Mario’s Hat Celebrates Its First Anniversary!

648px-SuperMarioartToday marks the first anniversary of Mario’s Hat, and I can’t think of a better way to celebrate than by… well, doing the same thing I did when the site launched!

Last week was Nintendo of Canada’s annual post-E3 event here in Toronto, held for folks such as myself who were unable to make it out to Los Angeles earlier in June to see everything first-hand. Of course, these events tend to focus more on the rest of the calendar year, so here is what I’ll be delivering hands-on impressions of throughout the rest of this week: Super Mario 3D World, Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, Mario & Luigi: Dream Team, The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds, Mario & Sonic at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games, Wii U Party, and Pikmin 3.

Sadly, Mario Kart 8 is slated for 2014, and so wasn’t available– I should have gone for it when I had the chance at Best Buy! But without giving away too much, I will say that even without it, there is plenty to look forward to on both the Wii U and Nintendo 3DS in the months ahead!
