Yes, it’s really true!  Back when the first game in this popular franchise was being developed, Activision wanted to team up with another game to make it, with their first choice being Nintendo! Unfortunately though, despite some help with marketing and interest in the concept, Nintendo turned down the offer to work with Activision on the series.  Talk about a missed opportunity!

So for those European Nintendo fans out there who want to hear the game’s music in some ‘official’ way, there you go.  You can find Nintendo’s Tweet on the matter in the full post after the break. My opinion though?  Don’t really see much point in getting this CD.  Not only do I not plan to buy a Wii U (and this game, among others) until Smash Bros comes out, but the entire soundtrack can be gotten far conveniently with this magical thing called the ‘internet’ and ‘Youtube’. But if you want to see what Nintendo has to say on the matter (officially) or to see it on the Club Nintendo store, keep reading!

This time, it’s to fix that semi notorious glitch some players were experiencing in the game’s third world.  Or in other words, the one that caused the path to the next level not to open up once a certain stage in world 3 was cleared for the first time. Either way, Nintendo’s released a new patch to fix this issue now.  So hooray, no more unwinnable save files due to Frantic Fields not opening up the next level when beaten.

They’re already making Hyrule Warriors (that Zelda spinoff with gameplay in the same style as Dynasty Warriors) for the company, but now they apparently want to make a Mario title too.  Yeah, as mentioned in an Official Nintendo Magazine interview, they mentioned wanting to make a Mario game: Disney, Star Wars and Mario are just a few of the various franchises we’d like to work with So yes, that’s something I guess.
