Give me some background on
the Turtle Empire?
I don't know if there is a whole lot of information on
the Koopa Empire (it hasn't been called The Turtle Empire since the
days of "PeeWee Herman's Big Adventure". Basically, Bowser
just has this obssession with beating Mario. We're not sure why he's
chosen Mario as his nemesis. And he's certainly not in love with
Princess Toadstool. He seems to just view her as a source of bait for
getting Mario to chase him.
I'm not sure what Bowser's
goals are. I'm not even sure if his kids are still officially part of
the Mario universe. Nintendo seems to have not been serious about
keeping continuity with the characters, until Super Mario World was
released on the SNES. And with Mario RPG, we gained all kinds of
insight into their lives, but Bowser's problem with domination was
still not explained. I think he's just starved for attention, really.
Hi there...you have a terrific
I'm hoping you can help me find
an on-line Mario store...not for games, but t-shirts, plush toys,
posters, etc. I've looked everywhere with no success.
Thank you very much. :) As a matter of fact, I wrote a letter to
Nintendo themselves a couple days ago, asking them that very question!
They replied back that they do not directly sell such items, but have
a Store section on the Nintendo website where you can find out how to
Of course, I've saved you the
trouble. :) The link to Nintendo's complete Licensees (companies
legally able to sell Nintendo merchandise), can be found here.
And Nintendo's Retail Store Locator, can be found here.
Thanks for supporting the Super
Mario Bros. Super Site!
that new poll thing's kewl! I think Wario's the bad guy!
You could be right. But who knows? :) Mario Sunshine looks poised to
shatter sales records when it's released late August.
