The Super Mario Bros. Movie is out in less than a week, and with promos and adverts in full swing, there are still a few things we don’t actually know about the movie. of course,

One of those is that the voice of Mario, Charles Martinet, is reportedly getting a few cameo roles in the upcoming film. But none of those have been revealed yet. However, Spanish film and entertainment website eCartelera has reportedly got the scoop on who Martinet will be playing in the movie (thanks, Nintenderos).

“This is morally and physically exhausting for the employees”.

A recent investigation by NME has found reports of crunch culture and poor working conditions in game development at Ubisoft Paris following a similar allegation by the French trade union Solidaires Informatique last week alleging high rates of sick leave and developer ‘burn out’.

The report includes direct quotes from several developers on Just Dance 2023 and claims that Ubisoft Paris workers encountered a “mess” during the game’s production, with multiple unrealistic demands being set by studio bosses.

*spooking intensifies*.

It’s remarkable how easy it can be to see the effects of developers’ genuine passion when playing a video game. In Kraino Origins—the product of one man, Angel Dorantes—you can just feel how much appreciation the dev has for classic retro platformers. Better yet, it turns out that he clearly understands what made the classics so great; Kraino Origins is a good time.

You take the role of the titular skeleton and are tasked with going through eight levels of spooky, scary action. Gameplay takes the shape of a typical retro action platformer, and Kraino is clearly inspired by many of the classics. There’s a little bit of Mega Man in here, a little more Castlevania, some Super Mario Bros. 3, but Kraino doesn’t feel overly derivative of such titles, largely because of its excellent level design. Each level is thematically distinct and introduces a few unique level gimmicks, such as conveyor belts or floating leaves, which are slowly built up into harder challenges over the course of the stage.

But please, no discord in the Discord.

Did you know Nintendo Life has its own Discord server? Well, we do. And we’ve spruced the place up quite a bit to get it all ship shape for all of you lovely readers.

Admittedly, we’ve had the server for a little while now, letting it sit around and gather dust. But we’ve been working hard to bring it all up to date as a community hub for all things Nintendo Life (and Nintendo. And video games. And whatever else you fancy).

It’s-a the last of us.

When it comes to objects found within the universe of Super Mario, it’s generally best to be somewhat ignorant of their origins. Yes, we might ponder who built the numerous green pipes found within the Mushroom Kingdom and why there are so many question blocks floating about, but really – why worry?

If you’ve found yourself wondering exactly how 1-Up Mushrooms came to be, then a 1996 Super Mario 64 manga has the answer for you. As highlighted by Supper Mario Broth on Twitter (thanks, Time Extension), it appears that the mushrooms actually grow from Mario’s dead body.
