Nintendo has released the endlessly-catchy theme song that present in the new gameplay trailer for Super Mario Odyssey, and it’s something else. A big brass band plays, with some fantastic meta vocals by Pauline, the damsel-in-distress from the original Donkey Kong game, who just so happens to also be the mayor of New Donk City, the home of Odyssey.
Yesterday, Nintendo and Universal Studios Japan had their groundbreaking ceremony for the long-rumored Super Nintendo World feature in their theme park. Now, after years of waiting, we have a first official look at what the park could be. The two have released a hype-trailer detailing the possibilities with Mario running around a brightly colored Super Mario-inspired world.
Super Nintendo World is set to release in Japan in 2020.
DC Super Hero Girls has been a boon for the company and its representation with young children, and it would appear they don’t plan on slowing down that train any time soon. The short web-series, and toy line is officially getting an animated action-comedy series from Warner Bros. Animation in 2018. The series will have “fresh character designs” and writing by producer Lauren Faust (Super Best Friends Forever, Powerpuff Girls).
The world may know them as Wonder Woman, Supergirl and Batgirl, but not-so-typical teenagers Diana, Kara and Barbara, alongside their Super Hero friends have much more to deal with than just protecting the citizens of Metropolis from some of the most sinister school-aged Super-Villains of the DC Universe. After all, being teens is tough enough, what with school, friends, family and the chaos that comes with managing a social life. But add super powers and a secret identity to the mix, and things can get a lot more complicated.
Sure, gal pals Bumblebee, Zatanna and Green Lantern Jessica Cruz are always there to lend an ear, a shoulder to cry on, and a fist to punch with, and their bros in the Justice League amp up the fun whether they’re at a concert or taking down a crime ring. But what happens when Diana and her favorite study buddy and fencing partner, Tatsu, can’t agree on how to dole out justice as Wonder Woman and Katana? Or when Barbara finds out her Gotham-Con bestie is teen-fiend Harley Quinn? Along with all their friends, foes and frenemies, this squad of super teens navigates the unique growing pains that come when you’re a teenager trying to fight the battles of the world and the battles of growing up at the same time.
