I think I like the new Normal mode a bit more than the usual mode which is now called Pro. I find odd, though, that while you are in the lobby of Normal mode, you can’t play with the bgm like in every other lobby of the game. Btw, Dikong, if I get a friend request while recording, I usually wait until the recording is done to accept the friend request.
Aka, Nintendo of America’s recent tweet foolishness.
Nintendo of America recently posted this on their Twitter to promote the upcoming Nintendo Switch Online service:
Play Super Mario Bros. 3 online with #NintendoSwitchOnline when the service launches this September and relive the classic #NES game that brought renowned power-ups such as Raccoon Mario to the world of Super Mario Bros.! https://t.co/ZPh216goDt pic.twitter.com/4wuBC9DKFp

So their telling us that, with the new Nintendo Switch Online, we’ll be able to play Super Mario Bros. 3 online. A game where the two player mode is not simultaneous but instead is by turns.
Checking the full list of the first 20 titles that will be available, they could have selected either:
- Mario Bros.
- Balloon Fight
- Ice Climber
- Dr. Mario
All of those games have simultaneous multiplayer mode which would actually show the online service much better. But instead, they go with a game that goes by turns when switching player.
The only way NoA could have made this worse would have been if they had tweeted about playing The Legend of Zelda online.
(Btw, if you look carefully at Nintendo’s screenshot, the game isn’t even being played online but in single player mode, as noted by the player icons on the left. An actual online screenshot is at the bottom of this page.)
Like usual, Nintendo has recently sent an email to their Japanese users with a link to a another wallpaper set. Here’s the URL to the newest one for Summer 2018.
Here’s another old wallpaper I made quite a few years ago. This one’s based on Super Mario Galaxy. At one point, it was available at N Masters but now it’s not available anywhere AFAIK.
Again, like most of the other ones, there’s no other sizes available. It’s a simple wallpaper but I like how it came out with the starry background effect I did.

Time for another Look At, this time focusing on the just released and arrived Octotune Splatoon 2 OST, the Limited Edition that also includes a Blu-ray.
As usual, Nintendo has sent out a few wallpapers to Japanese Switch users who have played their latest published title. Here’s the link to access them.
The link contains wallpapers for PC, mobile devices, and tablets.
Here is the sad truth of what happens now when you try to access the regular site for the Mario Tennis franchise.
It seems that Nintendo wants to make people forget that Mario Tennis Ultra Smash existed. (The site still exists but at a different URL that’s harder to find. )
Had a bit of trouble in this one until I noticed there’s a completely safe area around the battle arena. Btw, this video and the last one are actually from last month, I just hadn’t had the chance to upload them.
