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, Yoshis 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!

Somehow, this image is in the files of Rugrats: Time Travelers for the GameBoy Color

This is a reference to a case where Microsoft got accusations for monopolistic practices

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?

Did y'all SMBX members know that Sonic the Hedgehog 2's launch day (Excluding launch day in Japan & Korea) is a holiday celebrating SEGA's biggest event for the Genesis know as "Sonic2Day" in November 24, 1992*? Heard about that from PatMac on YouTube!





*Which takes place on a Tuesday, just a fun fact to add. ^^"

Did ya know that Wario was supposed to make his first game debut on the Sega Genesis, in partnership with (Nintendo) & Sega? Just because Wario's farts would sound better in the Genesis sound engine.

More evidence asides from one tweet? I'm a bit skeptical.
Now taking graphics requests:

Really tempted to just make a general graphics thread for all of my graphics instead of just making individual threads for each of them.
