Super Mario Bros. Wonder Direct (Thursday 31st August 2023 @15:00 BST)

Recommended Posts

Well, we've got a Direct! 

Hopefully this is focusing on Wonder so that the next Direct (if we get one before it releases) doesn't spend too much time on it, rather than this being a sign that there's no other Direct on the way :p I doubt it would impact it either way, especially with TGS just around the corner. 

15 minutes seems quite long to me to spend focusing on a 2D platformer, makes me wonder if Martinet gets his lap of honour here and/or if we're going to get some Miyamoto weirdness.

1) intentional pun?

2) given Nintendo responded to questions about who would voice the characters in this by basically saying "buy the game and find out" I wouldn't hold my breath

Yeah, we'll probably get the Martinet video that they promised here as well.

I suspect that this is also where they'll announce the online play features too.

I've already pre-ordered it, so I might give this a miss.

No sense ruining any surprises.

Looks like a new Switch model is set to be announced here! 

...a Mario Edition Switch OLED :p

Stream is up and ready to go:

I'll be watching this as I doubt I'll be picking up Wonder on Day 1 (the backlog and Spidey 2 are calling my name :p), but I am really curious to see how this one turns out!

Love Maw-maws (Clodsire, anyone?) and very funny that there's an ability to swing around and stick to walls...when this game launches the same day as Spider-Man 2 :laughing: this looks like a lot of fun! 

The Mario Edition Switch OLED looks nice too! Love the coins hidden away inside the dock on the cable input/output housing :D

That's the exact same layout of coins as the underground section in 1-1 of Super Mario Bros, BTW.
