Ah, Mario Day. That special time of year where fans can pay slightly less for games and merch featuring the Nintendo icon and his cohort of crazy characters. He can even be found in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, which is the truest form of success if you ask me.
Mario is everywhere, and we thought it only fitting to celebrate his day at Game Informer as well. But instead of just going live with some of his classic adventures, we thought we’d spice it up for our beautiful GI community. It’s a battle of the Alexes on today’s livestream as Alex Van Aken and I go head to head in Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury!
The rules are simple. We’ll be hopping into Super Mario 3D World’s newly-added campaign to see who can collect 20 cat shines the quickest. We’ll both be starting with a fresh save, and as a bonus, you’ll be able to watch both screens to see who reigns supreme by the end of the stream! Which Alex will reign supreme? What are we willing to put on the line? You’ll have to tune in to find out.
We’ll be going live at noon CT and playing Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury until around 2 p.m. CT, so be sure to join us for this fun competitive stream! If you can’t get enough of our live shows, remember to subscribe on YouTube, Twitch, Twitter, and Facebook to get notified when we go live each week! Thanks, and we hope you enjoy the stream!
If you can’t get enough of everyone’s favorite Italian plumber, be sure to check out our review of the Switch’s latest and greatest port, and our reminder that your days are numbered when it comes to picking up Super Mario 3D All-Stars.
