Wario is or was Mario's cousin
Where did you dig up that from?

Some fandom wikis claim it. Wario's official wikipedia page doesn't mention it.

Still using the legacy editor? Get SMBX2 and PGE, it will improve your experience significantly. Here's why. And remember, Yoshi's are tools to be used and discarded.

Did y'all know that Final Fantasy I, II, & IV was actually ported to a Japan-only handheld system called the Bandai Wonderswan? Well now you know!


Still surprised that Square didn't port them to GBC!

Apparently, how the mini goombas in SMB3 worked, is that they put an invisible, empty coin block above mario.

Believe it or not, that is actually true. Also the company that made the game got blamed 1 day after the release of the game.

I learn that "something" from watching Vinesauce Joel's stream of Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins:

Did ya know that (Nintendo) only used the Bunny Mario form once and never used that form again in future classical Mario titles because parents complaint about the bunny form looks too much like a playboy bunny*? How sad imo!

*I thought that sounds very silly, as I don't see anything about bunny Mario that makes is similar to a playboy bunny tbh.

This is a pretty interesting thing about not a video game/video game franchise/video game character, but a programmable sound generator chip* used in some consoles and handhelds:

Did ya know that the original SEGA Master System, Mega Drive/Genesis, Game Gear systems and the SNK Neo Geo Pocket (Both original and color) used the same 8-bit/16-bit sound generator chip? Well know you know!


*The sound chip is called the Texas Instruments SN76489, used in many old school consoles

Question: Can we also include facts about video game composers in this thread? If so, then here's something some of ya SMBX members didn't know:

Did ya know that Yoko Shimomura (Y'all know, the composer for the Kingdom Hearts, + Mario & Luigi RPG series) compose for the CPS1 version of Street Fighter II?
