifted and placed into Mario & Luigi Superstar Saga years later. Tomoato Adventure originally started out as a game called Gimmick Land for the Game Boy Color.

Luigi wins Super Mario Maker 2 by doing absolutely nothing

Show'em how it's done, Luigi!

The joke of Luigi winning by doing absolute nothing continues with a set of Super Mario Maker 2 courses. All Luigi has to do is stand still to make his way from start to finish in these courses, and he seems perfectly happy to do so. It's not about working hard, but working smart!
