Mario on the front cover and four separate Mario articles in the magazine itself? Yes, Retro Gamer has gone Mario crazy to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Nintendo gaming mascot, including ‘The Complete History of Mario’, ‘The Ultimate Guide to Super Mario Bros. 3’, ‘Retro Revival: Super Mario 64’ and ‘Endgame: Super Mario Bros 2’. Other highlights include ‘2D Gaming: Here and Back Again’, ‘The Making of… Pilot Wings 64’, ‘The Making of… Leather Goddesses of Phobos’, ‘Classic Game: Impossible Mission’, ‘Same Name, Different Game: Bionic Commando’, ‘In the Chair with… Sid Meier’ and the usual regulars. The magazine has just appeared across stores in the UK and oversees readers should be getting it pretty soon as well.
