Nintendo Fun Club Episode 2 - Disastrous Chin Beards

Our main topic this episode is the New Super Mario Bros. games. We discuss the history, faults, and merits of the series, and make predictions about the two NSMB games that will be shown at E3.


Monolithsoft is a first party, not second party Nintendo developer. Also, Zelda: Skyward Sword was patched via Wii Channel, not through email.

In news this episode we talk Wii U games showing up on, Sakurai's visit to Platinum Games, Kid Icarus Uprising's fantastic English localization, prom, an Avengers game for Kinect and... Wii U?, Nintendo's domination in Japan during Golden Week, April NPDs, Monster World IV, the sad state of the Virtual Console in the U.S., Club Nintendo rewards, Wii game backwards compatibility on Wii U, cargo shorts, and more.
