“I got a feeling we’re not in Brooklyn no more.” What a line, right? The Super Mario Bros. movie from 1993 was and is exceptionally bad.

Even Nintendo admits it. While the publisher has come a long way, especially over the past …

Nintendo’s Reggie Fils-Aimé on the evolution of Super Mario Odyssey

From the outside, at least, Nintendo is a study in contradictions, at once devoted to the constant development of new gaming experiences, while remaining deferential and staunchly loyal to its past. Fittingly, the gaming giant’s American president Reggie Fils-Aimé references its longtime executives and creative forces with great reverence, quoting predecessors several times over the course of our half-hour-long conversation ahead of the launch of Super Mario Odyssey. The game has been out for a …
