Nintendo Announced that Chris Pratt will Play Mario on the Big Screen

It’s me, Bert McLean! Chris Pratt plays Voice as Mario in a feature film working with Nintendo Illumination, the studio that produced “Despicable Me.” Also, they didn’t tell us on Nintendo Direct who the new “smash” fighter was.

But we can’t be too disappointed, because apparently Anya Taylor-Joy Peach, Jack Black Bowser, Charlie Day Luigi and the recent TechCrunch disruptive guest (shameless plug) Seth Rosen Donkey Kong, representing what I’ve always wanted from Nintendo.

Anyway, we’ll have to wait until December 2022 to see if it’s a flop or a hit, but the recent TechCrunch disruptive guest Ryan Reynolds killed it in 2019 as the title of “Detective Pikachu”, so let’s have an open mind on this. 

However, in terms of intriguing events, we won’t have to wait long… Nintendo announced that it will add a new subscription tier for the first time since launching its online subscription Nintendo Switch service in September 2018. This tier, known as the Nintendo Switch Online+ Expansion membership, will give you access to games from Nintendo 64 and SEGA, including “Super Mario 64,” “Mario Kart 64” (which you can play online with up to four players), “Yoshi’s Story,” “Sonic the Hedgehog 2,” and “Castlevania: Bloodlines,” with more to come. Nintendo hasn’t revealed the price, but it will be available in late October.

The current annual internet plan is $19.99. Wireless Nintendo 64 and SEGA controllers are available for $49.99 each, and while they appeal to our nostalgic side, they aren’t essential to play. In other significant news, Nintendo Switch will get “Kirby and the Forgotten Land,” a new 3D platforming adventure in the Kirby series, in spring 2022. Also, for those of us who haven’t played “Animal Crossing: New Horizons” in a while because we’re terrified of offending our villagers, I guess we’ll have to get over it.

In November, a free update will arrive on our shores, and more information will be released in an October episode of Nintendo Direct dedicated to “Animal Crossing.” Players will receive access to the Roost, a café inside the Museum, according to today’s webcast. Other games, such as “Animal Crossing: New Leaf,” included this pleasant hangout.
